Should You Ever Dump Someone Over The Phone Like Emily Maynard Did To Brad Womack?

Emily dumped her former Bachelor fiance over the phone. Harsh — or acceptable?

Ouch. Emily Maynard decided to ditch her fiance, Brad Womack, April because she feared he was cheating. But instead of breaking it off with The Bachelor star face to face, Em cut her ties with a phone call. Is this an acceptable way to behave when you’ve loved someone?

The Southern gal was planning on moving her 5-year-old daughter, Ricki, to Texas to be with Brad, but after realizing her fiance may have been living a debaucherous lifestyle of booze and women in Austin, she called it quits — literally.  “Emily told Brad that she can’t picture them getting married,” a source told Life & Style. “Brad’s not acting like a fiance, and she knows that he’s not going to change. Emily knows in her heart of hearts that the relationship is finished.”

But should she have ended it on the phone?

It’s never cool when someone tells you it’s over via a call, email or text, and there are very few exceptions (cheating being one of them. Why play nicely when someone has disrespected you?). But Emily was suspicious that Brad cheated — she didn’t have proof. Not only that, they were engaged to be married. It wasn’t like the two had been casually dating for a month. She made a bad, callous decision here.

Should you end your relationship in person or take the easy way out? If you’ve loved someone, you should respect them enough to do the deed face to face. Don’t be a coward. Just think how you’d feel if the tables were turned. Doesn’t feel good, does it?

She probably would have broken it off face to face but can’t because he keeps canceling flights and plans to go see her. What else should she do?? Laura, what would you do? You people are idiots. Why the hell should she waste an airline ticket on a guy that isn’t calling her back and ignoring her. I’m sorry, but I was a fan of this couple for a long time but now after hearing her story and Laurel Kaygay’s story, I’m seeing the true Brad.

Bars and booze owns him and vice versa. He was cheating before the show and apparently afterwards. He lies so well. I was not seeing anyone in the years between shows. Well, forgetting he asked at least one woman to marry him just before the show. He’s a helluva whore.

IF she did in fact break up with him it should have been done face to face. She would have wanted the same thing if he broke up with her. Love is a two way street. He shouldn’t have been expected to do all the traveling. f I am sure there is more to the story than what is being spread in the tabloids. Her friends obviously don’t care about her “privacy” if they are talking to the tabloids. Doesn’t sound like very good friends to me.

I’d do it… they are states apart, and I’m certainly not going to fly across country to dump someone… nor am I going to sit around and wait until they show up on my doorstep. There’s a life to live out there, and she’s choosing to live it, instead of waiting for Brad

He would eventually have come to visit, and she should have told him then, face to face.

You would fly half way across the country just to tell him to his face it’s over after the guy won’t even reportedly respond to any of your calls or call you? Really? I know I wouldn’t.
