Living in the 21st Century is hard, relationships are harder and breakups the absolute worst. But fear not, there is a new service that will do the dirty work for you.
The Breakup Shop offers a wide array of exit strategies from text ($10) to handwritten letter ($20) to a phone call from a complete stranger ($29) with added charges for personalization of course. Still sound too good to be true? Worried about quality control? Motherboard put the service to the test on a mock-breakup with his girlfriend of 5 years and it worked like a charm, sorta. Because while the call felt a little awkward and you could definitely tell the Breakup Shop employee was reading from a script but, let's face it, at this point you're not going for tact.
Feel bad about breaking it off with someone and want to show them there's no hard feelings? The Breakup Shop also has you covered there as well with their "Gifts for Exes" section. There you can purchase a set of Two Wine Glasses, Chips Ahoy! Rainbow Cookies, Netflix Giftcards, Call of Duty: Ghosts for PS4, or a copy of The Notebook to help your former-loved one get through this rough time.
This 100% legitimate company is dead serious about making the end of your relationship as cold and unfeeling as its beginning. Their mission statement reads "The Breakup Shop believes everyone deserves to be single. Let us handle the messy work of the breakup so you can spend more time swiping right…Recently single? You are now." So stop stressing about how you're gonna break it to that no-longer-special someone. The Breakup Shop's got you covered.
