The best breakup letter you’ll ever read

Broken hearts across North America are uniting around what could be the most epic breakup letter ever, posted to the social media site Your Tango for your own guilty pleasure.

The letter, which the anonymous author sent to her ex via text message, was written six weeks after her nine-month relationship ended abruptly.

According to Your Tango, the woman was shocked when her then-boyfriend ended things by telling her that he was "committed to a friendship" but not a relationship. Then, six weeks later, she discovered that he'd been cheating on her with his ex the whole time they dated.

After confronting her ex about the infidelity, she sent him the following scathing response:

Don't worry, darling. My anger won't last long. I know your life is already your punishment. A 40-year-old man of mediocre accomplishment who's incapable of true intimacy, who casually lies and cheats, who's being sued by his own aunt, who hardly has the love of his own family, who has few friends and no community to speak of, who's been living in his musty, forgotten childhood home in suburban New Jersey for almost a year, alone, at 40, who isn't even close to his ultimate dream of a book deal, who is frail, insecure, pathetic, tortured, has no moral fiber, who's dissatisfied with his career and is constantly traveling to corporate wastelands.

And then a woman comes along and tries to love him, encourage his dreams, invite him to be her "other whole," and he repays her kindness with lies, secrecy, a handful of sh*tty chocolates he probably picked up at the airport on his way home from France, an unceremonious breakup based on his own inability to get close to someone who has her sh*t together and with whom he could have a real partnership, and tops it off by having an affair with his ex the entire time — at an apartment just ten blocks away from his girlfriend's. And projects onto his girlfriend that she was the untrustworthy one. And tells her the breakup was about "something I just can't put my finger on."

This is who you are: an aging, sad, sneaky, devious man who travels from one hotel to another, putting on a face for strangers, living out of a suitcase, having no real home and no connections, lying to others, lying to himself. So I don't have to humiliate you. Your entire life is one big humiliation. And no matter how much you meditate, do yoga and undergo therapy, this will never change. This is who you are.

While certainly unique, this isn't the first awe-worthy breakup letter to hit the internet lately. This summer, a woman who discovered through Facebook that her live-in boyfriend was cheating on her wrote an awesome breakup letter that went viral after being posted to Reddit. In it, she explains to her ex that he can find his belongings scattered in various places throughout their city -- locations with sentimental value to the two of them.
