"I was broken up with because I told her that she did a very good Peter Griffin laugh. She thought I called her fat." -<a href="http://www.reddit.com/r/AskReddit/comments/1kgted/what_is_the_dumbest_reason_that_your_ex_dumped_you/cbosb4w" target="_blank">INFANT_RECEIVER</a>
"I dated a guy who lived about 20 minutes from my house. At the time I didn't have my own car, so he'd come to me. He broke up with me because the gas was too expensive. Mind you, he only saw me twice a week for like...two months. I had a job, and also offered to give him gas money but he said no. I think he was lying..." -<a href="http://www.reddit.com/r/AskReddit/comments/1kgted/what_is_the_dumbest_reason_that_your_ex_dumped_you/cbos2uk" target="_blank">Relacuna</a>

"I think I win with this one. An ex dumped me via a note (this was in early high school) that read 'The bad news is I think we should break up. The good news is you've saved money on your car insurance by switching to Geico.' <br> </br> This may not be a reason she dumped me, but hopefully you still find it amusing. I don't know why she dumped me, but apparently it had to do with my car insurance." -<a href="http://www.reddit.com/r/AskReddit/comments/1kgted/what_is_the_dumbest_reason_that_your_ex_dumped_you/cbos89m" target="_blank">ZacharyDavid</a>

"In fifth grade, my 'boyfriend' dumped me because his twin brother had just dumped his 'girlfriend.' Apparently they had to match...?

"We weren't allowed to date because of the companies we worked for. She broke up with me because she didn't want them to find out and get fired.
