    Email. The cheapest, most detached, most impersonal, and hurtful way to break up with someone you were once close to. Happened to me once. Worse than a slap in the face, the email implied "It's easier to do it this way than to treat you like a human being and give you...

    I've gotta say that the cold shoulder is the worst way. You have no idea what happened, if it's really the end (for a time at least), you have no idea why or how or what went wrong....it's terrible.
