A new survey asked men and women what the dumbest reasons they had been given by their significant other about why they had been dumped.

The survey was conducted by Female First and here are the results:

First, the ten dumbest excuses MEN have given for breaking up with someone:

  1. "You have too many sex toys, which is intimidating."
  2. "You ignored all my requests to leave the toilet seat up, which slows me down."
  3. "Your grandmother keeps giving me the eye and it creeps me out."
  4. "I had to play football in a dirty uniform because you didn't wash it in time."
  5. "You claimed to be a fan of Dostoyevsky but couldn't name Raskolnikov's sister in 'Crime and Punishment', so I think you are a fraud."
  6. "You said you had seen Blink 182 here, but they have never played here, which means you are not trustworthy."
  7. "My friends keep telling me you are not attractive and I can't take it."
  8. "You beat me all the time on Xbox and I can't take it."
  9. "Your cooking is not as good as my mom's and I don't think it's going to improve."
  10. "You wouldn't pick me up after a night out, so I had to pay $24 for a taxi."

And now the ten dumbest excuses WOMEN have given for breaking up with someone:

  1. "The way you pronounce words bothers me."
  2. "I don't like your aftershave, so this isn't going to work."
  3. "You never flush the toilet."
  4. "You don't cut your fingernails often enough."
  5. "Your breathing is too heavy."
  6. "I don't like the newspaper you read."
  7. "You're too close to your mother."
  8. "Our TV shows just are not compatible."
  9. "You're too clean and you shower twice a day, which is too much."
  10. "You won't turn on the heat when it's cold and tell me to wear a sweater, but my sweater is too tight and I don't want to wear it."

The dumbest reason I have ever gotten was "I have to break up with you before I cheat on you" after finding out months later that was exactly what she had been doing for months anyway.

So what is the dumbest reason you have gotten dumped, share it in the comments section below.
