Young adults are choosing to end relationships by text or, if not, via social media.

More than half (56 per cent) of those who went through a break-up last year ended their relationship digitally; either through text message, social media or email.

Two in three (62 per cent) of the respondents claimed that they had been the one to end their last relationship.

The majority (55 per cent) who ended their relationship via text message explained that it made the process ‘less awkward’, while 61 per cent of those who dumped on social media said they did so as they had ‘deleted or blocked’ their last partner’s phone number.
