However, things are different when it comes to breaking up.
Using social media makes things a lot less stressful when asking someone out on a date. It used to be that you would practice asking out someone you liked nervously in the mirror. Now with social media, you are not face to face so you're likely to be less nervous.
The same applies to breaking up. 36% of people say breaking up by phone call is okay. But a whopping 40% say it's okay to break up via text or social media.
Nobody does things face to face anymore.
