“He was honest and forthright”: woman writes about how she was dumped on a video conference app
Coronavirus has forced most relationships to be long-distance. And with love comes heartbreak – as one woman found out amid the global pandemic.
Buzzfeed writer Julia Moser detailed her embarrassing but “compassionate” breakup in her article “Getting Dumped During A Pandemic.”
In the piece, she detailed that she’d only been dating Josh (name changed for privacy) for a few months. They’d had some intimate moments and even a few virtual dates. Then one day, the pair got on Zoom and Josh had to break the news that this short-lived relationship was over.
He admitted that after leaving a seven-year relationship, he just was not ready to date again.
The hardest part? Not being able to vent with her sister and girlfriends after the embarrassing ordeal.
“There is something particularly bruising about this happening in the midst of a global public health crisis. I can’t have my friends come over and bring me sheet cake and wine,” said Moser.
Moser said, “the worst part” was that Josh was incredibly compassionate. She was happy that he didn’t merely ghost her.
“He was honest and forthright,” wrote Moser. “It was an incredibly decent thing for him to do, and I am miserable.”

Being Single During, ‘The Rona’ Are Women Lonely Or Just Alone? By Michael Baisden
In the words of one of my female followers, “What a fucked up time to be single!” I love her honesty! And other women are sharing their raw feelings about being single and alone during the Coronavirus Crisis. Check out some of the comments from my Facebook page, first from women who hate being single during this quarantine.
Chris Thomas I am single. No family, but lots of people to have a phone conversation with. I have been single for 20 years. Since Coronavirus quarantine, I regretfully admit not making relationships a priority. Thought I was good, until this. Attitude Adjustment when this is over.
Melanie Mills Yep lonely as hell
Sarah Sarah I HATE IT. 😷
Yvette Fambro It’s been very depressing, I am single and have been for 13 years, I always pray that I meet my soulmate, but I guess it won’t happen now.
Shantelle Link Being single is scary. I’m in healthcare and I think every day about possibly ending up with this terrible virus and dying alone, leaving my daughter alone. Being independent is great until you need someone to depend on.
But there are two sides to every story. Some women aren’t as disappointed about being single as others. In fact, some women see this crisis as an opportunity to be more introspective. And still, others prefer to be alone during this stressful time.
Kattya Rojas I’m good being single, I still enjoy my peace and alone time. There are many who are miserable being home with their partner right now, who needs that kind of added stress right now. Plus, I’m working from home, so I don’t have a lot of down time. However, I think I will try to devote more time to dating and finding the right partner after Rona.
Michelle Morton I think this is the best time to be single. I can get to know myself better and make clear decisions about what I want. I can tell you that this time has made me see where I was “settling” instead of waiting for what I deserve. #noworries #nodrama #memykidsmyGod #peace
April Cooper I feel great! I can’t imagine being stuck in the house every day with the same person for weeks on end. I’d end up as a guest star on an episode of Snapped.
It’s easy to dismiss these comments as lies and delusional but I believe there are plenty of women who enjoy and even celebrate their time alone. Whether they are healing from a painful and abusive relationship from their past or simply using this time to be introspective, work on their businesses, spend quality time with their children, or focusing on their health, some women are better off alone.
But you must admit, it’s sad that those women who want to be in a quality relationship can’t find one or haven’t made time for one. And it’s not until times like this that many of us, both men and women, don’t realize the value of having someone we can lean on until we are forced to be still.
