Relationships don't always work out and sometimes the ending of those love affairs leaves people with bad memories forever.
Love can be the best or worse thing to happen to someone and sometimes relationships don't end on good terms.
Earlier this week, South Africans started #HowIGotDumped and they opened up on ways their exes had broken their hearts.
Briefly.co.za decided to take a look at 10 of the best and painfully hilarious memes shared under the viral hashtag.
1. Period pains
Social media user, @katlehothough, said his ex told him he reminded her of period pains every time he spoke. Ouch!
2. Respect the side bae
One man did not appreciate his girlfriend having a side bae - however, the other man paid everything, including their rent and food.
3. Getting dumped by a clown
Social media user, @Micheal_O1O, wrote:
"#HowIGotDumped is that we drove to the circus. I was left there until I got a call saying who's the joke now, bye."
4. The laughing stock
A tweep, @Lit_N, revealed his bae dumped him because he loved her too much and she did not deserve it.
However, she then posted about another guy on her status and called him the "love of my life".
5. When she's not an Amakhosi fan
A man got dumped because his bae's friends thought he looked like Kaizer Chiefs player, Katsande.
He said he hated the Chiefs from that day on.
6. Can't argue with God's will
After @kayy_tatts's bae returned from a church conference she told him a prophet said she should cut ties with him.
"Couldn't fight God's work ey," he wrote.
7. Long distance doesn't always work
A tweep, @Thabisokale3, was dumped because his church-going girlfriend did not want a long distance relationship.
She moved to another city and said God did not approve of long distance relationships otherwise He would have placed Adam and Eve in different gardens.
8. Haibo, this one just doesn't make sense
A man got dumped because his bae wanted a guy like him but not him. Yeah, because that makes sense.
9. Loving to much is... bad?
10. Love 'em and block 'em
