Finlands 'Sexiest Man' Dumps Girlfriend via SMS

 - Dec 5, 2006   Updated: Apr 28 2011
Text messaging is the newest medium for breakups. At least that's what Finland Prime Minister Matti Vanhanen decided. He broke up with his girlfriend by sending a text message. Earlier this year, Vanhanen was voted Finland's sexiest man, so if text breakups are good enough for him, they should be good enough for you.

Implications - It's easier to break up via text since you don't have to deal with the tears and whatever drama follows from the person you've separated with. With technology so dominant, it's clearly taking over how people communicate. Maybe breaking up via text is good enough for Vanhanen, but is it really good enough for you? Think of it on a moral basis.
