Hugh: Gen Z Now Prefers to be Broken up with Via Text Message
Written by Hugh Campbell on July 11, 2023
A CommBank poll of Gen Z respondents found that 90% of Gen Zers are anxious about speaking on the phone…and an awkward call inspires as much fear as heights or crocodiles.
In fact, 1 out of 5 Gen Zers have broken up with a partner over text message.
“Most people would prefer it, as it saves a really awkward chat,” 26-year-old Kean said. “I think that if you have been dating casually for a little while, texting to say you’re not interested is fine.”
Although they prefer to chat over text, 98 of Gen Zers do say it’s important for them to stay connected with friends and family.
