Breakup Filipino style: Text, Call or Message...

Did you know that 58% of polled Filipinos admit to breaking up with someone using their mobile phone? In an online survey of over 500 Filipinos, 58% of respondents admit to using mobile phones to end relationships. Almost 30% used texts, 22% called, and 7% used instant messenger. The use of emojis was not measured.

The online survey on "Heartbreaks and Healing" conducted by Lazada, the country's leading online selling and shopping destination, wanted to investigate how technology has affected how we get together, fight, break up, and move on.

When it comes to developing relationships online profiling has become a standard practice. 54% of respondents check a potential date's social media profile before going out on one. Online research and dating is now so intertwined that even if they like someone in person, 60% of people have said that they lost interest after doing more research on social media. 

Even after breaking up, more than half of the respondents (52%) report stalking their ex's social media page.

While breakups are tough, 1 out of every 3 respondents, ended up getting back together with their ex.

How to get back together? Trust is one important factor. Almost 65% of respondents say they share their email, phone and app passwords with their significant other.

Gifts don't hurt too. 75% of respondents agree that giving gifts helps in the reconciliation process. "I'm sorry Gifts" don't have to be expensive though, with 69% of respondents saying they do not have higher expectations.

At the end of the day, if you and your significant other (SO) stay together or drift apart, it is important to not harbor any ill will. More people want to wish their exes well this Valentine’s day (40%) than not think of them at all (33%).
