The Brief: Skumped is when a person gets broken up with over Skype.
In the age of digital media, people are finding new ways to communicate with people whether that be through a platonic or romantic relationship dynamic. People are using social media in every aspect of their lives and that also includes digital breakups.
Similar to being Zumped, Skumping is the act of ending a relationship over Skype and this has apparently happened to many people before.

when i was in high school, my bf at the time was in uni & he decided to break up with me over skype, while he was at the library…studying with his friends. i was really sobbing over skype while his friends were at the same table as him when he told me that he didn’t love me

I was once in a long distance relationship but eventually I had to break up with her over Skype when I learned she was moving back.
