The poll also showed that 40 percent of people surveyed would have no problem breaking up with someone via electronic communication.

The New York Daily News reports:
The survey may not have been scientific, but it provided a peek into how the Internet is changing people’s love lives — and making the always painful breakup conversation impersonal and in many ways less messy.
Those questioned in the poll were all over the age of 18. Among the respondents, about 41% were single, 24% were in a relationship and 24% said they were married.
