People may seek information on how to sustain a relationship, but they don’t often look up suggestions on how to break up with someone. Pay clear attention for signs that you are not in love or attracted to the person anymore and end it if you see these signs. Don’t be cruel, use cliches or give long, drawn out explanation for the breakup. Keep it simple. You shouldn’t end the relationship in public either and treat the person the way you would want to be treated.
- Listen to your intuition, basically you know when it’s not going to work out and you owe it to both of you to end the agony in as painless a manner as possible.
- It’s never okay to simply ghost someone, or act as if the two of you never happened, unless it really was a one-nighter.
- If you have progressed beyond a couple of dates, if there has been any investment in the relationship, it’s only humane to explain what went wrong and exit gracefully.
