Beginning a relationship can be hard. But a breakup can be just as hard – if you don’t do it right! If you stick to these tips that tell you how to end a relationship, you might just survive the breakup unharmed…
HOW TO END A RELATIONSHIP GONE BAD
Or: How to break up with your girlfriend while you still can!
- Make sure that you are the first person to tell her that you want to break up.
Otherwise you will be dealing with a woman scorned before you even get a chance to actually scorn her (so to speak)
- Choose a neutral place – not at your own nor at her house.
Bonus: if you break up in a public place, she is less likely to cause a scene.
- Tell her yourself – and in person.
No messengers, letters, emails, text messages, post it notes (it’s all been done and it’s simply bad form).
- Make it clear – but make it short.
You need to give a reason for your breakup, but you don’t need to discuss every single good and bad aspect of your relationship at length.
- Make it seem logical – to her and to yourself.
It might help to write down your reasons before the breakup, in order to get them straight.
- Don’t change your mind!
No matter how much she cries, begs or pleads. If you backtrack now, it will be so much harder to give it a second try.
- Set an end to ending it.
It’s not a bad idea to have an appointment planned so you can leave at an appropriate time.
