HOW TO BREAK UP WITH SOMEONE USING STYLE AND SENSITIVITY

http://www.wikihow.com/Break-Up-with-Someone-Using-Style-and-Sensitivity

We all know breaking up is hard to do. But unless you’re Ross and Rachel, or some teen romance turned happily-ever-after, breaking up is an unavoidable part of life. And while it’s up to you to decide what your individual breakup style is, if you want to avoid future bad relationship karma, you’ll adopt a few breakup basics.

0.      The less public, the better. Don’t do it in a place where the person on the receiving end isn’t going to feel more vulnerable than necessary; however, beware of an overly remote situation in case your ex loses control and resorts to violence.

1.      Avoid holidays and special occasions like birthdays and anniversaries at all costs. Do you really want your ex remembering your insensitivity every time that day rolls around?

2.      If the relationship is relatively new, maybe you can get away breaking up over the phone. But come on, if you’ve been out on more than a handful of dates, isn’t that kind of harsh?

3.      No one likes to get dumped. But we at least appreciate the truth when it’s over. Unless, of course, the truth is you’ve stopped finding him/her attractive, you’ve met someone better, or that you’re just plain bored with the relationship.

4.      Don’t seem too happy about the breakup: you’ll come off as mean-spirited. Just be kind, caring, and considerate.

5.      Some people don’t handle rejection well. Some people yell, scream, or cry. But it doesn’t mean you should react to their meltdown. Remember, rejection is tough. You’ve already got the upper hand by being the dumper. Let the dumpee behave ridiculously if they choose to. And if their tantrum escalates, get the heck out of there! Don’t wait around for the aftermath!

 

  1. Be honest but sensitive.
  2. Choose the right time.
  3. Do it in person.
  4. Don’t react.
  5. Keep your emotions in check.
  6. Pick an appropriate place.
