Ending the Relationship

Ending the Relationship

A relationship can be successful when both individuals involved are happy and satisfied with the way things are going. If you are sure that you do not want to continue and want out, prepare yourself to break the news to your partner. This is not going to be easy for the other person no matter how convinced you are that it is entirely their fault.

  • Meet in person: Do not discuss this over the phone / email or chat. Instead, meet them personally to talk about how you feel.
  • Be calm: Make sure that you are calm and composed while talking about a break-up.
  • Do not blame the other person entirely: Share the responsibility when you tell them why you feel that relationship is not working.

Also, make sure that your talk does not end abruptly or on a harsh note. It is always better to maintain friendships after breakups as you most likely will see each other again socially or might even get back together on different terms. Sometimes that timing is just not right and your priorities might not be in sync with your partner. No one is really to blame in this case. Being open and honest about the situation is a good thing and you’ll usually see it reciprocated.

If you have just broken up and ended a relationship with someone then take a little time to analyze what went wrong so that you don’t just go out on a rebound and get into the same mess again. This is probably one of the biggest relationship blunders: The Rebound. Everyone needs a little time for healing even if the relationship wasn’t a long or intense one. You might think that you are ready to be back in the relationship game but you need to also factor in or consider whether your ex has gotten over you so that you don’t hurt someone elses feelings because of your own selfessness.

    If you have a partner that doesn’t want to end the relationship then you need to be very direct with your feelings and intentions about them. Having friends with benefits can be fun but can also have a damaging effect in the long run. I always suggest a clean break.
