Breaking up with your significant other can be hard and awkward at the same time. If you don’t want to face them, you might need a few different methods to break up with them. Here are a few different ways to break it off.
1) The truth:
The truth will always be the best way. It will probably hurt the most but you will feel better afterwards. The worst feeling is being lied to, especially by someone you thought you trusted.
2) It’s not you, it’s me:
Telling the other person they are great but you are not ready for the commitment will let them feel good about themselves. The majority of the time, this is not really how the relationship is. It is a great way to get out of a nasty break up.
3) Phone call:
If you are too afraid to face him/her in person, you can always make a phone call. If they answer, you need to make some sort of excuse as to why you cannot see them in person. You can always tell them you have left the state and won’t be back for a while.
4) Voice mail:
When we make a phone call to break up with someone, we are always hoping they don’t answer. The easiest way to deliver bad news is by leaving a message for them to get later. It is probably the most cowardly way to break a heart but it happens all the time.
5) Text message:
The one thing worse than a break up voice mail is a break up text message. If you are trying to tell the person they are not worth a few minutes of your time, this is the way to go. These are great for the “stalker girlfriend” who would constantly call you wanting to hang out. Send her a quick text message and she will get the hint.
If you send a break up email letter, you have not met the new millennium. No one really uses email anymore. This method of a break up is more for the older people who have yet to adapt to the new technology of cell phones.
Facebook is the latest way to communicate with the world. Your every move is posted on this social networking website. If you want everyone you know to hear about your life, break up with your significant other via the internet. It is a great way to humiliate someone in front of all of their friends.
8) Throwing their stuff out:
If you live with the person you are trying to break up with, nothing says “I’m through” more than a pile of their belongings in the street. If you throw their clothing and other personal items in the trash, they will probably get the hint.
9) Changing your number:
If your boyfriend/girlfriend are blowing up your phone and trying to get a hold of you nonstop, changing your number will get the point across that you have no interest in them.
10) Changing the locks:
If you gave your significant other a key to your place, it can be awkward asking for it back. Instead, you can change the locks so they cannot get in the apartment. This will let them know you don’t want them inside.
Breaking up can be one of the hardest things to do. Use some of these tips to make it a little bit easier.
