“The end of a relationship is always sour for a lot of reasons and one reason that sits at the top of most is the way and manner in which the relationship was called off. As such, instead of looking for the best way to call off a relationship (there isn’t really any better way), it’s best to find know what ways you shouldn’t put an end to a relationship.”
Here are 8 of the worst possible ways to put an end to a relationship.
1. The “It’s not you, it’s me” line
Probably the most cliché and overplayed line, very few people would appreciate this old and recycled excuse when they are about to be dumped by you. If you’re sure you’re the problem, it’s best you explain the exact thing about your partner that doesn’t gel well with your kind of person.
You most likely won’t go very far by telling them the kind of horrible person you are and how much you need to work on yourself in an attempt to deflect from the talk at hand. They will most likely respect you more if you are honest with them.
2. Getting Caught In An Untoward Act
Allowing your partner catch you cheating is one of the fastest way to get them to break up with you but it speaks volumes about your reputation. If your plan is to make them come up with a reason to leave you, you may end up having your plan blow up in your face if they choose to tow the retaliation path.
3. While Tipsy or Drunk
Quite a number of men go this way as having a few too many drinks might give them the guts to break the news of wanting to break up. This will be disrespectful to your partner because alcohol gives momentary courage at that point in time and you may likely regret the deed later on.
Chances are your partner may not even take you seriously and insisting on talking about it at a later time because they feel your state of mind is altered. It’s best to be sober and have a clear mind as you convey your points in a mature and respectable manner.
4. Through Writing
Either through texting, E-mails, BlackBerry Messenger or other messaging applications, breaking up in such an informal way is immature and heartless. It’s best to do it in person as this will likely pass you off as someone with integrity while also saving you from embarrassment.
