Ending a relationship

How to end a relationship

  • Explain in person; don’t do it by SMS or email or via a friend
  • Be respectful
  • Thank the person for the good times
  • Offer to stay friends…but lessen the times you see each other/avoid being alone with that person
  • Say nice things about the person or keep quiet if you can’t think of anything good to say; don’t gossip or trash the person name with others
  • Move on; try to not dwell on the past relationships.
  • Learn from each relationship; think about what you did right and where you can improve.
