Break up online dating
A recent study identified 7 ways people break up, and 6 of them are not very nice.
Even if you feel justified, take the high road and don’t be jerk.
It’s no fun getting dumped, and it’s no fun doing the dumping.
But sometimes breaking up is necessary, and you just have to roll up your sleeves and get it over with. Swizzle said, “So it’s gonna be forever/Or it’s gonna go down in flames.” No one is perfect at breaking up, and we could all try to be better.
Hit your bullet points without taking overly long: “Danielle, we have been fighting too much, and it’s not healthy. I’ve thought a lot about it, and I’m not interested in working on it — I just want to move on.” Say it out loud to yourself beforehand.
Even if the other person is being nasty, don’t engage and make it a fight.
This is how people end up burning each other’s possessions, so don’t go that route. First say something nice, next slip in your concern, and then end with something positive.
Don’t be a chump who continues to cause hurt by avoiding the issue.
Confront the breakup head-on with poise and understanding. Everyone will heal faster and feel better about it.
