How to Break Up Gently Yet Firmly

  • Don't let your relationship die out on it's own. Break up as soon as you decide that for you it's over.
  • Keep it simple. Don't go into long drawn out explanations. Chances are they won't hear them anyway, they will be too stunned about breaking up.
  • Keep it shot. Get right to the point
  • Always breakup in person. There's nothing worst than someone breaking up on the phone, email, or texting.
  • Don't leave the person with the hope of maybe you will come back. Make it a clean break.
  • Try to answer why in short concise explanations.
  • If it helps them you can blame yourself. However you breakup it is going to hurt both of you. Be compassionate.

How To Deal With Being Dumped

  • Go ahead and have a good cry
  • Get rid of everything that reminds you of your ex
  • Avoid coming in contact with your ex. If you know he is going to be someplace, don't go there.
  • Surround yourself with your friends and family.
  • Get out there and date. However, do it to have fun not to jump right back into a relationship
  • Love yourself
  • Give it time

What Not To Do When Dumped

  • Don't be hard on yourself. It takes two to make a couple.
  • Don't hold out hope for a reconciliation. Look at the breakup as being final. If it isn't all the better.
  • Don't beg or act desperate. "What am I going to do without you?"
  • Don't let your life stop. Keep yourself busy.
  • Don't keep yourself surrounded by all of his things and memories. In other words, don't fall asleep staring at his picture and wearing his t-shirt.
  • Sit yourself down and make up a list of the things you didn't like about him.
  • Don't isolate yourself. Get out take a class, join a group.
  • Don't dwell on or over-analyze your relationship. It won't do you any good and will only depress you.
  • Don't stalk him or phone or text him or his friends. Just leave it alone.
  • Don't expect miracles. Don't expect him to come back.
