    Yes. Neutrality is important because of personality traits that may have caused one to initiate the breakup in the first place! Though a person may have traits that are less than desirable, it is also not right to give them false hope. Thanks!

    I am sorry to hear that, Ryan. I am glad though, that it is ending amicably. I think, as you say, we should not assign blame even when philandering is involved because something must have driven them to that point! Thanks for sharing.

    Great advice! I would definitely advocate space. Because when lovers are 'just friends" things become awkward and emotionally confusing. Thanks for sharing!

    Isn't that the truth? It's (you) who wants to date/see other people. It's (you) that is not "in love". It's (you) that feels the relationship has run it course. If your mate has done nothing wrong why make it about them? You're being honest about it.

    I think it is important not to assign blame. When we do it makes the process even more hurtful! Thanks for sharing, Paula!

    Correct, not only does resentment breed bitterness, there are also things about yourself that lead to any break up and it wouldn't be fair to blame them.

    I agree, Jenna. Honesty is probably the best policy (within reason), but if one is certain that the relationship is over... then it is best to close the door completely, while leaving the wounded party with as much dignity as possible.
