All of us would have had our share of relationships and their problems. What are the things you would avoid saying when you have no choice but to break up with someone and why?

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!
Truth is, sometimes the other party wants to press the issue and demands to know the truth...the whole truth...and nothing but the truth. It is not so much they want to know the truth in as much as they want to be able to argue every point.
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!
Most romantic couples invest too much too soon. Many couples merge their bodies, spirits, and minds in a sexual union before the wedding bells chime; when they break up, they feel as though their spirit, mind, and bodies have been violated and abused
I totally agree. If I knew in the past what I know now...there would have been much less heartbreak.
Yes. it would be a lie...I don't think telling a person that would be the truth! Thanks for sharing!
Will come by the hub, Strictlydating!
Indeed. It is never wise to burn bridges.
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.
