Wow, that is difficult. I believe if you want to end a friendship it is because it is not a real friendship. Who would want to end something so valuable as a relationship with a friend? You need to evaluate what is going wrong. If the person you think it is your friend and she or he is taking advantage of you certainly he or she is not your truly friend and the best thing to do is just to say the truth and how you feel and say that you do not think it is a positive friendship . If you think the person does not want to call you, to go out with you, there are reasons for it, sometimes you are too weird, I do not know. Maybe you are single and the person is married and does not have the same time she/he had before to give you attention or just had a baby. Think about the circumstances and evaluate the problem, I am sure you are smart and you will come up with a solution. Remember, there are friends more close than a brother or sister!
I apreciate what Paula 10 has sugested.
If you still find it difficult to continue friendship with that person, it is better to start ignoring him/her by avoiding his/her calls, mails, texts etc. It may develop a distance between you two, and we know that "Distance kills love" let alone frendship.
Start by saying all the positive things that person does, all the things you like about them, the nice things that happened in the relationship which you enjoyed and finally drop the bomb gently.
I hope our friendship will never end Hubpages.
First i would like to suggest that try not to do so coz True friendship is like sound health; the value of it is seldom known until it be lost. If you have decieded to end it means that was not true Friendship. Anyways to end friendship i think you should clear your side all time. Tell your friend where he or she is lackig to continue this relationship. Keep on telling him or her that you are not able to be anyones friend. Keep on telling that i dont think that i should be in your touch. And finally break the contact.
Well I don.t think that to end friendship is the right option for any one. I'm not in favor to "END FRIENDSHIP" at any cost.
Friends are one that we make by our wish but to end it in between is not the rite option. I would prefer that both of the friends should sit face to face and sort out the matter. Sharing my personal experience I have done the same thing and sort out the matter by sitting face to face that why there is so much difference now days.
In friendship there should be no ego and no attitude.
"If you really want to end friendship then simply avoid him/her by giving less response to what he /she said but don't hurt him/her so much that would result in some negative result."
pooja0908 never ever say this thing to your friend that "you are not able to be anyones friend" because the person is not good to you but for some other person he/she is someone life....!!
Why would any one want to end a friendship unless it was one way sort of relationship. I mean like i consider somebody as my friend but he isn't . He merely used me for what ever purpose or reason..in that case it is easy to end the friendship. isn't it?
If there is genuine friendship which has undergone some misunderstanding then it can be worked out. True friends are rare and one must cherish them instead of trying to break apart..
Are you sure you wanna end friendship???
If you were sincere ever in that relationship please don't end it. Because it hurts a lot. End it if and only if both of you believe that you don't wanna continue the relationship. Other wise ending a genuine friendship for no reason is like killing a soul. There may be only some misunderstandings that can be easily cleared through an open talk. Or if you are sure you can't adjust anymore, just keep ignoring. And once he/she really understand your feelings he/she will go away from you with pain for your happiness if he/she is a real friend. Then keep in mind that you are gonna miss such a good friend and genuine friendship is the best relationship in this world.
Just become aloof and break the contact.
If that person forces you to talk to him/her, then tell that person directly that you don't want to keep the friendship.
But make sure that you tell that person the true reasons behind it.
