How can one break up with a girlfriend without hurting her feelings?
Forget about that! Anyone who is rejected or dumped will have hurt feelings.
The first thing you need to do is some serious introspective thinking as well as reflecting on the relationship in order to determine if you genuinely are ready to call it quits for good. Begin to list the pros and cons for staying in the relationship. The goal is to get everything in black and white. This will also help determine the reasons why you want to end the relationship. Be honest with yourself.
Breakups are done at the comfort level of the person ending the relationship. You must also take into account the individual’s temperament and the type of relationship you have had as well as it's length. If you have personally witnessed this person put their fist through a wall, throw furniture, or yell like a maniac when things did not go their way; it’s probably not a good idea to breakup in person. Your safety comes first.
Always do it at there place for two reasons. 1. You are free to exit after you've said what needs to be said instead of trying to figure out a way to get them to leave. 2. Odds are if they're not expecting this whatsoever you don't want to put them in a position to have to drive somewhere after being shocked.
Keep the conversation short and to the point. “I’ve given this a lot of thought and I have reached the conclusion that I need to end our relationship.” Expect to be asked (Why?) however keep in mind there is no answer you can give that will put a smile on their face or cause them to feel you are making the “right” decision.
The only answer to the (why) question is, “I’m not happy being in this relationship and I understand you are not responsible for my happiness. That is completely up to me.”
Don’t get sucked into a “blame game” or heated argument. The goal of your soon to be ex is to get you to list “reasons” which they'll try to convince you they can change or address. If you have sincerely made up your mind the relationship is over then it’s cruel to allow them to beg, plead, or lose their dignity.
Move On and Allow Them to Get Over You
Do not offer “instant friendship” as a consolation prize! This tactic simply raises false hope for your ex that if they remain in your life there is a “chance” they can win you back overtime. You are the last person who can help someone get over you! Remove yourself from their world as much as possible. The best friendships between exes usually occur after there has been a major gap in time.
Its not an easy way, to break up with our girlfriend, with out hurting her. Because, It depends up on the situations, we have been facing, that made us, to break our relationship.
Because, Love is not a thing to happen, But a sudden feeling to express our interest and importance towards a special person. But, girls used to more sensitive than boys, So, We are unable to expect their reactions, when we try to break it up.
