When you start feeling unloved in a relationship or the love starts fading with time, you know the relationship has run its course. However, most people are too afraid to end a relationship as they feel that in a way they will end up hurting their partner. You can drag a relationship, but if it is over then there is not much you can do. So, it is better that you find a way to break the news to your partner. It is important to find a way that is not brutal and offensive as that can leave your partner with lifelong pain. (Also read: What things you must change to get your dream relationship)
Don’t delay it
It is better to confront your feeling than leading your partner. When you are not honest with yourself you are not honest with your partner. It might be a long-term relationship, but if it is not working there is not much that you can do to fix it. So, don’t linger on and on, just do it.
A breakup is a harsh event. Even when the relationship has lost its appeal, a breakup is still painful. So, prepare yourself for the emotional outburst from your partner. It is possible that he or she might react in a very negative way, but that is perfectly natural. (Also read: What lessons one can learn from Virat and Anushka’s love story)
Pick a neutral setting
When you are thinking about breaking up, the setting too has an impact. So, it is better to pick a natural setting. Don’t go for a romantic setting as it makes the breakup appear more brutal. Also, avoid picking a place with memories.
Be gentle but firm
You should never be unnecessarily harsh towards your partner during a breakup. Try to keep your tone soft and kind but stay firm. Be direct with him or her, but don’t be offensive. Avoid pinpointing the negative traits of your partner.
End on a good note
Always aim for a good note to end the relationship. Make sure you don’t leave your former partner with harsh feelings. (Also read: What are the signs that your partner is lying to you)
