How To Break Up With A Girl

Whether it’s a longterm girlfriend, a woman you’ve just started dating, or even a f-buddy, not being an idiot about it will save both of you lots of trouble.

How To Break Up With A Woman

If you’re ready to call it quits with your girlfriend or even one of your friends with benefits, you’ll save both of you a lot of trouble if you know what you’re doing. The thing is, most guys have no idea what they’re doing when it comes time to break up with a girl. And so I, as a woman with plenty of experience in both aforementioned relationship roles, am going to share the break-up techniques that result in the fewest number of hard feelings, public outbursts, and restraining orders.

How To Break Up With a Girl - emailMethod: Sending her an email
Appropriate For: A woman you’ve been dating for no more than a few weeks

According to relationship expert and psychologist Megan Fleming, the email should contain two passages: One that thanks her for the time you’ve spent together and the opportunity to get to know her. And another that mentions something non-physical that you like about her. Fill out the rest with how you’re not ready for a serious relationship and send it off. That way when she forwards it to her friends — and she will — they’ll respond with something like, “Well, you don’t want to be with a guy who’s allergic to relationships anyway, so this is for the best!”

Daniel Ioffe (Wed, 07 Mar 2012 23:27:59 +0000): For all you guys that are broken hearted this is the guide to the perfect break... Written by Mr. Vazquez Perfect Break Up: Over Text. I hate the fact that I have to see you slip away, this easily. I hate the fact that you would walk away from me without trying to change my mind, but mainly I hate the fact that it had to end like this, with so much unsaid but I guess I'm just going to have to get used to not looking at you the same way I did. You weren't ready and I don't blame you. I still have a lot to learn and so do you, I'm really going to miss you. I won't hold a grudge against you, I never meant to get so attached to you, I never wanted to hurt you I was just helping you see your mistakes. I'm sorry I let this go on for so long. In my mind you were the right one but I wasn't. You want to be single and talk to a lot of guys, you want to have fun. I want someone to stick with but not in the sense of clinginess, I want someone that won't be afraid to show me they like me in front of their friends, I want someone that won't have to think twice about her feelings toward me. I want someone that will fall head over heals for me without being scared that I'd cheat or hurt her. I want someone that will admit to making mistakes and try to better themselves. I'm sorry for overreacting sometimes, I was so afraid to lose you to somebody else. I'm sorry if I asked for more than you could give. I'm sorry for not accepting you for who you are, sorry for trying to change you. It'll be a struggle to get over you and yeah, I'll regret letting you go and not fighting for you but I've done enough of that and you never put an effort into getting me back. That hurt, because you made it seem like I meant so much to you when it really wasn't that big of a deal. You had a small crush on me, I was ready to do anything to get you back. I got my hopes up so high! You'll think of me as a player, liar, and so much more. And I wish it wasn't like that but I can't change anything about the way you think of me. I'll remember you as one of the sweetest girls I've ever met, you made me smile, you made me mad, you made my stomach drop, I just realized how much I'm going to miss you.(put in amazing memorize you had with her). Memories are the only things that never change when everything around us does and I might forget what you said, but I'll never forget how you made me feel. I don't blame you for getting hurt because I took the risk and decided who was worth the while. After all, I'm not so sad about this. I'm glad that for once in my life you made me the happiest I could ever be and put colors in my life even if it was just for a while. You're such an interesting person, you're so funny, cute, and beautiful. I'm going to miss you so much. Maybe, you'll never open up to me and make me realize how you made me feel, and I won't realize how much shit I've put you through. I seriously don't know if I'm hurting you, you're such a strong-willed person but speaking up and showing your emotions would be so much easier. I just wanted to know you cared enough to show me in person not in text like always. I'm sorry we can't be friends. I can't go from pouring out my feelings to you and liking you so much to just plain old friends, I just can't because then I'll never move on. Maybe someday when this is all over and I've moved on, we can be friends. You don't know what I'm feeling right now. It's not easy to let go but I know it's time to stop trying and move on. But you know what they say: Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.
