Tips to Help You Out When You're Ending a Relationship

Although it is no fun having someone break up with you, ending a relationship with someone else is just as hard.

It's pretty tough to know you are going to hurt someone, but there are times when it's the right thing to do.

While there really isn't an easy way that you can do this, there are definitely things you can do to make sure you go about ending it in a way that is gracious and kind to the other person.

Not sure how to do this difficult task? Here are some tips to help you out when you have to put an end to a relationship.

Make Sure It's The Right Choice

If you are planning on ending a relationship, the first thing is to make sure that this is the right choice.

Often relationships go through good times and bad times, so you want to make sure that totally ending this relationship is going to be the best option for you.

There may be cases where you want to save the relationship. If you think there is a chance to salvage the relationship, then think twice before you end it.

Go Somewhere Neutral

If you do decide that the right thing to do is to end the relationship, it is a good idea to go somewhere neutral to do this.

You should go about ending relationships somewhere that has been special to the two of you, or wherever you both feel is the right place.

Doing it in your homes may or may not be the best choice. It is good to go somewhere that is not only neutral, but pretty private as well.

The last thing you want is a big scene or to embarrass the other person in front of a lot of other people.


When ending a relationship, make sure you keep it kind. You should not be mean or hateful when you are doing this, but on the other hand, you can't give in.

The other person may beg you not to break up with him or her. Don't give in and don't let him or her think that there is hope either.

This is important so that you don't go on hurting the person after you end it. Be very firm, but be gentle too. It's a delicate situation and requires a bit of finesse.

Ending relationships is never fun, but with these tips, you can do it the right way. Although the other person is sure to go through some pain, just as you will, you can minimize the pain for both of you making the end a little bit easier.
