Best way to end dating
We know that there is no good time to end a relationship, and sitting on your decision for too long also isn’t a good idea. Of course, these elements depend on how long you’ve been seeing someone.
But by throwing your announcement into the mix at moment of high stress, your partner’s reaction will be ten times more extreme than if you wait for a calmer moment. If your ‘relationship’ is just a few dates old, and you’ve barely spoken on the phone, then you might feel it’s better for you to let them down by text or email.
This isn’t The Bachelor; this is real life, you might think. As Ellie Krupnick suggests at mic, all you need is one simple, formulaic text that will take you approximately three seconds out of your crazy hectic life to send.
I mean, you’re right about The Bachelor not being real life.
However, if you’ve been together for months or years, any kind of written communication is cowardly.
It doesn’t allow for your partner to ask you all the questions they’ll have, or let you know how they feel about your decision.
Of course if there are children involved, or other dependants, this isn’t realistic.
In these cases, be as amicable as possible, without using the children as reasons to see each other.
