My ex was extremely emotionally abusive as well as manipulative, and she would constantly break up with me, only to take me back right afterwards. Whenever I would try to leave her, she would guilt trip me by threatening to self harm or attempt suicide.
After about 5 months, I finally had enough of her bullshit and I broke up with her.
Hmm I told her I didn't want to be with her like that anymore. We weren't compatible on multiple levels but I'm always the person who tries to make things work. In the end I realized that you can't force two ends of the same magnet together because there will always be resistance.
I have always been the one ending things - never had my heart broken. In the last relationship things just were off for the last 6 months and neither of us were really feeling it anymore. We stopped listening to each other and trying to work things out, I was just the one to cut the cord.
I broke up with my first ex over text after finding out he cheated. I broke up with my second ex over text and in person because he was abusive. My last ex kind of did it in person and through text when he left me.
I am still in my first relationship. Though one day he tried to break up with me because I wa shaking to college and he was scared he would be holding me back (as he is younger). Though I convened him he wouldn't hurt me being with me and that I wanted him, so it all worked out. I've never had a long term break up I guess you could say then. I really can't see myself breaking up with me current boyfriend
