I try to be considered. I once waited breaking up with someone until her school exams were over.
In case of a birthday would wait unless there is another event coming after that prolongs it even further. And if there was none I would probably get to hear something like "How could you break up with me so soon after my birthday?" In the end there is no good time to tell this
Depends on why I'm breaking up with her. If she treated me like shit, or cheated on me, then I'd probably do it on their birthday because fuck them. But if things just weren't working out, I'd try to hold on until after their birthday for at least a couple weeks to a month.
Na. Wait until that very morning. Give him his last pity fuck then dump his sorry ass and hope it never happens to you and you don't have to get over such a tough thing.
One thing is , he won't every in his lifetime forget who you were.
All depends on how he treated you while in the relationship. If it was a lesson he very well needed to learn so he didn't hurt another girl or end up on the Maury show then go for it. Give karma a head start.
If you fall out of love, you would do that eventually, regardless of what date. Guys who have absolutely no clues will think, ''what the heck... why did she dump me? I thought everything was going right?''
That would be horrible. But at the same time, I would not want someone harboring a breakup and just going along with a celebration all the while knowing he was going to break it off days later... that would probably hurt more than being broken up with before a birthday.
There's no such thing as a good time to break up with him. If he somehow suspects you just waited because of his birthday, he might feel betrayal on top of the hurt and rejection. (That week of relationship will have been a farce.)
Honestly, yes, because I think it would be worse to hold off on your feelings for yourself and for your s/o.
I'm really bad at hiding my feelings, and I feel like it would come off in some way (body language, reactions, etc) if I was around that person and was harbouring some ill feelings towards the relationship. And I know if your s/o found out that you were hiding this from them/pretending to be copacetic with the state of the relationship, they probably would feel wronged by it in some way too.
