Do you need a reason to break up with someone?

I'm no longer happy in my relationship, is that reason enough to break up with someone? It's not anything he's doing wrong or me, but I just don't feel the same about him anymore

  • If you want out of the relationship, that's a reason right there.
    He doesn't need to lie/cheat on you/hurt you or do something else you don't approve of. If you don't feel the same anymore, and don't see yourself in the future with him, it's ok to break up. And generally, once you start feeling this way, you can hardly go back.
    Besides, would you want someone being in a relationship with you and feeling this way about it? No. Break up may hurt your boyfriend right now, but in the long run, it's better for him as well.

  • You have a reason: "I just don't feel the same about him anymore" that's a perfectly acceptable reason if you are just dating someone (married/kids: I would think you'd want to give it a serious try with therapy ect).

    • Nope not married, dating for about a year and a half now. After the one year mark, things just feel different to me

  • But if you have reason to be in a relationship then we need a reason for break up too..

    • But isn't not feeling happy and complete and excited reason enough to not be in the relationship?

    • Show All
    • That's what I feel like I should do too. But at the same time, I don't want to drag it on either you know?

    • If you feel there is no more adventure or life , you can move away but you must convince him like good girl about your intentions..

  • A reason will help him have some closure, but no, you don't need a reason if you're just not feeling the relationship.

  • You don't need a reason but he will want a reason and you would want one too if he was dumping you.

  • Are you married before God? Then you will be married for the rest of your life, suck it up.
    Are you not married? Buy a karma sutra book and try new stuff. Just because you are bored, is not a good reason to break up. That is why relationships should be based on friendship, after the honeymoon period it gets old and becomes every day life.

  • The person you are in a relationship with does have a right to know why he's being dumped. No longer being happy in the relationship is def a legit reason to end it.

  • I just broke up with my boyfriend mainly because I was never happy. I know it was the right thing to do because I don't feel upset about it. There's no point in bein in a relationship that your not happy in.

    • I agree, I just feel bad because there really isn't a reason other then I'm not happy or excited or anything anymore

    • How long are you with him & how long have u been feelin this way? I had been like this for a long time and it began to show and i felt bad but you can't help the way u feel!

    • About a year and a half. I started feeling differently about him after the one year mark. I really want to make it work but how can I when I can't pinpoint the exact reasons why my feelings changed?
