Not as bad as that thankfully but I have tried to make myself seem less attractive to someone I thought had strong feelings for me and I did not feel the same way (Yes I know very arrogant, sometimes I think I am a legend in my own mind) - Anyways it was a disaster, you just confuse things or hurt them or don't go far enough so I can only imagine it is a hundred times worse in a relationship therefore end it, be straight with them and explain your feelings. It will be painful but in time they will thank you for being honest and move on. By creating an elaborate escape plan that will probably fail creates an unholy mess and probably hurt feelings all round.

Nope. I don't emotionally manipulate people. I'm an adult who knows how to use her words to appropriately end things. It spares them the pain of having to go through the confusing and saddening trial of falling out of love with somebody you once deeply cared about.
