If you're in an unhappy relationship that hasn't been working for some time and you've been thinking about breaking up, what was the point in which you decided you are actually going to do it? How long did it take you until you finally decided to have the final break up talk?

A friend of mine told me a while back that if you respect this person on a basic human level (even if you no longer love/want to be in a relationship with them) then they would probably prefer you break up with them, rather than stay in a relationship that you've long since abandoned from a romantic standpoint.
From then, it took me a week and I was out. I did it IN PERSON (see: basic human respect, above), went in with a plan and stuck to it.2

Umm I felt like no matter what I did it was never good enough for him. He was more then happy to linger around the mistakes I did, but didn't want any bit of it when something concerned me about him. I felt like I was jumping through hoops to satisfy he's needs. I apologised sincerely for things that made him upset. Things that made me worry sick about him in the first place, I had to apologise for.
I felt neglected (emotionally) from the relationship. I felt like the relationship aspect was no longer there. I was really unhappy. All I wanted was him to consider me in the situation. I just wanted him to be there for me emotionally like I was for him. He made it hard to want to reconcile. Once it was all about him, I just wanted to not be in it anymore. So I left1
