How to break up with someone without hurting them?

Both sides are ok and there's no "dirty laundry ", it's just not what it was.

  • It honestly can't be done. You can always say a cheesy line of "Its not you its me" lets be honest that never works.. Just have to say it for what it is and why it is. Being honest is better then trying to convince the person they did nothing wrong... Let them take something new to their next relationship

  • You can't hurt them. Not possible. Only their own thoughts about the experience/situation can cause them pain.

    • This is interesting point! Thank you 😊

    • You're welcome. With this in mind, just be gentle and honest. And be prepared for them too be hurt, but know that it's not your fault and all you can do is speak your heart.

  • I believe rule of thumb is to do it personally. Never over the phone or via text. It may be a good thing to be honest about the entire thing. Since finding out that you were dumped for a different reason can bring about some complicated situations...

    • That is also true! Lies are not cool, anyway. 😊 Thank you for your opinion 😊

    • You're welcome 😊

  • There's no way to do it without hurting someone if you both still care about each other however if you can come to terms with all of it it should make things easier I hope that makes sense

  • Just do it; dragging it out makes them less likely and/or less willing to accept it

  • I know someone who has been with somebody for maybe 4 years or 5, and at the end they agreed to end their relationship because both don't have feeling towards each other anymore

  • Tell them you want the relationship to be exactly how it is but without the romance. In other words, you just want to be friends with benefits

  • There is no real way to do that. The best thing to do is do it sooner than later. The longer u wait the more it will hurt

  • Breakups are never fun because it always falls to who messed up in the relationship.

    • Sometimes it's not about mess. You simply start to look at them like friends only and it's not how it should be.

  • If you break up with some one, and they are not heart broken they never really loved you.

  • Someone always ends up with some level of hurt so it’s impossible. I think the best way is to just talk and don’t let it turn into a blame game if they have a reaction to induce it.

  • There is no easy way to break up. If there was, I would keep the idea as a secret and sell it to anyone who needs it for a hefty price.
