  • I hate breaking up with someone. Makes me feel horrible. And hey, if they break up with me, they can only regret it down the road. But either way, I'd rather feel the pain than to bring it upon someone else

  • If a break-up occurs it is because something in a relation did not work out the way it should have.

    I would rather break up the relation myself because if such a measure is necessary, that would mean that I have an excellent reason to do it.

    I would never break up a relation without a very valid reason. In this featured case, that would mean that my partner was unfaithful at worse or acted in such a way that was no longer possible for me to keep the relation intact.

    And since to me, being open and talking with my partner is of utmost importance, I can only assume that I was not up to what was expected of me for my partner to find elsewhere what I could not give. I would certainly not be unfaithful because when I go into a relation, then I expect it to last a life long.

    But then, if I have to give my partner the boot, then it is because I have also failed in my commitment and given the person a reason to find another individual that has something to offer that I cannot or not willing to give.

  • Me and my partner recently split and I’ve been miserable if I’m honest, she did the splitting up and I agreed so we were on the same page, but if I’d done the talking / breaking up I’d regret it a lot so it was better coming from her, it meant I could start grieving for the relationship because I wasn’t torn about a decision I didn’t wholly make. My partner before that I broke up with, years later I saw her and had a coffee and only then did I really feel confirmation I’d made the right decision, which is weird because I thought I already had but emotions and brains work in funny ways I guess. Overall I think for me it’d depend on the relationship and the actual person I’m with, I was truly in love with my recent partner and from her was better, the time before was in love with me and I wasn’t on the same page so it was better for me to do it I think. Hope that made sense 🙂

  • Be broken up with. It feels terrible of course, but it's still probably easier than the other way round, when you are plagued by your consciousness and always ask yourself if you did the right thing... :(

  • I have broken up with pretty much all my boyfriends, one guy would fade me out and wait for me to contact him as end it. But come back when I now believe it didn't work out elsewhere sooo... I prefer this type of man to end things, shows me he has some respect for me and he actually has a backbone.

  • Although both do definetely suck, I would prefer to be broken up with. This way I can deal with being lovesick without also feeling regrets of hurting someone and asking myself if I did the right thing.

  • If it has to happen as it did with me and my boyfriend of 2 years, it's best to decide mutually, that way it's amicable and you both walk away not hating each other.

  • Break up with someone. Getting hurt is garbage.

    At least it hurts less than getting broken up with. You feel less powerless.
