What is a good way to end a relationship?
Hayley jumped right into this with the requirement to “try to do it in person”, unless of course you have only chatted online. It is very important to be clear and direct – as that is truly the kindest thing. If you are too wishy-washy then people will try to convince you differently or they may see hope in the relationship that is not there. Michael was quick to explain the guy’s perspective as they in particular either try to see the “chance” in a breakup, or they also think they need to be heroic and chase after women. The conclusion is to basically remove words like think or might and don’t give a reason or excuse – just try to make it short. Michael’s advice was to make the breakup relative to how long the relationship has lasted – the less time invested in the relationship the shorter the breakup.
