Be honest and up front so not to leave an opening for your ex to come back looking for answers.

2. Timing: Choose a mellow setting where you won’t be disturbed to have your say. Bad choices include at a party, in a disco, or in the car. Spare a thought for the injured person to-be and avoid these places, and also avoid alcohol. Being sozzled will give you dutch courage, which is not a good idea. Alcohol can give cause for an aggressive reaction as opposed to a tearful one, so no dumping in the pub to avoid broken bones.

3. Dump in public: It’ll help if people are close by because your boyfriend or girlfriend may be less likely to go off on one, and cause chaos. Being around others will give you confidence to follow through with the break up. If you’re alone you are under threat of caving in and backing out of going through with ending the relationship. Go to a cafe or library where you can up and leave if things get nasty, rather than wait for this person to go.

4. Face to face: Never have someone or something act on your behalf. No one deserves to be finished with by text, email, or by telephone.

5. Be certain: Having mixed feelings about splitting up can mess with your heart and your partners too and they’ll sense this. Not knowing what you want at the time of talking about going separate ways isn’t fair on your partner, and will cause unnecessary heartache, leaving them thinking there is still hope. Be sure and make it clear that your decision to move on is final.

Tips: If you still want to be friends speak with a soft tongue before that of a forked one when ending the relationship. Don’t give cause for bawling and shouting. Keep your voice low and be civil during the initial break-up. Avoid name-calling and swearing. Make out even if not fully true that splitting up is the end of something special.
