3. The right word to use (how to start)

2. Choose a Venue:

Another thing to do while considering ending your relationship is to choose a proper place where you can tell your partner that you don’t want the relationship anymore.

It is not advisable to stay in a lonely or secret place. For instance, your Room, his/her Room, your friend’s place etc.

Choose an open place like Restaurant, Bar, etc. The reason why I suggest these two places is that, it will be very easy for people to see the both of you.

Some girls are been raped on the process of trying to tell their boyfriend or partner that they are no longer interested in the relationship. Some of them where even killed on the process.

So it is advisable to stay in an open place and discuss the breakup.

Don’t be afraid to say your mind. Tell your partner your intention. Make him/her realize that you are no longer enjoying the relationship.

For that reason, you want to disolve the relationship. The truth is that you have the power to quit your relationship anytime you wish to.

While making your plan known to him/her, do it in a polite manner.

Respect yourself first and your partner. Don’t see it as an opportunity to insult him/her.

It is not the proper way of ending a relationship. The best way to break up with your without hurting their feelings is to be polite.

Tell your partner why you think the relationship should be over. It will help him/her realize his/her mistakes and work on them.

Having told your partner that you are no longer interested in the relationship, what do you do next?

The next thing to do is to move on with your life.

Stick to your decision and don’t look back. Don’t try to be a nice person by checking on them (calling your partner after breaking up).

The relationship is over. Therefore, move on with your life. Stop looking for some signs he/she will return to you. It is time to focus on your carrier. Focus on building yourself in other to become a better person.

Take this period (now you’re single) to focus on how to develop yourself.

Why did you quit your past relationship? Is it your fault or your partner’s own. Why not use this period to improve yourself to avoid facing the same problem in your new relationship?.

Most people are victim of this. Immediately their relationship is over, they start saying all sought of bad things about their partner. It is very bad. You have to stop it.

That you broke up with your partner does not mean he/she is now your enemy. So, avoid doing anything that will tarnish his/her reputation.
