How do you tell someone you want to break up without hurting them? I feel that it's just not working out and I think it would be best to break it off but I don't want to hurt them, they have a lot going on right now and I don't want to make it worse. I really care about them and want to remain friends but I'm just not sure it's meant to be. I'm not sure what to do or how to deal with it. Why is life so hard? I wish it could be easier but it's not and it sucks. The thing is, she lives out of state and I don't know how we'd ever be able to see each other so I'm just not sure it will work out. My mom told me that long distance relationships don't work very well so I kind of feel like we should break up. I'm just not really sure what to do. Any advice, opinions, suggestions, etc.. are welcome. Thank you all in advance.
There are a lot of odds against long distance relationships, but that doesn't mean that they don't ever work out. If you're having second thoughts about this girl, it would only be fair to her that you break it off before things get more complicated. Break ups always hurt so there's nothing you can do about that. Just be kind. Tell her that you don't think you can handle being so far apart... Like I said, it's only fair to her.
Buddhists have a saying. Life is pain. They aren't saying that life is all bad; just that pain is part of it. The joy of love brings the pain of loss. To deny pain is to deny life. Yes, your breakup will be painful. A clean break is usually easiest. It seems cruel but sometimes you have to be cruel to be kind. A gradual or gentle breakup just prolongs the misery. Good luck!
well there is no real easy way to break up with someone it hurts all the same just b calm and hope that person is understanding
