7 Ways to End Your Relationship as Peacefully as Possible

7. Respect & Honesty

Remind your partner that you’ll never forget the positive qualities in your relationship, but emphasize that you’re ready to move on with your life. If you leave a person with respect you will always have their respect. “Do for them as you would have them do for you” is a very good rule of thumb to guide you through an unpleasant and unhappy time.

It isn’t easy to tell someone to their face that you don’t want to be their partner any more. This is especially hard if you have been a couple for a very long time. This is where the honesty comes to play so that you leave the person with as much of their own self-respect as possible. Tell him why you need to move on and answer any questions he may throw at you as honestly as you can. Think about the times you were dumped for no reason. How did you feel? It probably frustrated you wondering why, when things appeared to be going so well, he decided to end it. Be fair and be honest with your man and give him a final taste of your class and respect to give yourself the highest chance of ending your relationship peacefully.
