Keep the communication light
Breaking up is always hard to do, whether it’s a long distance relationship or someone you get to see every day at work. Get off to a better foot by keeping the communication light and highlighting the benefits of breaking it off with each other. This could help you both concentrate better in the workplace. Whatever the reasons may be for waving the white flag, communicate this with your colleague and let them know of your intentions are to do what’s best for you both.
