Breaking up with your boyfriend can be one of the hardest things you have to do. A break-up should be considered an ultimate form of confrontation, and many of us do not do well in that area. Keep in mind there are many different routes you can take to break up with your boyfriend, but if you want what's best for the two of you, be mature about it. This guide will help you break up with your boyfriend sensibly and smoothly.
Think it over. Weigh the pros and cons of the situation. When you come face to face with your boyfriend, you need to be prepared for what you are going to say to him. Consider his reaction to the news and what he might say.
Meet with your boyfriend in person. Make sure the location where the break-up is going to take place is in a comfortable setting for the both of you. This will ease nerves and help make it easier to talk.
Let your boyfriend know you have something important to say once you meet. Make it clear that he needs to listen.
State your opinion on why you want to break up. This is the most important step. Your boyfriend needs to hear very clearly why you want to break up with him. Speak in well-thought out sentences. You need to show that you know exactly what you want so he won't doubt your thinking.
Ask how he feels about the situation. Keep an open mind to his opinions, but don't lose sight of your own argument. Even though you are breaking up with him, his opinion still counts.
Hold your ground. Once you have broken up, never go back to that relationship. Remember, you broke up with your boyfriend for a reason, so don't forget it. Don't be convinced that your boyfriend has changed in such a short period of time, because chances are, he hasn't.
