I Hate Breaking Up With People

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 214 People

    I told my parents I wanted to break up with my

    boyfriend. Didn't know it would be this hard, mostly because my parents are SO in love with him. Now I feel like I have to be with him just because I feel guilty. I wish I had a bit more support from my parents. It'd make things 10x easier.

    Should I Or Should I Not?

    I have been with this woman for almost two years. I love her but I am not in-love. I love her but I don't like her sometimes. She is so delicate, so sweet and lovable. But on the other hand she is too clingy, too sensitive, manipulative, shes always right and can be very annoying...

    I'm Afraid You Are Not The One For Me....

    I want to break up with a wonderful man. He is by all means a great catch for the right woman. The thing is, I don't think I'm the right woman for him nor him for me. We each have wonderful qualities individually, and we are quite good together. The problem is that I don't feel...

    I had to break up with my boyfriend today,

    and it wasn't necessarily easy. But then again, he did it to himself. If you can't take our relationship serious and start acting more mature, then I'm not continuing this relationship anymore. As much as it pains me, we must part, find new people. A long distance relationship...

    Broke Up With The "perfect" Guy

    I broke up with with a wonderful guy and feel so bad for hurting him and yet so relieved. I'm introverted, had moved to the city from my hometown two years ago and it was the happiest I have ever been; I relished the anonymity and freedom. We met and it was the first time I got...

    Breaking Up In The Digital Age

    I hate breaking up with people because I consider myself a nice guy. I feel like they will not like me anymore. Duh! I want them to be OK, but if the relationship is destructive then you are doing both of you a favor. I have almost given up on finding the right one. Maybe I will...
