    Breaking Up In The Digital Age

    I'm Breaking Up With You. Just saying those loaded words brings such weight down on you. It can be soul-crushing; doesn’t matter who’s doing the breaking up. Like most of you, I’ve been on both the receiving and delivering ends of this thorny dilemma. If you’re the one...

    No Woman; No Cry

    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...

    It's Hard To Do

    I am in the place of wanting to breakup, but every time I try to it just never happens. She drives me crazy. I ignore her phone calls. I am going to puke if I have to buy her one more meal.... and yet I am still with her. I don't know what is so hard about making yourself...

    So I broke up with my girlfriend two days ago,

    and I just feel like a ******* *******.. I broke up with her because we barely get to talk, especially because I'm really busy in school.. And I'm really stressed out about school to the point where I have problems sleeping at night. I really regret it though, but I'm guessing...

    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.

    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...

    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...
