These 'Nice' Ways To Break Up With Someone Are Not For The Faint Of Heart

By

If you've ever been dumped then you know how terrible of a feeling it can be.  Your whole world just comes crashing down.  You have this ridiculous mix of self reflection, guilt, hatred, revenge and sadness all bottled into one.  Was it something you did.  Is it a personality flaw that you just can't make someone happy.  Are you a grotesque monster who is destined to be alone?  Until you come to your senses and know that its their loss and move on and be better for it.  (Right?!?)

But having to dump someone, which is usually not as heartbreaking, can provide its own set of emotional challenges. Is there any really nice way to tell someone, "Hey, I don't have an interest in pursuing a meaningful life with you anymore?" It's ROUGH.

Subtle.

Even more subtle.

At least they'll think they dodged a bullet.

What if they pick yes?!

Hey, life is short.

Classic.

"I want to cry, but, wow it's so pretty here!"

Of course, politics always finds a way of creeping in.

At least you can eat your sorrows away!

This...is a little dark.

And of course, you had someone in there with actually good advice.
