I know you hear man up all the time. But is it “B” move to end a relationship via text? Will the person feel like they were fired from work on their day off? Sometimes you have to do what you have to do. Get your 160 characters on. A well written text will get your message across but in the end this is very heartless and I do not agree with it at all.
You want her to get the message so this is not a time to spare feelings. You don’t have to be cut throat. It’s very easy to have your tone not understood when it is written rather than said. Let them know you’re serious. Do not use we “ we need to take a break.” when you know you want an end to the show not a commercial.
II. Only one convo
If you’re at the text message break up stage the relationship is irreparable. Once you’ve sent your message, and confirmed that they understand. It’s a wrap. Don’t get into a conversation.
III. No jokes
You’ve already made up your mind so don’t leave any unfinished issues out there. Shut the door and keep it moving.
IV. No communication
There should be no text responses in any way. Do not answer the phone. Not for at least a few weeks. It’s over means it’s over.
V. Don’t answer any revealing questions
They might try to come see you in person. Don’t disclose your location. If it’s on Facebook you need to turn it off ASAP.
VI. Social Media
Block them from seeing your comments and commenting on your Facebook wall. In fact you should just unfriend them and save time. Block them on Twitter so they do not start tweeting and replying to all your tweets.
