Cupid’s Advice:

The saying, “breaking up is hard to do” isn’t a cliche for nothing. Things can get really tough when trying to end things with your partner, so check out some of these tips from Cupid if you’ve found yourself in the same spot:

1. Be honest: If you have specific reasons for breaking things off with your significant other, the least you can do is be honest with them. By giving them the true reasoning behind the break-up, they will at least be aware of what they did wrong so they can work on it in the future. Plus, it’ll help both of you by receiving closure.

2. Stay civil: If possible, try to keep the break-up as clean as possible. Things can get messy but at the end of the day, staying civil is the best way to go. By ending things on a positive note, there won’t be many issues after the break-up, and you two will be able to go your separate ways and begin to move forward.

3. Keep it friendly… but not too friendly: It’s okay if you two would like to stay friends after the break-up, but the key is time. Rushing into a friendship can make things complicated and messy, so be clear with your ex that you need some time to move on before getting back to normal.
