Re: How To End A Relationship?

You can also add on a note that girls like to hear, you're both still young and deserve to see the world and try different things, and if the destiny wants it, you'll end up being together in the future.

Don't forget to alarm your buddies there's a spare new hole on the market looking for consolation.

I will burn
And you will die...

Though I'm not speaking from experience so I'm probably the last one who should give advice. But since it's you Jase I thought I'd give it a try.

This is the right solution, but likely to get you a nice slap.

Oh and the OP never said the other person was a girl.

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Re: How To End A Relationship?

What Jase? What was retarded about my post? That was supposed to be my serious post. Here's the retarded one:

Print these and stick them on her bathroom mirror.

Leave the sarcasm out, take the serious piece of advice: tell her straight up. I've been in your position (having to leave somebody) and hers (being left by somebody), and in both cases and for both persons being blunt is the best (albeit not easiest) way to go.

Re: How To End A Relationship?

Just tell her the truth, that you're not ready to commit to one person.

Thank you for not reporting my post.

You should lie, to put it simply. Just let her down gently. The last thing someone wants to hear is that they are being dumped for someone else. No one likes being made to feel inferior. Think of a way to end it without bruising her ego.

Re: How To End A Relationship?

I don't understand why anybody thinks that being honest is the best way to go. Who exactly does that benefit?

Not necessarily. Depends on the circumstances. If you plan on banging your new chick in plain view of your old flame, you might as well be honest. If you have a shot at keeping it quiet, spare her ego.

I can handle ego bruising quite easily. That's why I always follow the safe, easy path of brutal honesty without feeling under direct attack.

Plus, I could never tell a lie convincingly, or hide the truth.

They probably have mutual friends who will talk, especially when it stirs some drama. Ex-girlfriends are crazy, someone will snitch on him, drama ensured.

Most people don't take rejection as well as you do. I don't see how honesty benefits anyone. I think it's safer to spare someone's ego/feelings, unless you have no other option.
