How to Dump Someone

If you ever don't like your girlfriend or your boyfriend anymore heres some tips for you to follow not to hurt his/her feelings.

Why do we do it?

Before you dish the marching orders, work out why you want to ditch them. First,make a list of the reasons. Being clear about why you want out makes it easier to explain.

If you tell them straight, you'll save a lot of time and stress. Fob them off with made-up excuses and they'll be harder to shake off.

Second, choose your time,pick the right time to do it and don't delay. If you string them along they'll be double-gutted when you do chuck them.

When you're washing your hands of a long-term love, try to be tactful. Don't dump them the day before an exam, or on their birthday - even if they've done something really naughty.

Third,pick the right place. It's not a great idea to do it at their house. If they get weepy you don't need a mouthful from their mum or dad.

If you think they'll lose it, choose a public place in case things get out of hand.

Parties, or places where your mates hang out, are not a good choice. It's not cool to embarrass your future ex - everyone will think you're out of order.

When you're ready...

When it's time to do the deed, follow these simple dumping rules:

* Keep the stress levels low. There's no need to be cruel but don't go too soft either.
* Be direct, diplomatic and sensitive.
* Avoid getting too personal. They'll remember your words for a long time...
* Don't let them talk you out of it. You've thought about this long and hard and you know it's the right thing to do.

Remember: They'll be happier in the long run - and you'll both be free to go after someone brand new!
