How do you make a guy break up with you?
The question itself shows immaturity and possibly a willingness
to play games. It is fundamentally dishonest and disrespectful to
deliberately do things to "drive the person away" or get them to
"take the hint." If you want to break up, just be direct and
honest: tell the person that you don't want to date anymore. It is
fundamentally dishonest and disrespectful to deliberately do things
to "drive the person away", while they really don't know what's
going on or what you're up to. That treats them like a fool and you
have no right to do that. I've broken up with someone I loved, been
broken up with by someone I was starting to love, and been in a
relationship that we mutually ended. In every case, we were honest
and direct, and we're both glad we were. That avoids more hurt
feelings and wasted time, as well. --------- I kept in touch with
one woman -- very hard, I don't think it works for most people
after an intense relationship, but this time it was manageable. We
still love each other and are close friends. We don't see each
other much at all, and it's probably good that we live far apart.
But we talk occasionally and e-mail regularly. One reason that we
remember our time together so fondly, and still trust each other,
is that we never lied to each other or played games like "making
him/her want to break up with me."
