Breakups

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."
