I often receive messages from my friends that they are sick of the casual relationship they are in and are desperate to end it. However, they don’t know how to deal with it properly. Meanwhile, there are also many friends who say they regret that they did not deal with it well when they broke up with their casual partners. As a result, the other one was very painful, and they felt very guilty. At the same time, many friends are hoping to break up with their partners, but they don't know what methods should be used to reduce the harm to each other. Then how do you break up with someone without hurting him/her? Today, let's talk about the best way to end a casual relationship.

Before Breaking up, Ask Yourself Some Questions

Before saying goodbye, you would better assess the relationship:

Am I happy in this casual relationship?

Do we grow up in our relationship?

Does my partner make me better, or weaken me?

If I break up, will I be more painful than I am now?

If I have a child, will I let him stay in such a relationship?

If you answered more than one "no" to the above questions, maybe you can consider breaking up.

Once You Decide to Break up, Be Brave and Determined

People tend to avoid breaking up because of guilt or refusal of conflicts. Your avoidance and procrastination are a waste of time for both of you. Your hesitation will not only make yourself painful, but also prevent the other one from finding a more suitable one. Moreover, people have the right to express their true feelings. If you are dissatisfied, you can point it out. Maybe the other person will be painful at first, but he/she will finally move on soon or later. There is an old saying in Chinese, “Better a little loss than a long sorrow.”

During the Breakup: Be Friendly, Frank and Sincere

The most compassionate and respectful way to end a casual relationship is to meet face to face. Although the delivery of text messages is quick, it may hurt the other party's feelings. While proposing to break up, you can speak out your reasons calmly and sincerely, and avoid communicating in a negative tone. No matter how he/she reacts, you should try to be friendly.
