Make it easy on them and go with D. All of the other options will just mess with them. Alex

I thought there were fifty ways? Best thing is to just do it. It is like pulling off a band aid. Do it quick and clean and then end it. No being friends. No "discussing" it later. Tell the truth. Just do it and move on. Be sure it is what you want though as there is no going back. God I wish I would have taken this advice a coupola times.

D all the way, with tact. Have some class and integrity.

I agree with D, just make it honest and don't do the "friends" thing.

B. It's good for your Ego!!! Naw, D is the honorable way to do it. Don't be friends.

Funny, but I went through this today. Option D is about the only way to go. She started the crying game, but they always do. It's the best choice for the long run though.

tell her you sobered up!

Option D. Then ask for a referral with one of her girlfriends!

Wooohooo, a topic I have a lot of experience in. OK here goes. 1) Do her 1 last time. 2) The following day tell her you want to break up. Prefferably in person(be man about it) Give all your reasons. Be honest. Why? cause you can use this opportunity for a return booty call if you are honest, tactfull, and nice about the break up. 3) Send flowers a month after just to say you are thinking of her and hope she is ok and have moved on. Again for future booty call when the dry season hits. 4) Number 3 opens up possibilities to her friends BTW. She will definitely tell her friends about this and you will come up as a mature, well round, got your shit together, guy. Much luck. And yes this does work for me. 100%

The best way is to convince her that its her idea, then let her do it. Trying to convice her that it's no one's fault and it just wasn't meant to be is tricky. Remember that if you screw her over, every woman you'll ever meet or know is going to know about it. And if you ever want to date again you'll pay. So at least don't do the chicken shit stuff like not returning calls, or trying to ditch her.

D-Come clean - you don't feel anything

I'd reword that a little to be, "you [i]no longer[/i] feel anything." Assuming it's true, it sounds much better. The way you have it worded, it sounds like you never did feel anything towards her and were just using her.z

D come clean Then sleep with their best friend or sister [8D] Ropes ps. I am still friends with most of my ex's I dont follow my own advice.

I agree with Cereal-Killer, make it her idea. Point out all your faults subtly and make her feel that she could do better. Don't ever try the let's just be friends crap, it don't work most of the time, you always feel awkward around them if they want to hang out as friends. Be honest. Be nice, but don't be a sucker. Ice

Don't forget the Seinfeld classic, "It's not you, it's me" line. It worked during my divorce because I didn't really want to tell my ex-wife I couldn't stand to live with her anymore. >gg<

Find something really really really stupid to get mad at them for *but make it believeable*, then blow it out of proportion and all at once yell out what she has done wrong in the relationship. Then make up, get some, then tell them it just wont work anymore. And her friends still love me :-), im going out with one of them this weekend.

Set it up so she walks in on you really going at it with her sister or her mom or both.
Link Posted: 11/2/2001 12:20:20 PM EST
You are breaking up with her because she lacks something you want. Start demanding that she becomes the woman you DO want: Call her at two in the morning and tell her to immediately come to your house wearing only a trenchcoat and garters. Tell her she needs to have all your laundry done by 4:00 pm the next day. And not too heavy on the starch! Tell her you want her to find a female friend to join you for a threesome. Go to dinner where YOU want to eat. Do things YOU want to do. You get the picture... One of two things will happen: 1) She'll tell you to go to hell, and you're off the hook for breaking up or 2) She'll accept your terms and you'll be happy, for a while at least. I know, eventually, you may grow tired of toying with her and might have to break up, but, then, option "D" will work fine. Have some fun first!

Make sure you really want to break up.. Being a woman, sometimes men can play games, where they want space, when they could have just asked for some, instead of dumping and them come back a few weeks later.. Emotional mind games aren't fun and women cannot stand the emotional roller coaster after awhile..

we should have some sort of breakup strategies development forum. Even though I never had a girlfriend, I think I'll go with the bandwagon and recommend D. Of course you can also use option H take a break with leniant terms.

You can always use the "you're a nice gal, but..." routine... It always worked for my ex'es! (of course they alway phrased it "your a nice guy, but...")
