There are SO MANY ways to break up with someone, it can get weird sometimes. PEOPLE can get weird sometimes.

    Several times I’ve waited (much) too long to break off a relationship that I didn’t feel was going anywhere. Eventually the other person figures out you don’t feel the same way they do, and haven’t for rather a while – people get upset.

    …I’m trying to improve in the art of breaking things off tactfully and at the appropriate time.

    It’s quie sad that people do that in real life, and even more sad that it is supposedly acceptable behaviour. Yeah, love hurts and truth hurts and breaking up is hard to do, but if you have any respect for the other person (not to mention yourself), don’t they deserve honesty, and not sweet little lies?

    (Abusive realtionships is quite a different story, of course – it should go without saying, really, that if you are in danger virtually anything goes.)

    And Dmitri is probably the last guy you would ever need to pull that trick on.

    I can’t criticize a working disassociation tactic. If it works and no hard feelings, all the better.

    I’m continually surprised by people who are so certain ‘honesty is the best policy’ to end it with someone. I can only presume they tried it and figured they had somehow not done it right. They have no idea they’re heartaches waiting to happen to someone else. Of course I avoid entanglements with such persons.

    Except once. My fault for not discouraging her, I’m afraid. But she was persistent and seemed sincere. Should have paid better attention. Won’t make that mistake again.
