You need to prepare a presentation on things they could have done better in the relationship. Help them point out their flaws and mistakes. This way, you won’t be hurting your feelings or theirs, you’ll be helping them become a better person. Don’t forget to send this presentation via email.

3. Beat around the bush before breaking up with them.

Breaking up in a very straightforward way is very hurtful and unfair. You need to beat around the bush so you have enough time to process what is going on. It also helps them move on quickly. This is one of the easiest ways to break up without hurting your feelings.

4. Do not deliver the news face-to-face.

Send the breakup message via mail, or preferably via pigeons. Do not break up with anyone face to face. You don’t want to look at them while you point out what they could have done better or how they could have saved the relationship.

5. Use ‘you’ in your statements.

“You did, you said, you should have”… Let them know the relationship ended because of them. This way they’ll know it’s not you, it’s them. After all, the intention is to break up without hurting your feelings. We aren’t saying you should hurt their’s instead sha.

6. Do not grant their request for closure.

What sort of closure are they looking for that they can’t get on Ali express?. If they need closure so much, they should buy it on Instagram. You can also have it delivered to them if you are feeling extra kind. Giving them closure is a way of you exposing yourself to getting hurt and you don’t want to do that.
