How to Break Up with your Partner Respectfully

Here are some examples of what you might say. Use these ideas and modify them to fit your situation and style:

  1. Tell your BF or GF that you want to talk about something important.
  2. Start by mentioning something you like or value about the other person.
    For example: “We’ve been close for a long time, and you’re important to me.”
    Or: “I really like you and I’m glad we’ve gotten to know each other.”
  3. Say what’s not working (your reason for the break-up).
    For example: “But I’m not ready to have a serious boyfriend right now.”
    Or: “But you cheated on me, and I can’t accept that.”
    Or: “But we’re arguing more than we’re having fun.”
    Or: “But it just doesn’t feel right anymore.”
    Or: “But there’s someone else.”
  4. Say you want to break up.
    For example: “So, I want to break up.”
    Or: “So I want us to be friends, but not go out.”
    Or: “So I want to stay friendly, but I don’t want to be your BF/GF anymore.”
  5. Say you’re sorry if this hurts.
    For example: “I don’t want to hurt you.”
    Or: “I’m sorry if this isn’t the way you wanted things to be.”
    Or: “I’m sorry if this hurts you.”
    Or: “I know this is hard to hear.”
  6. Say something kind or positive.
    For example: “I know you’ll be OK.”
    Or: “I know we’ll always care about each other.”
    Or: “I’ll always remember the good times we had.”
    Or: “I’ll always be glad I got to know you.”
    Or: “I know there’s another girl/guy who will be happy to have a chance to go out with you.”
  7. Listen to what the other person wants to say. Be patient, and don’t be surprised if the other person acts upset or unhappy with what you’ve said.
  8. Give the person space. Consider following up with a friendly message or conversation that lets your ex know you care about how s/he is doing.

Relationships Help Us Learn

Whether they last a long time or a short time, relationships can have special meaning and value. Each relationship can teach us something about ourselves, another person, and what we want and need in a future partner. It’s a chance for us to learn to care about another person and to experience being cared about.

A break-up is an opportunity to learn, too. It’s not easy. But it’s a chance to do your best to respect another person’s feelings. Ending a relationship — as hard as it is — builds our skills when it comes to being honest and kind during difficult conversations.
