If you are one of those individuals that decided to break up with someone to avoid giving gifts and holiday craze, stay classy! This is the type of behavior that gets filed as bad breakup etiquette.
A friend of mine was telling me that he doesn’t think there is such a thing as good etiquette when you are dumping someone. There is simply no good way of saying I don’t want to sleep with you anymore. Fair enough, but that doesn’t mean you get to act like a total jerk, either.
I’m beginning to wonder if the disappearing act is the nicest way to dump someone. Is it the lesser of all the evils? Perhaps, if you consider having an awkward conversation about why you aren’t going to work our gut wrenching torture. In comparison, fading away can look to be easiest, but not to the person who is left wondering what happened.
In your experiences, do you have good breakup etiquette? Can you outright tell someone that they aren’t the one? When things start to go south, why does it take people so long to speak up and admit it to each other?
A strange question, but what is the best breakup you’ve ever had? How many of your exes do you still respect and love? What do you think prevented your breakup from becoming a bad episode of Cheaters?
