For the past two months I have been trying to break up with my boyfriend, he is in california due to work and I can not visit him cause of work. So there have been a couple of times where I tell him that I want to break up because I can not do the long distance relationship, but he is like no no I will not give up on us. I just dont know how to tell him its the end and that is it with out him sweet talking to me telling me no and stuff. Any suggestions?

i experienced this kind of scenario before the only difference is that we were not living so apart. it took me a hundred times to make him understand that i'm no longer happy with our relationship, unfortunately, he doesn't want us to put an end in our relationship. i ended up our communication and i just sent him a breaking up letter for him to be informed. it's quite childish but what he's doing of not setting me free for his satisfaction is a childish thing also....

Great question -and some people have made some fairly good comments (I'm not gonna be one of those). If distance is very important to you (and the person being there physically is just as important) - then there's nothing else to talk about. Just remember one thing about love - in order to truly love someone, you must know/learn how to love yourself.

First of all if you really love your boyfriend then where is the question of break up comes.If that boy is loyal to you then I think you should continue with this relation.And one more thing that I want to tell you from my personal experiance,is that,distances make a relation more strong.

I just want to ask one question - Do you really love this guy? If you do distance should not be a problem because love is not physical. IF you like his presence even when you talk to him then i think there is no point breaking up and then ending distressed! If you think otherwise you can very well break up. If you are very serious about it just be stern and tell him that you dont need him as he is not there when you need him.
