Relationships are wonderful to be in, in the beginning. You,sweethearts, can't get enough of each other. Your love, whoozes from every pore in your body, but then "sweet nothings" turn into just "nothings." How do you end your relationship that has no future? Would you cheat (hoping to be caught) with someone else before ending the present relationship, would you constantly fight (verbally and physically) until one of you says, "I quit?" Or would you calmly sit down like ration people and agree that the relationship is dead, and you each should go your seperate way? I did the latter.

I say I am leaving a couple times a month but it doesn't happen. I dont like to be confronted so my escape is just to leave. But when it's for real, I know with my husband I told him it wasn't working and I didn't want to be with him anymore. He took it good at first. He did move out but then that's when the trouble started. We are back together now but it might have to come down to that again and it's not easier the second time around. it's harder.

i think the latter is the best option, the others seem far too aggressive for me, could seriously upset your partner.
