Say he/her in a positive manner that if we continue together we must hate each other. For our good relations as it was we must leave each other.

I will just say it directly at the right time. But before doing that I will have to make him feel it so he will be prepared when I say it. I will set a meeting with him a week before so he could at least prepare himself when I break the news.

I am not sure there is ever an easy way to end a relationship. But if you are not happy in this relationship you definitely need to end it. I am surprised that this other person has not noticed that you are not happy. But I believe the being honest is the best way to go. Don't make up excuses why you want to break up just tell the truth about it. Good luck.

Hey!! Do you have to say it out? Action speaks louder and possibly better than the voice. When your lover see changes in you, he/she will surely get the message and then seek for more information. Maybe then you can just let the cat out of the bag. As simple as ABC.

I don't know if the receiver of this news ever considers it to be "nice"; just be sure to tell him the truth. Don't try to sugar-coat things and certainly don't be dishonest. Tell him simply that you do not have the same feelings for him anymore and that you are not happy in the relationship. Be sure that he knows that there is nothing that he could change or do to make it better, or else he may try to talk you into staying. Don't stay in a relationship that doesn't make you happy and that you know in your heart won't work out. It's always hard to hurt someone elses feelings, but you will feel relieved after you do it.

just tell them you think its come to an end and you dont have the feelings you had when you first met. Dont suggest to stay friends because i dont believe that works, if your truely thinking of ending a relationship do it sooner than later its going to hurt whichever way. Dont stay in a relationship your not happy with and you feel will not be a sucess, dont leave it till its too late. As for nice way is there such a thing? good luck tc xx

Actually I know this is really hard to do.. Honestly I've experience this before just last yr.. Saying what's on your mind and what your heart feels is already a start rather than not saying them makes you feel unrelieve..

Its never easy to break off a relationship and I only had to do it once. But if you're not happy that may be one way to start off the conversation. I'm not happy and we need to part ways as friends and maybe in the future we can try this again but right now we need to take a break.
