- Make the other person the first to know. Nothing is worse than a second hand breakup, that being one your significant other hears from friends before they hear it from you. - End the relationship in person. While leaving a voicemail or sending an email might be the easiest route to take when breaking up, talking to your significant other is the most mature thing to do. - Be precise. Make your intentions perfectly clear, with no room for interpretation. - Don't rehash old wounds. The past is the past and it should be left there. - Make it about you. Don't make the person feel inferior or cite any of their flaws. Make this about your decision to end the relationship, not them. Special note about abusive relationships: If you are in an abusive relationship, seek help immediately. There are a variety of counselors and shelters designed to help with ending abusive relationships, and their advice is crucial. If you do this simple step, you are sure to rid your jerk, disrespectful, abusive, jealous, accusive spouse. Have you ever had to dump someone, or have you ever been dumped by someone? Was it done rudly or in a nice manner?
