You don't. You tell him straight up, I don't love you and need to move on, so we're through. Don't contact me again (presuming you don't have children together).

thesunshinesbrightly Fri 01-Jul-11 01:30:20

No i wont cheat.
No children together.
We argue alot and we have broke up(lost count of how many) each time i feel sorry for him and we get back together.

Yeah be straight. Ignoring's cowardly

lachesis Fri 01-Jul-11 01:31:52

Then end it, OP. Don't play games. You're better and more adult than that.

I don't love you anymore and need to move on. So we're through. Don't contact me again. Goodbye.

You sound as though you're twelve. If you're older than that then act your age and tell him straight.

thesunshinesbrightly Fri 01-Jul-11 01:35:35

I know i should end it and yeah i am a coward don't like hurting people.

"I know i should end it and yeah i am a coward don't like hurting people."

Because playing games isn't going to hurt? hmm

thesunshinesbrightly Fri 01-Jul-11 01:58:14

How am i playing games?

Tell your best mate to tell his best mate

So rather than hurting someone you feel it better to manipulate them into doing your dirty work for you? hmm

If you want to end a relationship then be honest and brave and tell the truth. Start with "I'm sorry but this isn't making me happy any more" and work from there.

Why don't you end it? FGS. How old are you? This is so yawntastic it is hardly worth bothering with. Being with someone you don't like much - with no children, financial ties, or abuse issues - is so fucking SIMPLE it is unbelievable. You are either very young or very stupid - or both?

Anniegetyourgun Fri 01-Jul-11 08:00:08

Why do you believe he's hurt when you break up? If you mattered that much to him he wouldn't be cheating on you or picking quarrels, he'd be trying to make you happy so you would want to stay together. All this only woman I've ever loved, can't live without you bullshit is just that - he reels you back in so he can continue treating you badly. The only thing that may be hurt when you tell him it's over is his pride. The rest of him would go rushing out and find another girlfriend - or, on form, two - to take his mind off things. He'd be sad for all of five minutes. It's actually kinder to make it stick than to keep taking him back, so that he can move on. That's why people are accusing you of game playing. Not that I think he deserves kindness, but there we go.

Meanwhile, there's another person in all this who is continually being hurt, and that person is you. Just ask yourself why he, the cheating, lying so-and-so, deserves more consideration. You have feelings too, they matter, and you should be respected when you say "I don't want to go out with you any more". He is showing you a massive lack of respect when he comes crawling and whining back. Get thee unto a counsellor, m'dear, and find out why someone else's (faked?) pain is worth so much more than yours.

Thank you Annie

Good luck pet. You can do this.

thesunshinesbrightly Fri 01-Jul-11 08:47:27

I know all of what you have said is true. Thank you for making me see sense and i'm being childish have been in a abusive relationship so i suppose making him dump me was just easier because i can't be bothered with his reaction and being stalked again.

BertieBotts Fri 01-Jul-11 09:35:56

If you have no children can you not just cut all ties with him and disappear?

AnyF Fri 01-Jul-11 10:53:58

If he stalks you, inform the police and have them sort it out

You shouldn't stay with someone because you are afraid of what will happen if you don't

Everyone has the right to terminate a relationship because they want to, if they are honest and transparent.

buzzsore Fri 01-Jul-11 11:18:06

I think maybe make yourself a plan, of what you'll say to end it, and what to do if he starts harrassing you or stalking or if he tries to emotionally blackmail you. Get a couple of friends on hand to help you go no-contact. Tell him it's over, delete his number, possibly bar his number, delete him from your email etc and set it up so his emails go to junk or are blocked.

I bet you know what he's likely to do already, since you're tried to split with him before, so this time you can be prepared and have your friends ready to talk you down. And be prepared to go to the police if he does stalk you - you have a right to end the relationship.

thesunshinesbrightly Fri 01-Jul-11 11:39:26

I do have children - not with him tho.
I am being a wuss - i know.
Thank you for your advice.
