Relationship ending after 6 months
5

Casper10 · 27/06/2022 21:35

Hi

So just a general question. If after 6 months you think a relationship is at its end what would you say is the cleanest way of ending it. No real ill feeling just seems to have run its course.

I would explain to the person why it is ending to avoid any confusion. Depends if they will have seen it coming or not. Would they have expected it eg cheating etc or is this just how you feel?

No cheating or anything like that

OP you've not given much context to your situation, however if no wrong doing were involved and your feelings has simply changed, then you can simply sit them down and tell them you no longer feel the same and why. There's always the why. If there is no why, you can tell him that as well.

Talk about your feelings, rather than anything about them. Don't leave them with a feeling they did something wrong or that they're somehow deficient. 'I feel we have some incompatibilities' is nice.

If you've been seeing each other regularly still then I would go round in person, give them a heads up you want to talk so they don't look forward to a date, then explain how you've had a lovely time getting to know them, they're great but unfortunately you don't feel that it's going to progress any further so would like to leave things as they are. All the very best etc...

If it's fizzled and you don't see each other much then a call to say the same is fine.

Say how you feel rather than how they're not a good fit.
