It's never easy when you make the decision to end a relationship. There comes a point where we all have to admit that some relationships are just not going to work out.  However, there are some tips that can help you break up with someone delicately. Consider using one of these five approaches to ensure that the breakup is done the best way possible.

5. FACE TO FACE, although difficult to do, is the best route. Put away your cell phone or email and meet with your significant other in person. Show the person the respect they deserve by giving them your total attention and not disrespecting the relationship with a text breakup.
 
4. END ONE RELATIONSHIP BEFORE STARTING ANOTHER. Rip that Band-Aid off the wound and end the bad relationship before you stray to another one. If you're considering other people, it's time to address what's wrong in your current relationship and break up now before you become the "cheater" and have to address the guilt that comes with that.
 
3. END IT NOW, don't put it off, waiting for the right opportunity. While no, you shouldn't do it on Valentine's Day or their birthday, you also shouldn't string them along, making them think that everything is going fine. Set a date to end it and stick to your plan.
 
2. GIVE YOUR EX A SAY, and let them air their feelings. It's only right that they get a chance to explain, discuss, and gain some closure in the relationship. It's not going to be easy, but you owe it to them, as the one initiating the breakup, to let them get their issues off their chest too.
 
1. BE HONEST with them and don't leave anything left unsaid. While you're not trying to hurt them, let your ex know what you're feeling. There's nothing worse to the person being dumped than to be left wondering what went wrong. Tell the truth but don't keep re-hashing it. Simply do it and be done with it.
 
By following some or all of these tips, you and the person you're dating can understand what went wrong and move forward to the next best thing. Keep in mind that hurting each other is not the goal, but moving on is.
