									How to Breakup with a Girlfriend
There may come a time in your life when your relationship with your girlfriend turns sour.
If you are reading this, it probably already has. Breaking up with your girlfriend is a tough
decision and is not to be taken lightly. You need to make sure it is something you really
want to do. If you are at the end of your rope and you don't think you can salvage the
relationship, it is time to cut your losses and move on. Follow these steps to learn how to
breakup with your girlfriend.

Things you'll need:

       A place to breakup

    o           1
              \Know not to tell your friends first. If you tell your friends that you are
              unhappy in your relationship and are going to breakup with your girlfriend,
              she will no doubt find out before you tell her. This would be unfair to her and
              create unneeded tension between the two of you; any tension you can save
              will be better in the long run.

    o           2
              Find the right day to breakup. Every woman is different, some would prefer
              the relationship to end right before the weekend so they can go out with
          their friends and get over it. Others however prefer an early week breakup
          so they can try to forget about it over the workweek. You should know your
          girlfriend well enough to decide which would be best for her.

  o         3
          Make sure you breakup in a neutral spot. To reduce how awkward the
          breakup will be, it is a good idea not to do it at your apartment. Public
          places such as parks and restaurants are good choices because they allow
          your soon to be ex-girlfriend a chance to leave whenever she wants without
          feeling overly embarrassed.

  o         4
          Breakup face to face. A personal breakup will not only drive the point home
          better, it also shows a level of maturity on your part. It is probably the
          hardest way to end a relationship, but it better allows the two of you to
          remain friends because of the respect it shows for your ex-girlfriend.

  o         5
          Explain your decision. She deserves to know why you are ending the
          relationship. Make sure to be thorough enough to leave any doubts out of
          her mind, but make sure that you don't go into too much detail.

  o         6
          Make sure you stick to your guns. You have obviously put a lot of thought
          into your decision to breakup with your girlfriend, so you need to make sure
          to stand by your decision. There may be tears shed on both sides, but that
          is no excuse to restart a failed relationship.

Tips & Warnings
         Be respectful to her. She deserves all of the information surrounding your
         Save her feelings. Do not turn the breakup into a battle. It should be simple and
          devoid of conflict.
         Do not reverse your decision. Taking back the breakup will only make things
          worse down the road.
         Keep your temper. Both parties can become defensive during a break up and it
          is easy to say things you do not mean in anger.
