How to Breakup: Dear Jane
So you want to leave your current relationship and dont know how. You've been trying to
breakup with your girlfriend, but realize that confronting her personally will only
complicate the situation. She's going to plead and cry, and her tears always lead you to
take her back. It soon becomes a never ending cycle. Maybe, writing a letter is the best
When writing your letter the first thing to include is, "Dear (individual's
name"). This is very important because this is your greeting message, and
an end to much heartache in your life.
The next step is to include the content of your letter. During this time you
must explain the reason you are writing this letter. To make the process
simpler, describe the (5 W's) to help you write the content of your letter.
Most importantly, you will describe 'who' you are breaking up with. Describe
'what' has gotten you to this point in the relationship, 'when' did these
feelings start regarding the whole situation, 'where' will this break up lead
you in the future, and 'why' life can be so much better without this
relationship. The 5(W's) can make up the whole content of your "Dear Jane"
letter. Soon you will be on your way to freedom.
The final portion of your letter will include salutations, and this will end your
letter. You can end your letter with sincerely, love always, etc. The problem
with using 'love always', it can send mix signals of a possible reconnection.
When writing a 'Dear Jane" you have to make sure you are completely
putting an end to the relationship, exhausting all possibilities of rekindling.
You do not want to confuse her in anyway. So end your letter wisely.
Now, you have written your "Dear Jane" letter. You have to decide to hand
deliver the letter or mail the letter. Remember, the purpose of writing your
letter is to avoid all personal contact. If you can leave your letter without any
questioning, then by all means you can do so. But, if this is not possible for
you, then mailing the letter is your only option.
