Break up without breaking his ego

How to tactfully break up with him without damaging his ego


Let them be the first to know

Out of respect make sure that you tell them first about what is happening rather than announcing to friends about what you are going to do. The last thing you want is for it to reach them along the trusted grapevine before you have had a chance to. It is fine to discuss relationship problems with friends and get advice but the final decision shouldn’t be aired to the world before the deed is done.
