Dear Dr. Dot,
I want out of my current relationship and have felt like leaving her ages ago, but haven’t found an easy way out. Is there a guilt-free way to leave some one?
A lot depends on how you feel about her. If there is the slightest chance you may want her back someday, then you must tell her in person. If you are under 25, it’s easy; just tell her you are still young and you want to explore life. If you are older, tell her you need time alone right now to decide what path you will take for your future. If you don’t give a toss if you see her ever again, email/call or text her and say, “Sorry, I’m not a “we” person anymore, take care.” The cruelest way to leave someone is to just vanish. Karma will hunt you down and make you suffer, so do have the courage to say goodbye or watch your back.
