How to End a Casual No Strings Attached Relationship Peacefully
By: Rosie Valentine |
Things can get a little messy when you’re ending a relationship with someone. Even if you both go into it knowing what you want, it can be a bit awkward to break it off. Here’s a few tips on how to gracefully end things with your fun buddy:
Determine where you are in your “relationship”
While it might not be a typical relationship, you still have a history. Even if that history is just you hooking up whenever you feel the urge. Have you been doing this for a very long time? Is it something relatively new? Figure that out first before you decide how to go about things.
Will you call? Will you text? Is this a face to face sort of break up? My first tip gives you big insight into how you should end it. Do what you think will be most comfortable for you both. Hey, if it’s an email sort of goodbye – go for it!
Give them a reason
Yeah, you don’t owe them anything, but a little respect might be nice. Maybe you’re ready to move on and find a real relationship or maybe you just found a new fling. Let them know you’re time with them was a blast, but it’s time to move on to the next thing.
One last go
What’s better than last time ever sex? Probably not much. Bring out all your best moves and really relish this last hook up. Make it count!
Last, but not least, don’t just cut off communication. We’re all grown ups here. If the other person when knowingly into a no strings relationship, then they know what to expect. There’s no feelings involved, so just tell them you’re ready to move on. Be sure to keep them in your little black book though for obvious reasons and make sure to let them know that!
