10 Creative Ways To Break Up

Sure, breaking up is hard to do. But that doesn't mean you can't be creative in your approach.

No one likes being broken up with. And few people, I'm sure, actually enjoy being the breaker upper. But regardless of the situation it has to happen, because as much as I would love to tell you that you will only date one person…it rarely happens. And as someone who as been on both ends, multiple times, I feel as though I can shed some light on creative ways to break up with your S.O. You know instead of the regular schtick. You know, the fading out, the AIM "talk," the post-it drop off or the take you out to dinner pretend like nothing's wrong then wait until the parking lot to say this just isn't working in front of about 5 biker guys who give you sympathetic looks and a "Sorry hunny, rough break." You know, that classic break-up route.

Anyway, here are ten ways I would rather be broken up with:

1. A balloon. I would much rather see a balloon floating at my front door that says "Courtney, I'm breaking up with you," rather than getting a text that says "I'm sorry. I can't. Don't hate me." Not to mention, a balloon won't judge you if you decided to cry right then and there.


2. Rent an elephant. What better way to ease the pain than with a free elephant ride? Well maybe a trip to Italy…but an elephant ride would be a close second.

3. Hire a choir. Why speak when you can hire professionals to sing it in a 5 part harmony and matching outfits.

4. Send them on a treasure hunt. After a day long treasure hunt finding nice prizes, you send them to a poster board tied to a tree that says "It's over, the relationship and the treasure hunt."

5. Buy a box of chocolate and a newly single self-help book. Ring the door bell leaving the presents at the bottom, before you take off make sure to write a little 3 liner in the book i.e. "Hopefully this will help you on your new journey into single life. – Lisa"
