Brace yourself. It might get brutal.
Is there ever a time when getting dumped feels OK? Even when you know things are working out with you and your partner, it still hurts when they break up with you. Maybe you tried more than once to repair your relationship but it was inevitable that one of you was going to have to end it.
It definitely hurts less to be the person doing the dumping. You might still feel guilty or sad, but there's also relief you feel from pulling the trigger on the relationship.
Most endings are difficult and it can be challenging to find a method of breaking up that doesn't cause an inordinate amount of pain. Some people like to do a breakup campaign where they start giving clues for weeks before they finally get enough courage to dump their partner; others use a more spontaneous and blunt method where they just blurt something out.
Another breakup technique is to be so obnoxious that your partner is practically forced to do the breaking up. But a clean break is always better than one that seems to go on and on, with the couple breaking up and getting back together, only to break up again. Some people will keep their exes in their lives in case they can't find someone new, which is the worst.
Still, getting dumped is far preferable to being ghosted. We all want to know what's going on in our relationship and when your partner just stops communicating with you, refusing to answer your texts, calls or emails, it can prolong the pain indefinitely.
If you have no clue that your partner is going to break up with you, it can appear to be from out of nowhere when they finally do dump you. Sometimes there are steps to a break up, and other times it's fast and emotionless.
Aries like to get in and get out fast. They like the chase, and once that's done,they often feel the need to move on. What they say may seem innocent enough, but the underlying meaning is that they need more excitement in their life.
It isn't often that a Taurus man will instigate a breakup. When he commits, he really commits. He's so amazingly stubborn that if you get into a fight, he'll never compromise.
A Gemini knows he needs to break up with you but won't want to, so he'll prolong it as long as he can. Then, after it's been awhile since you've heard from him, he'll contact you again. Geminis have a tendency to hoover (string you along).
Cancers are very emotional, especially the men. And even if you keep a clear head, there's going to be some major waterworks on his part. He may not even want to dump you and it could just be a preemptive strike. He'd much rather be the dumper than the dumpee.
Most of the time, Leos are pretty loyal, unless their partner isn't giving them the attention they think they deserve. Then, they'll leave them for someone else. They're arrogant enough to introduce you to the woman replacing you.
It takes Virgo men a very long time to get into a relationship and even longer to get out of it, so they'll come up with a detailed plan to get you to dump him.
Libra men aren't cold, but they don't like unnecessary confrontation. They like to put their logic skills to the test and make a balanced argument about why he needs to dump you.
Scorpios absolutely can't stand liars, and once they've caught you in a lie, you're done. It's over, and since they're also not big on forgiveness, there's very little chance that you're going to get back together.
Sagittarius need to keep moving, keep seeing new things and meeting new people. They absolutely can't stand feeling tied down.
Capricorns may not confront you on every little thing you've done wrong in your relationship, but they haven't forgotten them. When it comes time to dump you, Capricorn is going to list all of them as evidence for why this breakup is inevitable.
While the Aquarius man will have little to no emotion over a breakup, he doesn't want to look like a bad guy. He'll start laying the breakup foundation early, with passive-aggressive questions that will alert you to the fact that he's going to dump you.
As much as Pisces would like to be direct, he'll be unable to just dump you. He'll need to come up with a good excuse (possibly lie) so you won't feel that badly. It most likely won't work and you'll feel like crap. The good news is that he'll be wallowing over the breakup in his head for months to come.
