Spring Cleaning Your Man

Spring Cleaning Your Man

Spring
has officially sprung. Now that the clocks have moved forward the days will get
longer, winter’s cozier layers will reveal hot summer bods and all across the
globe women will not only clean out their closets, boyfriends will also be
discarded like last season’s trends.

That’s
right, we’ve entered breakup season. All winter long lovebirds have been
hibernating with their significant others, spending long, cold nights together
– playing Jenga, watching movie marathons, enjoying winter getaways and bottomless
cups of cocoa. What may have seemed so perfect in December when you were
trading overflowing stockings, may have become tiresome (“Oh you again?”) or
nerve rattling (“How could have ever found your snoring adorable?!”) And now
that the sun has started to shine, you may now see possibilities abounding
indicating to you it is time to trade in the old to make room for something
new… and better.

 

If
you’ve got the breakup itch, you’re not alone – Jennifer Love Hewitt and Kate
Winslett joined the single women’s tribe this week. And this is just the
beginning of what is the annual relationship apocalypse among couples. Just
wait and see. Be it long term love or short, spring is the time to dispose of
unhealthy, unsatisfying or going nowhere relationships, because with summer
around the corner, there is no shortage of opportunities to revisit like and
love’s playground!

But how
do you do it? Once you’ve committed to uncommitting, how do you break it off?
Well it all depends on what caused you to come to the end of bliss road. Below
are a few examples of various break-up situations and the best/worst approaches
to cutting the tie. In general though, any breakup method ought to be quick,
honest and respectful, complete with “I” statements. It should offer a clear
explanation but not be drawn out. It should declare unquestionable finality -
not leaving a measure of ambiguity. Your goal should be to cause the least
amount of post break-up drama for both parties involved.
