How To Break up With Your Live in Boyfriend or Girlfriend
Breaking up with a live-in boyfriend or girlfriend is a daunting and painful task. It is likely to cause more pain when you break free from a live-in relationship than put an end to a standard dating relationship.
You can follow certain steps to ensure that the break up with your living in partner happens smoothly, without discord.
Muster courage to act on your decision
Get the guts to end the relationship with a person with whom you have been sharing living space and a lot of other stuffs for some time. It is never easy to cut the strings of relationship and love for a live-in partner but you need to make up your mind. If you are sure that you can no longer continue to live a happy life with your partner then gather the courage to break away from the bond.
Weigh the positive and negatives
Assess the situation that has led you to consider a break up with your live-in partner. If there are behavioral issues or compatibility factors at work for your decision to move away from your partner then ascertain if they could be changed for the positive. You will also have to weigh the consequences of moving away from your partner. Take into account the expenses that will increase once you split from your live in partner. Till now, you divided all the costs and things but after breaking away from your live-in partner, you will have to live alone. Take a decision to break free if you are comfortable with the idea of staying alone without having to share things with anyone else.
Talk to your live-in partner
Engage in a discussion with your live-in partner and talk about the problems that have led you to take the decision to break the relationship. Rather than keeping silent about your feelings, it is better to talk about issues that have made it difficult to stay with your live-in partner. Confront your partner in a polite manner and avoid making rude comments to make sure that your relationship of so many days does not end on a bitter note. Try to make your partner see logic as to why continuing the relationship without having enough trust and understanding does not make sense.
Stick to your decision
Once you have made up your mind to break the relationship with your live-in partner, stay firm. Convey your decision in a polite manner but do not get carried away to change it if your partner tries to get emotional. Let no emotions or remarks from your live-in partner prompt you to change your decision. Maintain your stand to break free from the bond if your partner expresses contrite and promises to rectify mistakes. Dragging on the bond will only cause more hurt and pain when there is no love, mutual understanding and compatibility between you and your partner.
Set a deadline
Specify your live-in partner about the date when you will move out from the house and stick to it. Delaying your plans to vacate the common living space will only weaken you further.
