In the modern era almost everything has become just a click away. Whether it is an official meeting or a deal, catching up with friends and family, educational program, shopping, planning vacations and even conducting a marriage, people are getting more glued and attached to the online world.
Of all, the most powerful and popular trend is social networking which is at its boom, thanks to the number of social networking sites available. Many of us spend quite a substantial time connecting people online, meeting and making new friends and associates. While some may be related to work, others can be just for fun or time pass. Dating online is quite common nowadays.
One can easily get attracted to the self portrayal of his/her date. Since there is lesser chance of personal encounter, one can possibly falsely sketch a self image that is ideal in many respects. In such a case getting attracted to a wrong person thereafter into a relationship is quite likely. Let us see how we can breakup in such a situation in a gracious manner.
Make up your mind and decide how you'll convey your decision to your online partner. Your must have taken time to gradually come to this decision. So spare a little bit of time in choosing the best way to break the news to your online partner so that the whole process becomes more comfortable and less complicated for both of you.
Choose the most convenient medium to reveal your feelings to your partner. While you might have been comfortable with him/her on any form of online communiqué, e.g. Facebook, Twitter, emails, chat, video chats, sms among others, this conversation needs you to be more thoughtful in choosing the medium. If you want to have a one-to-one conversation chats, video chats can be more preferable. If you want to avoid a direct confrontation as you feel your partner might react abruptly and want to give him/her some time to mould in the situation before getting back to you, then probably email could be a choice.
Time it right. When going for a one-to-one conversation, select a time that is convenient for both of you. It is better to chat after a day’s work when the two of you will be probably more relaxed rather than in the morning when both of you might be gearing up for the day or during office hours.
Cut it straight. At the very start tell him/her that you are concerned about something and would like to have a serious conversation rather than a regular chit-chat. Make yourself clear before him/her and tell why you have come to such a decision. Avoid direct accusations and negative comments.
Be subtle in your approach. It is possible that it was totally unexpected by your partner, so be sensitive and considerate about his/her feelings. Give him/her some time to come to terms with. In case your partner reacts furiously or unreasonably, do not over react. Rather clarify him/her the reasons that have compelled you to take such a decision.
Ensure that you do not, in any way, keep in touch. Though you are not in a position to meet him/her personally, yet getting updates about your partner’s status or finding him/her online might make you curious about and tempt you to know things about him/her. The online signal gives a feeling that he/she is still around and just a click away from your world. If such things bother you, though it might sound harsh, you can cut off yourself from your partner’s network. After all life is all about moving forward.
