    Hi

    I am planning on breaking up with my boyfriend next week. We've tried talking about it and I think we both know the relationship has run its course. I just wanted advice on the best way to handle the aftermath of breaking up with him.

    We're renting together; the tenancy is in both our names but with me as lead tennant. All the bills are in my name and come out of my bank account that he transfers money to. The majority of furniture is also mine apart from our sofa.

    My plan was to give him space for a few days and move in with my parents as I am the one initiating the break up. Unfortunately we moved to this area for my work so my commute would be 2 hours each way from my parents house. I'd be willing to do this but I'm scared he would trash the house and all of my belongings.

    The alternative is to stay living together. We already sleep in separate rooms so that isn't an issue but I do feel like we need a bit of space from each other.

    Has anyone had any experience with breaking up whilst still living together? If anyone has any advice it would be really appreciated.

    Thanks

    Really?

    That says a lot about his character and probably explains why you are breaking up with him.

    You sleep in different rooms? How do people even let it get to that stage?

    We sleep in separate rooms at the moment as he's hurt his back through rugby.
