    Have YOU been involved in a break up? If so, feel free to answer any / all of the questions below to share your experience and help other people deal with their own break ups.

    Q1. When did the breakup take place?

    Q2. Did you break up with someone / get broken up with / break up mutually?

    Q3. Why did you break up?

    Q4. How do you feel about your ex now?

    Q5. Do you have any advice for how to break up with someone / avoid a break up / cope with a breakup?


    Here's my latest experience:

    Q1. 3 months ago.

    Q2. Kind of mutual, we both saw it coming but had different reasons for wanting to break up.

    Q3. She didn't want a long distance relationship since she was going to university, especially since our communication had died down a bit in the months leading up to the break up.
    I felt like the relationship was more of a chore and it wasn't fulfilling, I was mainly still in it because we shared the same friend group and it would complicate things between our friends if we split up too soon before uni started.

    Q4. I don't hate her, I care about her but I slowly grew to dislike her the longer the relationship carried on.

    Q5. Communication is key, speak with your partner about things you don't like about your relationship and try to deal with them.
    If nothing changes, it's probably best not to be in a relationship with them.

    Q1. Last 2 days of exam season
    Q2. Mutually/initiated by me
    Q3. They where getting increasingly physical with my long term best-friend and where communicating more with my best friend than me.
    Q4. Dislike them. As, imo, it was them who broke the relationship. But they are trying to talk to me again (only friendly)
    Q5 a. Break up face to face if you are in the right, if you are not, break up over text or something.
    Q5 b. I tried doing this for around 2 months, it doesn't work, if you are trying to avoid it, you need to do it.
    Q5 c. Life still goes on! Go do some fun ****
