We want different things, should we stop now before it goes to far? Watch

    So I’ve been going out with my girlfriend for nearly two years.
    We are now on a two week break, because she realised that we are really different people.
    We had a chat, and came to the conclusion that we want different things, e.g. I want kids, she doesn’t, she wants to live in a big city, I don’t.
    So I’m wondering, should we just not kid ourselves and end it now, for the last 6ish months we’d argue near every day about something.
    I don’t want to hurt her, and I don’t want to lead her on.
    Any and all advice welcome.

    It's a sad situation - is there any possibility you can reach a compromise? If not, sadly I don't think the relationship will work out. Nobody's to blame, it's just that you wanted different things in life. By splitting now, you can part on good terms and are free to meet people with the same ideals as you. It saves the hurt and time invested if you split later on after the damage has been done, especially if you start to resent each other.
