There is no easy way to break up with your boyfriend. First, ascertain that you really and truly want to break up with him. Create a list of reasons why you are breaking up with him (he smells funny, he is cheap, he wants kids but you don’t, whatever). Then, try to think of a tactful way to tell him that you are breaking up with him for these reasons. For example, ‘Dustin, we are completely different. We have different views on personal hygiene You want to get married and have kids within the next five years, while I want to make partner at my firm and climb Mount Everest. You are a great person and someone with similar interests and goals will be lucky to have you, but sadly, that person is not me.’ Just remember to be kind–this is not the time to be cruel.
