How to Get Out of a Bad Relationship

Are you looking for ways to get out of a bad relationship? Maybe, your time together has lost the excitement it used to have or maybe you’ve just realized that you aren’t right for each other.  There are many reasons to end a relationship.  Whatever your reason is, once you have decided that your relationship is over, it is important to end it quickly and move on. Here are some important things to remember that will help you to end your bad relationship as painlessly as possible.

Identify the Problem:

Relationships end for many different reasons.  Identifying what went wrong and why your relationship didn’t work is one of the most important things you can do.  Whether the problem was infidelity or simple incompatibility, identifying it will help prevent you from making the same mistakes in future relationships.


If you are planning to end your relationship, be sure that both of you are on the same page. It isn’t fair to walk away from your partner without giving them a reason why.  Once you have decided that the relationship is over, tell your partner.  Be clear about the reason and firm about your decision.

Be Direct:

If you have decided that it is necessary to break up, tell your partner directly.  Don’t beat around the bush.  Tell your partner how you feel and make it clear that you don’t want to give your relationship a second chance. Acting unsure about your decision will only lead to more pain for both you and your partner.

However, remember to consider your partner’s feelings.  Don’t be cruel or blame your partner for all of the bad things in the relationship. Keep the conversation short and rational.

Stay Out:

Once you have decided to walk out from your bad relationship, avoid contact with your ex.  Don’t give in to the urge to call or email.  It can be difficult at first but try to keep busy.  Even if you want to remain friends with your ex, it is best to wait for the right time, until you have both moved away from the past bittersweet memories.
