If you keep yourself occupied-especially planning you trip away it makes you forget about them, i know it's annoying waking up thinking of them, all day thinking about them and going to bed thinking about them but planning your own life-your trip, will stop you thinking about the realtionship and in time you will be totally over it! and that feels good!

So jackflash you get planning and leave this country!

jackflash please leav the place and go elsewhere and ponder in silence i am sure it would bring you some change not thinking about the relationship.

thanks guys. Zeisha I cant say to myself I hate her... because I dont... it would be impossible too... the sad thing is the reason we are breakin up is because I want to travel for a year alone, well to begin with anyway.... it's just something I have to do, I have to see what the possibilities of life can offer me...

I'm a home wrecker

From experience, it's possible to keep up a long-distance relationship, so long as you're honest and open about everything. If that's not in your cards, though, I'd go with just being honest about why you want to end it. No need to go out with guns blqsing.

Although if that's what you want to do, best use the "I liked you before you were fat" line...

How about the famous "Dear John/Jane" letter... use the template below...

Dear [their name],

By now, you must realize that I am gone, and that I am not coming back.

Don't feel responsible-it's not you, it's me. My [ busy career / expensive drug habit / intense racquetball schedule / fascination with on-line pornography ] prevents me from committing to a serious relationship.

Besides, you deserve better. You deserve someone who appreciates all of your most special qualities, especially the cute way you [ leave your toenail clippings on the couch / sing along when you don't know the lyrics / feign naivete when I suggest you do laundry / scarf down two pints of Ben & Jerry's while watching Ally
McBeal reruns ].

Even though we're no longer together, we'll always have our memories. I'll never forget the time you [ asked me to pull your finger / made me lie about my religion to your parents / brought home a bucket of KFC on my birthday ]!

They say that time heals all wounds, and I hope that soon you will be able to [ love again / like again /speak my name without sobbing / speak coherently to another person of the opposite gender ]. When this time comes, I hope that we will be [ good friends / fake phony superficial friends / in different states / as far apart as humanly possible ].

Love Always, / Love, / Warm regards, / Fondly, / Adios,
[Your Name]

OMG Riverbank that was so so funny.

Jack - when you know the answer - let me know. I'm so in the same situation. Wish it was as easy as just a letter and leaving!!

Goodluck

hey jackflash i am sorry.The best way is you can tell her just leave me alone for sometime and maybe someday i will get back to you. Come on jack flash.

hey jackflash-in exactly the same situation. Me and mine broke up cuz im off so we dont hate each other-which makes it crap. We've both been temporarily seeing other people but personally i cant wait to leave britain and put some space between us. Hopefully that'll do the trick. only 63 days to put up with being constantly reminded of what we had cuz we have the same friends and still see each other all the time. God this is a happy topic isn't it?
