This age of hook ups and hang outs, theres less breaking and a lot more phasing.
How to break up with someone you are just dating
But i disagree, and i think one of the reasons we have so many "phase-outs" is because heartbreakers believe they should probably have the face-to-face conversation but can't tolerate what they might feel if they do.
How to break up with someone you are not dating
But when talking to a friend last night about the breakup she was enduring (to a man who was less than a boyfriend but more than a bedmate) i realized that ending things has gotten significantly more complicated notjust because of technique (again, see: band-aids) but because this style of dating adds pressure to play it perennially cool.
But see the thing is, i didn't want to write about how to break up with someone, because i didn't want to seem like an asshole.
But because my dear friend doesnt feellike feeling sad about the guy she was sleeping with (but not exactly dating), we came up with a guide for being broken up with in this messy-ass 21st century.
I've been on the receiving end of a casual relationship ending over text message, facebook chat, the "phase-out," and the "i'm gonna drink few glasses of wine while you tell me you're seeing someone more seriously now and we can no longer talk.
