Breaking up is hard to do...but in this day & age is it really?

I am sure anyone who has read my blogs knows that I thought I had quite unexpectedly found someone. Of course, as some had tried to warn me, it didn't work out. But that is not why I am here tonight. I would like to have others opinion of what really is appropriate when breaking up with someone.

Do any of you have thoughts on what is proper in this time of such impersonal methodes of meeting people? Obviously, there are several catagories to be considered here.

1. Friends with benefits
2. Dating and have had sex
3. Serious relationship marriage minded

So what do you guys/girls think? What is appropriate for each one??

** Let me clarify, how do you handle breaking up these days - do you email, IM, phone or see them to do it?

mmmmm those MELONS in my mouth would be very appropriate and keep him around until you find someone else to ride LOL ( the friend with benefits and when the time comes the usual "this just isn't working out" sends me packing hahahah

In any of the above three scenarios there are only a few things that matter. Be honest with the person. Be straight forward when giving your reason. Don't flounder,be brief.

Sorry it didn't work.

Be honest with the person no matter what, but honesty doesn't have to be fact filled. Normally there are several reasons if you look for them. I try to choose ones that will not make the person feel any worse than they already do. My last break-up came unexpectedly/expectedly and I kind of knew it was coming, but the physical side of things hadn't been anything to complain about. She came over and said it wasn't working out for her and I said that I didn't mind and I could see we weren't really making good connections. It was still a little bit of a drag losing someone, but we all have the power to move on.
