Recovering from a relationship is easy. Dumping your girlfriend however, is a completely different deal. There are a lot of ways to dump your girlfriend. But there are a few where you need to step on the brakes and rethink your strategy—because if not, then all hell could break loose. Learn from the experts, and realize that your strategy might be the sole cause of your suffering in the few years ahead. Here are the 5 worst ways to dump her that’ll guarantee she’ll go psycho on you.
Dumping her Through Text Messages
Rule number 1 during breakups: do not do it through text. Not only it is a very cruel thing to do, it lacks closure to the nth level. Because of the nature of text messages, girls are left hanging, no matter how detailed your text message can be. And once you do this, beware—expect to see a lot of her face in the following weeks. Granting that the distance between you and her are worlds apart; you should never dump her through text messages. What you can do however, is to text her that you need to talk, but give the subtle hint that something’s wrong so that she’ll commit to your meeting with her.
Posting About it on Facebook
Facebook is another no-no, much worse if you post it as your Facebook status. Dumping her through Facebook will be a serious problem, because it too lacks closure of some sort. And never, ever announce it to the public without even resolving your issues with her first. Once you do this, anticipate a lot of backlash, scrutiny and your girlfriend going psycho on you for a few months. What’s worse is that a lot of people will think you’re a douche bag for doing so, making you the antagonist of this drama. Always remember that even though how pathetic your girlfriend has treated you, do not do the same to avoid bad publicity.
Falling Off Her Radar
There’s nothing more rude than getting off the radar just to prove your point of not seeing her anymore. What happens is that when you the disappearing act, your girl would go psycho on you. She’ll stalk you; try to reach all your friends. Hell, she’ll even threaten you just to talk with her. This may seem the best way to dump her, but trust us: no one has been successful doing this without getting creep-out by your girl. The best option, if this is inevitable, meet-up with her before you do the disappearing act. That way, you get to iron out some things before you go.
Relaying Your Message Through a Friend
It is very annoying for women to get dumped through a friend. Not only is this degrading on their part, it also takes away their pride and self-worth. Am I really that annoying that he asked his friend to dump me? This will linger in a woman’s mind, making her go psycho on you before you can even say brownies. This may be a good idea at first, but breakups happen between two people, and not by other people outside a relationship. An even worse scenario would be the distortion of the original message you’ve intended for her.
Writing it all in a Letter
It would be a shock to most of you that the letter is on this list. It may seem okay at first, but this gets on the nerves of women. Even though how well-written and articulate your letter is, it doesn’t make up for the fact that you’ve dumped someone through indirect means. It also gives her something she can read over and over again, making them psycho by the minute. Dumping her through letter is the worst way possible that will surely guarantee you being a sure target for assassination.
Even though there are a lot of worse ways to dump her, there’s still hope. Make sure that you explain everything to your partner, making your presence a valid indicator for your sincerity. Also make sure that you get to iron out all your past agreements, tying loose-ends and amending all problems and disputes. If ever she exhibits signs of going psycho for you, talk to her about it. Do not avoid her or make bad remarks about it in public. Make sure you keep it private between the two of you, and she’ll recover in no time.
