Are you the type of woman who always follows certain rules of etiquette when you want to end a relationship? If so, it’s time for a change. Being a lady doesn’t always work toward your advantage. There are situations when you should break up with a boyfriend without being nice. Six of them are below.
1. He’s been a jerk to you.
He’s slept with your girlfriends; ran up your credit cards; and, disrespected you in public. Don’t worry about following any rules in cutting ties with this guy. A quick call and short discussion will do just fine.
2. You fear for your safety.
Another time you don’t have to break up nicely with a man is when you’re afraid of him. If he has hit you or verbally abused you, you don’t owe him anything, but to leave. In this case, get back up from the local authorities and just stop returning his calls. He’ll get the message eventually.
3. You’re almost strangers.
Did you get caught up in a whirlwind romance? If your relationship is less than a couple of weeks old, this is a time you don’t have break up nicely. Since you never really knew him, you don’t owe your soon to be ex a big explanation. You can meet him for a quick cup of coffee and say good-bye.
4. He’s never claimed you as his.
The best lesson you can teach a guy who has enjoyed all of the amenities of being your boyfriend except claiming you is to break up with him coldly. Start ignoring his attempts for contact and when he gets desperate explain you didn’t think he cared since you weren’t really together. One of two things will happen. Either he’ll buck up and commit to you or let you go. Regardless of his choice, you’ll finally get the answer to your burning question of if he loves you or not.
5. He’s breaking up ugly with you.
Forget about taking the high road when your boyfriend is clearly breaking up with you in a dirty way. Maybe you’re out in public and he’s touting a new girl in your face or dumping you in front of friends in a vicious manner. If so, don’t waste time trying to break up with him nicely. Say your piece and move on. He obviously wanted to pick a fight and didn’t care about your feelings.
6. He participates in illegal activity.
Unfortunately, being the girlfriend of a bad boy has a few downfalls. Besides the fact your man might end up in cuffs at any time, he also might incriminate you through association. In this case, no break up rules apply. For a man who loves to rebel, however you part ways is all right. You probably don’t have to even say a word. Just don’t visit him in jail for a while and he’ll figure you’ve met someone new.
