Relationships are extremely difficult. They require a lot of time and effort and both people must be fully committed to making it work. The moment that one person checks out is probably the beginning of the end for that couple.

Breaking up with someone sucks because of all of that energy you've spent trying so hard to make it succeed and because you probably still care about the person and don't want to hurt them. Recent data, however, shows many Minnesotans have realized their relationship is over and are now looking for a way out.

Their first tip: "Make sure you actually want to break up."

You're not in high school anymore so act like an adult and put some serious thought into the decision.

Glamour also says you shouldn't go in guns a' blazin'. Instead prepare and practice a well thought out speech and deliver it face to face in a respectful manner.

Again, you're not in high school anymore. If you're going to break up with someone you should be courteous enough to do it in person.
