I want to break up with my boyfriend because we can't get along and I don’t see a future. I want to remain friends with him, what is the best way to do this? –Betty from New York
your concerns, for example, "I am concerned that all we do is fight." Thirdly, listen to how he responds and what he is expressing to you?he may be just as frustrated and wanting to end the relationship as well. Finally, share with him your true feelings and make a transition plan. For instance, you can say, "I really love you and want to be dear friends, in order to do that I would like a little time without any type of communication so I can adjust." Then really listen to how he is feeling and his thoughts on the matter. He may not be able to be friends and may need a clean break. The most important thing to remember is to honor all of the good from your relationship and your partner as you move through the process of ending things and letting go.
