#4 Don’t disrespect

Even if you have broken up, it doesn’t mean that you can say everything you want about your ex-partner and badmouth him or her. You should respect them and remember about all great moments and things you have experienced together. Avoid gossiping and be careful, maybe one day you’ll become friends or even lovers again.

#5 Don’t avoid the other person

If you have decided to break up with your partner, you should do it at once. Don’t drag things out. Be decisive and tell everything you feel and think. It will be much better if he or she will hear all this stuff from you but not from other people. Don’t avoid your soon-to-be ex and talk about your decision.

So, as you can see, breakup is a rather difficult think and one should be very careful and attentive to do it. Remember about the feelings of the other person and be grateful for the time you’ve spent together.
