Breaking Up Is Hard To Do
There is only one way to break up with someone. Tell it to her in person. Some books and web sites suggest; nay, encourage the use of devices such as electronic greeting cards or even ICQ to break the news of your breakup to her.
If you do, you are a cowardly man who obviously neither has the integrity nor the sincerity to tell her that your relationship is over.
Using an electronic medium is not only insensitive, it also simply means that you will have to tell it to her in person yourself at a later date. You are merely postponing the inevitable as well as losing whatever shred of respect she had for you.
Where To Go?
I strongly suggest that when breaking up, you invite her out for lunch or dinner at the very same place you first met or had a date together. The symbolic significance of your relationship having come full circle will not be lost on both of you during your breakup.
When telling her the awful truth, you should have a solemn face and say the words like you mean them. I really hope you do. Telling her in person is never easy, breaking up never is, and you owe it to her to tell the news of your breakup to her personally. Not on the phone, definitely not over e-mail, but in the flesh.
