Relationship tips: Communicate well

Do it face to face- According to an article in a news portal, Guy Winch, a New York City psychologist and author of How to Fix a Broken Heart, agrees that you need to communicate about what's bothering you to your partner. Don't just text - "I am breaking up" even if it's a long-distance relationship or even when if you have only dated the person once or twice. You still need to communicate and always make sure to address your issues; it's only fair.

Relationship advice - One tip is to break up at their home, not yours so that when you leave they will at least be at a safe place. For times when you are scared about your safety while breaking up, then don't break up at an isolated place.

Relationship tips: Be respectful

Be sensitive - Don't break up with your partner because you are bored. Don't start dating right before you have decided to break up. It is wrong at so many levels. If you were in a relationship with your partner where you both agreed to be exclusive and monogamous, then dating before breaking up is considered cheating and will be the most hurtful thing that you do.
