How to break up with a guy youve been hookup for a week

opinion

I've felt apprehensive about writing on this topic and have thus avoided it for a while.

How do you break up...

Then today I read this articleand realized it was time. I know most of you can relate to this topic; some of you have been on both sides of the experience, and some of you only on one.

Men, breakups, and coping

But see the thing is, I didn't want to write about how to break up with someone, because I didn't want to seem like an asshole. Hmm … similar to how I never want to break up with someone because I don't want to seem like an asshole.

Breaking someone's heart or wounding it, if you're in a more casual relationship really effing sucks. We always focus on how to heal a broken heart after being dumped, but we never acknowledge how crappy it is to be the heartbreaker.

This is why I chose to do my masters research in the area. Ironically, when I was writing the final chapter of my thesis, I got harshly dumped.
