However, others may feel they owe the person a conversation.
If you discover that there is nothing the other person can give (or anything you’re willing to relinquish), then that should tell you something.
Similarly, if you’re in a relationship that used to work but has now turned rancid because one of you has moved or changed or cheated, you can’t go back. Breaking up is as important a skill as any other part of dating. The world’s too small a place, and you’re too big a person, so don’t even think about it. .” and no, it isn’t okay to say, “I feel you’re a rat.” This approach is okay only if you follow up with something about yourself, like, “I feel neglected when you work weekend after weekend.” (Of course, if you had been able to say this when you were feeling it, the relationship might not be beyond redemption at this point.) If you’re specific now, at least both of you can look at the data as dispassionately as possible rather than feeling that either of you failed.
Yesterday morning I signed onto GChat and received the following message from a friend: “I officially got dumped by someone I wasn’t dating.” Whoo, boy.
Apparently, my friend had gone on two dates with a guy — fine dates! And then, out of nowhere, she gets a long, kindly-worded email from him explaining that things weren’t going to work out, but that she was “a nice girl,” etc etc.
