If you've decided to stop being friends with someone or dating them, how is the best way to go about telling them? Should you just cut them out completely? Slowly spend less and less time with them until you've drifted apart? Explicitly tell them you don't want to be around them anymore and why? Does it depend on why you're ending the relationship (them being abusive vs. them being nice but just not compatible w/ you)? How long the relationship was? Romantic vs. platonic?

Here’s three approaches that work for different situations:

1. If the relationship isn’t particularly close—i.e., casual friends or a couple of lackluster dates, with neither party very emotionally invested—it’s acceptable to simply disappear and stop calling.  No need to have a “break-up” conversation.  However, if they contact you to ask what’s up, it’s courteous to move to approach 2.

2. If the relationship is close, you should explicitly tell them that it’s over.  Be discreet with the “why,” however.  Getting too much into the reasons you want to break up can make people think “so if I just fix/disprove these things, they’ll take me back!”  Unless this is actually a possibility, it’s better to stay in the “it’s just not working out” zone.

3.  The total cut-off. If the relationship ends on fairly amicable grounds and you want to stay in contact with the person, you certainly can.  However, the following are good reasons to send them exactly one message saying “I don’t want to communicate with you ever again” and then never say or respond to another thing:

a) They have been abusive or you’re scared of them.

b) You tried #1 and/or #2 and they’ve continued to pursue you.

c) You simply don’t want to communicate with them.  In some circles I think there’s pressure to prove that you’re a cool modern breaker-upper by staying buddies with your ex and telling everyone (and each other, and yourself) how super mature and amicable your breakup was.  And that’s okay, but it shouldn’t be mandatory.  Sometimes there’s been no abuse or stalking but the "it was super chill we still totally hang all the time"-style breakup just isn’t what you want.  You are free to make that decision.

This has always been a huge worry for me about friendships and relationships. Thank you. Thank you thank you. It’s nice to hear this from other people.

Two homeless men squat in the shadow of the recently completed World Trade Center. New York City was on the verge of bankruptcy and the World Trade Center sat largely vacant, unable to find companies to fill its large office spaces.

We’ve all been there. The train is coming into the station, and you grab your MetroCard and quickly try and swipe it at a turnstile.

"Please Swipe Again". "Please Swipe Again". "Insufficient Fare".

The last two words are killer. You think to yourself “I swear I had a balance…

I’m not a math person, but oddly enough I love seeing math like this used in real life. It makes those 12* years I spent in a math class worth it.

No offense to Jonathan or anything because he’s the love of my life. But. Sometimes I look to my future and get kind of disappointed that I’m not going to be a big fat tattooed piece of shit lesbian living somewhere urban and bullying straight people.

I never knew other people felt like this. 

Do what you want. Don’t give a shit what people think.
