How to End an Online Relationship Gently
If you've been dating online, you have probably seen how amazing it can really be. You have the chance to really connect and get to know someone who lives thousands of miles away. With the great opportunities that dating online presents, it can also have its share of downfalls. For instance, what if you've been talking to someone online for a while and you decide that they are not the one for you or you meet someone who is incredible? How do you end the other relationship without really hurting someone who may have started to care for you? Here are some tips on how to end an online relationship gently.
One of the most hurtful things you could do is simply ignore the person. Although the anonymity and the ability to hide online make it very tempting, it's just not the right thing to do. Think about it this way – if you had started to care for someone and suddenly they just vanished into thin air, you would not only be worried and upset but you would be angry as well. There would be no closure for you and that is not something you want to do to someone else. Let's not mention the laws of karma! Rather than avoiding them, you're going to have to step up and tell them the truth.
