The one I fell in love with, but can’t seem to find while we’re visiting? The actual prospect of breaking up simply terrifies me, inflicting that on another person. Is there a chance things will actually get better if we move forward with this?And yet, by staying with her, even though I’m not sure I want to, isn’t that kind of a being a jerk to her as well? She seems committed, and I only feel it when I’m not physically near her. I’m not even sure I’ll want to get out there and try the nightmare that is dating again if I break things off. Like others who’ve been in his position, he should have ended the relationship long before it reached this point.Pride doesn’t help in times like this, it only hurts.The thing is, just sticking around doesn’t mean you’re a better person.
Our brains are prone to a host of psychological effects and fallacies that convince us that we damn good and well that I needed to break up with my girlfriend – for years longer than I should have.
Other times, people try to avoid breaking up with their partners because they worry about what it says about them.
One of the most common examples of this are people who realize they are no longer attracted to their partners.
And nine times out of ten, what they’re asking for is permission to break up with their significant other…
because they can’t manage to convince themselves that they need to.
