Breaking Up

When you have no contact with your ex, you have far more control over your mood and it gives you that emotional distance that you absolutely need in order to get over the relationship. If you keep maintaining unnecessary contact, time won’t make you feel any better, it will just prolong the entire process.

No one – not your therapist, your mother, your best friend, or an online article – can truly tell you how to know when to breakup. It’s something only you and your partner can decide. But, there are plenty of signs that point away from Merge and, instead, towards Junction.

Maybe we’re so obsessed with the “friend zone” that we’ve over-glorified stories in which those poor, underestimated Romeos win. We’ve created a subculture of men who don’t take “no” for an answer.
