Breakup, Breaking up with someone over text can be difficult. It’s hard to know how the other person is feeling and it’s even harder when they don’t respond.
Unfortunately, breakups aren’t as simple as they used to be. Today, it’s commonplace to get a breakup text message instead of a phone call or in-person confrontation. Regardless of how you find out about your partner’s decision, here are five ways to respond to break up text messages that will help you save face and start the healing process sooner rather than later.
1) I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to hurt you.
I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to hurt you.
Please know that I care about you and only want what’s best for you.
You deserve someone who will love and appreciate you the way you deserve to be loved. Someone who sees your worth even when they don’t feel good enough themselves.
2) Thank you for your honesty
I appreciate your honesty and understanding. I hope you are doing well. If there’s anything I can do to help, please let me know. I don’t want this text to be the last we talk about this. Is there a time when it might work for us to get together? You’re an important person in my life and I would love to see you if possible.
3) I need some time to think about this
Hey, I need some time to think about this. I don’t want to jump into anything and regret it later.
I really care about you, but I’m not ready for a relationship right now.
I think it’s best if we just go back to being friends for now.
I think we should end things for good because it’s not fair to either of us if we’re not going anywhere with this right now.
Maybe we can talk about this in the future if the timing is better?
It was nice while it lasted, but I don’t see where this is going and I think it’s time that we move on from each other.
4) Can we still be friends?
It’s always hard when you break up with someone, and you often don’t know how to respond. You could write them off completely, or try to make the break up as amicable as possible by responding with yes if they ask if you want to stay friends. Here are some other helpful responses that might be able to help you through a breakup.
1) I’m sorry this didn’t work out – it’s a shame we couldn’t make it work. I hope that you find what you’re looking for.
2) It’s not you, it’s me: Another good way to soften the blow is telling your ex-partner that it isn’t about them, but about you. If you’ve been feeling unhappy in your relationship for a while now, let them know before things turn sour between the two of you. Hopefully, they’ll understand and wish you all the best in your future endeavors!
3) I can’t give up my life/friends/family: It may sound harsh at first glance, but sometimes being upfront can really help a situation like this go more smoothly.
5) I’m not ready to talk about this right now
