While the dumpee may be feeling a slight blow to the ego and embarrassed, he or she will ultimately appreciate your honesty and respect you more because of it.However, if you’ve only gone on one or two dates, I don’t think you have to officially end things.
In this case, it is often best to decide to end the relationship early and talk to your partner about it.
Dear Becca, After going on 4 dates with a guy, I noticed that I wasn’t feeling romantically interested in him, despite feeling like we had a great time together.
Since you only went on four dates, I don’t think you needed to set up a time to meet him in person to end it.
I’m so glad you sent me this question, because I know so many people struggle with this issue.
I didn’t want to set a date just to break up with him, and we weren’t at the point where I could just pop over and have a chat with him.
