Break Up Letter

Sample Break Up Letter

Dear [Person Name],

I wanted to tell you this in person, but I just couldn’t.

I can’t look you in the eyes while trying to tell you the reasons why we should not be together anymore. Reasons that may not make sense to you, not that they perfectly make sense to me either.

But I have to attempt at least because you have the right to know. We both do.

[Write a paragraph as to why you think that a breakup is needed. Be compassionate and gentle in your depiction.]

I really hope that you understand why we have to break up and why it had to be in a letter. I truly hope that we can remain friends. It would mean a lot to me.

I want to ask you for a favor, for the sake of the good times and what it all means to you. Write me back. Don’t call. Don’t show up on my doorstep. Tell me that you understand, and if you can’t, at least appreciate my point of view even if you disagree.

We will meet eventually, and when we do, I want us to smile at each other, like friends, like friends always do.
