Ending a relationship takes sensitivity and honesty, even when the relationship is solely online. Here are some steps to follow: 1. Consider your reasons: Be clear in your mind why you have decided to end things. This will help in conveying your reasons to him and will keep you firm in your decision. 2. Choose the right time and method: Choose a convenient time when you know he will be free. Decide if you want to do it through a phone call, a video call, an email, or text. However, the best would be a phone or video call as it shows respect for the person on the other side. 3. Be honest, but sensitive: Start by expressing gratitude for the time you've spent together, even if it was only virtual. Be gentle but firm in expressing your intention to end things. Avoid blaming him or hurting his feelings unnecessarily. 4. Stick to the point: Avoid deviating from the topic. It's easy to get sidetracked when breaking this kind of news. Sticking to the point shows respect for his time and feelings. 5. Give him a chance to respond: This is a conversation, not a monologue. Be ready to listen, even if he might be hurt or angry. Try to understand his feelings too. 6. Finalize the conversation positively: Wish him well. It's important to end on a positive note so as not to leave any bad feelings. Remember, everyone deserves courteous treatment. Even though you've not met him in person, remember that there's a real individual at the other end who deserves respect.
