Break Up - Read These or Share Your Own!
What are some signs that your relationship
is heading towards a break up? Well, some obvious clues would be when your
partner stops calling you, or doesn't call as often, and starts dating others.
I would think that would be a definite give away right there!
But sometimes the signs of a break up
are more subtle and often go unnoticed until after the fact... and then we
sit back, smack ourselves on the forehead, and say "Wow, I should have seen
Here, below, are some signs of a break

""Breaking-up" Is Hard To Do
by Kim Hays, Staff Counselor, Student Counseling
first signs of a "break-up" can often seem like a bad dream as you notice
you’re arguing more and more, and enjoying your time together less.
It’s hard to let go when you’ve invested so much in a relationship.
Too often a "break-up" takes its toll on our self-esteem. It’s very
common to blame yourself when a relationship ends and to think that if only
I were sexier, or more interesting, I would still have him or her in my life.
"Break-ups" are also hard because they can disrupt your entire social life.
The places you used to go, and the mutual friends you shared, can now become
awkward reminders of times passed. Worse yet, you may find that you failed
to invest enough time in other friendships so you’ve lost your love
and your best friend at a time when there aren’t other friends to help
you pick up the pieces."
(on breaking up in the work place)
"....Editors said they didn’t
want to get involved in advising staffers about their relationships. And
they shouldn’t, said Blackwell. But sometimes involvement may be
unavoidable, like the editor confronted with a female reporter who’d
just learned she was pregnant by a male reporter. They wanted to get married,
but had no vacation time left so they had to explain their situation to the
editor, who gave them the extra time.
And sometimes learning of a romance
can be downright embarrassing, as one editor found when he walked into a
room and found two staffers in flagrante delicto.
Just as the signs of a romance can
be seen, so can the signs of a break-up. One editor recalled the discomfort
in the newsroom when a couple broke up, but noted there was nothing management
could, or should, do unless it became a performance issue — for instance,
not getting to work on time.
Bob Unger, executive editor of the
St. Joseph (Mo.) News-Press, said when he hired a reporter who was dating
someone already on his staff, he suggested to them that they realize that
it could be difficult for them to work together if their relationship ended.
“If it does go bad, don’t bring it into the newsroom,” he
"Q. What are warning signs of a
My boyfriend and I have been going
out 2.5 years. Things have been going great, but lately, he's been kind of
reserved around me, like hiding something or backing off. I am still happy.
We fight, but we always have (even when we were friends), its just our
relationship, and we mean nothing by it, it's just good debate fun. He buys
me jewelry and comes and sees my performances, so i know i'm not just there
for 'one thing'. one thing that bothers me, is that he never wants to go
out, when we get together, its at his house, or at a party, he never wants
to go to the movies or out to eat. He also tries to be comforting to me when
i have a rough day, but at the same time, he'll yell at me and tell me to
'suck it up' and 'stick up for myself' and gets angry when i cry or get hurt!
I'm completely perplexed! I have no clue what to do! He still tells me that
he loves me, but i'm not sure what's going on! I could totally use a guy's
perspective on this!
A. It sounds like he is maybe to
comfortable in your relationship. The spark is gone, no longer is he trying
to impress you. I don't think he is going to break up with you, I just think
that he is way to comfortable around you. the same thing happened to me and
my gf, we got way to comfortable around each other and at the end of it 6
years later we split up because our relationship had just gotten to boring
and it felt like we missed out on having all this fun with our friends. The
grass is greener on the other side effect. I think you guys should talk about
this and fix it before it gets to the situation my ex and I are in now. Just
tell hiim that you want to go out and do stuff with him and if he isn't into
that kind of stuff find out why.
Also if he yells at you when you
are having a rough day maybe he is also going through a rough day too. But
that isn't an excuse for him to yell, you should let him know how you hate
it when he does that and communicate your feelings more to

POV, this might be the sign that you're willing to let yourself go but you
must deal with the right partner. Also, it is a period of sexual stress.

"I am very confused. I have been
dating a wonderful person for about 8 months and we have had a very open,
honest, healthy relationships. I am 26 and he is 29. No bumps, barely any
arguments. We spoke about our future and how happy we were to enter the next
phase (rings, weddings, living together, etc..) The only arugment we encountered
was about the fact that he didn't say "I love you". He has never said these
words to anyone. I was feeling it and we were talking about such serious
topics, I was uncertain as to why he didn't say it. He responded with his
actions speak loud and I trusted that- bc they did and this was backed up
with him discussing future plans. We were so so happy about our future together.
Then OUT OF THE BLUE, he flipped. He was overwhelmed with his professional
life and then he said he wanted space, feels pressure (meanwhile he put the
pressure on himself). He needed time. I said how much time, what do you mean
do you need a week, a month, 5 months and he replied "i hope it doesn't take
that long". What does he have an agenda in mind? I said what do you think
I am going to be here waiting? He replied "i hope you would wait but I can
understand why you wouldn't" He said "let me flip out". So I just tried my
best to hold it together and bring him to his senses but he said that "he
didnt want to be in this relationship anymore". So we left the conversation
- broken up. We were done. My fear is that he wanted space and he knows the
person I am and I really don't do well with space, thus his only choice to
think about things was to break up no matter how cruel and painful it was.
He had ample time to bring this up to me and we could have worked it out
but he showed no warning signs of a break up or him being unhappy. If anything
he kept it in-zero signs. This happened 5 days ago. I did nothing wrong.
I was faithful and devoted in our relationship and I am not blaming myself
one bit. I called on Sunday and he never returned my
Does he need
Will he comes to his
Its not like him to ignore my call-
does this mean he is over the relationship or is he trying to sort through
When we were breaking up he agreed
that he could be making the biggest mistake of his life. Someone please give
me some advice. Will calling push him further away?"
" What I don't like should be simple
enough to follow...
....I'm not one for handing out
sympathy, I dislike it when people come to me to get some. My room is never
clean. Uncooperative hair, having to wear a bra, being without Nathan, when
people (especially men) do not leave me alone, late-ness, my terrible habit
of ditching, annoyance, the random pork in cans of beans, not having any
jewelry, un-even nails. I HATE when people don't recognize the tell-tale
signs of a break up, are you mental? Large women in small apparel, speaking
of large, I hate the following large items, pj pants, curling irons, eyebrows,
voices, workloads. And, sex."
"6 signs of a break up - MSN - Filed

Once again I gotta come out and
complain against something because it’s just way too stupid. Human beings
have stopped evolving, in terms of intelligence. I’m basing my claim
on this stupid MSN article titled “6 signs He’s About to Dump
You”. I didn’t think that anyone would write about something so
stupid. I was wrong. Ok, lets check out these reasons.
#1 Your Date Morphs Into Group
Ok, women, the world doesn’t revolve around you. Sometimes, guys want
to do stuff with his buddies. Don’t give him some personal space and
he just might dump you. If you want something dedicated to you, buy yourself
#2 He’s Mr. Extreme Make
Ok, so now a guy’s caring about his looks as much as you care about
yours. How do we know you’re not cheating? 3 hours in front of a mirror?
You have about as much chance as cheating on him that he has on you.
#3 He’s cranky and critical.
Your boyfriend might just be turning old. Ever think of that? I’m cranky
and critical nearly every day of my life. Yet I don’t have an urge to
dump my girlfriend.
#4 Something’s Different in
Son-of-a-bitch! Maybe he’s tired! Ever think of that? I mean late nights
every day of the week will tire anyone out! Sheesh, give the guy a break,
#5 His Body Language Says ‘Get
Me Out Of Here’.
After all these previous complaints that I’ve heard, I’d want to
get out too.
#6 He’s hard to reach in every
sense of the word.
That’s pretty vague, so the article gave an example. ‘Do you find
yourself calling him more than you used to? Is it taking him a day to respond
to your emails when before he’d IM in 10 minutes?’ Ok, stop calling
the guy!! Maybe he needs some me time! And be grateful he’s responding
to your emails at all. Sheesh! He’s busy! I’d hate to be at work
and have some bitch call me every ten seconds. I’M WORKING! Leave me
alone. And what kinda guy Instant Messages 10 minutes after receiving an
email? As if any guy had THAT much time on his hands."
