Want out of this relationship

Social Share

Dear Christine,
After living with a man for almost two years, I have become increasingly aware that we are definitely not meant for each other.
There are just too many areas of disagreement.
I am not saying that this is his fault, but what makes the situation so impossible is that he would not ask for help even if he knew it could save his life, or the life of someone he loves, because he is too proud.
To ask for help would be to admit that he did not have all the answers.
My problem is that I do not know how to ease out of this relationship. If he ever listened he would have picked up many clues
but he does not.
I am now attracted to another man and want to be free to live my own life. I cannot keep procrastinating because he has to know.

Dear M.C.,
You’re right! You cannot keep on procrastinating. Things will not get easier as time goes by; on the other hand, they will get harder.
There is really no easy way to break up a relationship, unless by some miracle the feeling is mutual.
This man is bound to be hurt but he will be less hurt if you blame the problems on the simple fact of the differences between your two personalities. This keeps it from being a personal attack on him.
It seems to me that, like many men, he is not in touch with his feelings. Unless he can find the humility to be able to accept help, he’s not apt to change.
