My Best Breakup SMS

Sometimes you go on a date or two with someone and while he or she may be very nice, for whatever reason, you do not want to go out again. It happens and some of us might be afraid to admit this to the person that we no longer wish to see. Such situations can lead to confusion, frustration and accepting dates out of guilt.

I have therefore applied the management technique of the “yes sandwich” to breakups via SMS. I think it is kind, clear and effective. Feel free to use it!

“Hello [Insert name here], I had a great time with you on [day you went out]! Not only are you adorable, you are very nice! I really like you but I do not want to move to girlfriend/boyfriend mode. I don’t really know why, I must not be ready or maybe there was not the right chemistry. I hope you are not upset. It was lovely meeting you!

I think it’s better to be honest. I wish you all the best with your [insert current project here].”

An then, with a clear conscience, on to the next!

  1. I like this – I always try to be honest with people when I don’t want to move forward. I think it’s just the nice thing to do, instead of just disappearing like so many ball-less people do 🙂
