The Reasons Why People Stay In Relationships Even When They Want To Break Up

By

I've said it about one trillion times before, but the whole concept of "breaking up" with someone you're in a serious, committed relationship with--who you once really loved from the bottom of your heart--has always really confused me.

I mean, how do you go from spending virtually every night falling asleep in somebody's arms to cutting that person out of your life completely? The whole concept baffles me.

That being said, people do it all the time. Just as you're reading this article, I guarantee there are people across the globe sitting their significant others down to have a "talk" about the end of their respective relationships.

But I'm not interested in those tough people. No, I'm interested in the weak wusses. The people like me who have a hard time pulling the trigger when it comes to ripping out the heart of someone they once cared about, and don't know exactly how to go about it.

A few of them have shared their impending breakup dilemmas here. Give 'em a good read. I promise they won't disappoint.

They guilt you into staying.

You're just tired of how they treat you.

Everybody likes them, except you.

You're totally stuck.

You know their friends are going to hate you.
