Ending a relationship is not something to be taken lightly, especially around the holidays. If you are planning on ending your relationship then here are some tips to help you do it.

You need to determine whether you are fully ready to part with your partner, or if you are just trying to save your relationship.
2. Plan a way out before even bringing up the subject. It is best to go in prepared so before you even mention a possible break up to your partner or your family, think of how you will go about making your leave,
3. Plan it out with a neutral third party that you can trust. Friends and family on both sides will have hidden agendas, intentional or otherwise. Try to seek some neutral advice, like from the internet, on what exactly you should do. Leaving a two month long relationship is much different then leaving a two, or twenty year relationship so you need to plan properly.

6. Never talk ill of your ex. You do not want to foster any negative emotions between you and your ex, regardless of how or why the relationship failed. If it was bad, then just do not say anything, if it had it's good points then mention those. Like the saying goes, if you do not have anything nice to say, do not say anything at all.
