How to stop dating someone

06 Feb

This isn’t easy, as getting to know someone takes time.

On average it takes about two years for the full honeymoon period to blow over, then you begin seeing flaws in the other person.

Plus, in my own personal experience, I've often found that ghosting makes the breakup process longer.

This is because there's no real closure, and as a result, the person who gets ghosted is left wondering what they did wrong for much longer than they would be if they'd just been broken up with straight-up.

If it's a very, very casual thing, a simple text is really all that you need to do.

Many times it does work out and you do end up spending the rest of your life with the one you love – it does happen. But the fact is that, statistically, there is always a possibility of the relationship running its course.

The trick is figuring out earlier on in a relationship whether or not the two of you have a real shot of making it last.

How to stop thinking about someone You may have your own reasons to stop thinking of someone. Do you want to get over that person or do you just want to stop obsessing over them? It’s easy to fantasize about circumstances and happy reunions.

While the reasons to stop missing someone may be plenty, the ways are all similar. Sometimes, clarity is all you need to progress and face reality. Don’t ignore the incident or avoid thinking about it. Spend a day or two brooding over it by yourself and once you feel saturated by thoughts, let go and move on. Instead, give up on plotting ways to contact them and accept the fact that you are looking for ways to stop thinking of them.
