Reasons to Break Up and End a Relationship

The best reasons to break up are when you realize that you no longer love your boyfriend or partner and don't want to be with him anymore. The early sign that it is time to say goodbye and end a relationship is when you start to question yourself. It's when you start wondering what you are doing to yourself and where you are heading in the relationship.

But the "I don't love you anymore" or "I'm not in love with you anymore" doesn't seem to be enough to justify your decision. So you need more concrete reasons because ending a relationship is hard. This is especially if it is a long term relationship, even it's been a bad and unhappy one.
