• How to be a Heartbreaker

    I’m dating a boy that’s been in love with me for five years…or thinks he has. He’s been my best friend for two years and gotten me through some of the toughest times of my life but…we don’t have the same outlook on life. I have the optimism to match my huge dreams and goals of being a Broadway actress and he’s negative about everything. I’m a free spirit and he’s a homebody, likes to be comfortable. I like adventure.

    I don’t think he’s my person. Where’s the handsome traveller who wants to go with me all over the world, camping in dark forests and running through the streets of European cities, climbing the mountains of Asia? Where’s the boy with big dreams too?

    Not the one who wants to marry me in two years then move me to Florida to be his wife with two kids to take care of.

    How do you tell someone who loves you so much that they are not your person? Don’t get me wrong, I love the boy…but I’m not in love with him. There’s no skip in my heart or catch in my breath or shiver in my spine…

    I’ve been in love before with the wrong person, but at least I was in love hard.

    How do I be a heartbreaker?

      You’ve got to tell him any way you can. Unfortunately there’s really no nice way for you to go about it because he’s going to hurt any way you put it. I’m not saying that to make you feel bad, it’s just the truth. However if he’s not right for you, then he’s not right for you, and maybe (plausibly) you’re not right for him. Just tell him. Don’t go deeper into a relationship that you’re unhappy with.
