Stay away from anyplace where groups of art school students arrive in herds and Instagram their mango-cilantro margaritas — they will take notes on their phones and incorporate the dialogue into their webseries. Right before I break up with someone in a bar, I think about all those movies and TV shows where a bartender protagonist has to step away to tend to an angry girlfriend/boyfriend or some other plot point as Tegan and Sara plays in the background, and I am stricken with fear that it will take forever to get drinks and the check. If you're like "First let's hold hands and spoon-feed each other couscous for an hour, then after dinner I'll end it," you are either Leopold or Loeb and seeya in hell.
Because any bar will do, unless it's so crowded that you have to shout.

Chances are, you just realized that you and this person are not really a great fit--they didn't, like, cheat on you with your best friend, run over your dog with their car, and throw your laptop out the window (if they did do this, however, you have every right to make it very, very personal).
In this case, it is often best to decide to end the relationship early and talk to your partner about it.
Yesterday morning I signed onto GChat and received the following message from a friend: “I officially got dumped by someone I wasn’t dating.” Whoo, boy.
Just come like 15 minutes early and have one drink if you feel like it.
Find out how to do so in the gallery below: As a past ghoster and ghost-ee, please, please, please don't ghost--the act of basically just disappearing from someone's life by ignoring them instead of actually breaking up with them--anyone.Apparently, my friend had gone on two dates with a guy — fine dates! And then, out of nowhere, she gets a long, kindly-worded email from him explaining that things weren’t going to work out, but that she was “a nice girl,” etc etc.You know, the kind of email no one should have to be forced to read unless they’ve at least enjoyed some perks of an actual relationship.It's immature, lazy, and just very not-cool overall.Plus, in my own personal experience, I've often found that ghosting makes the breakup process longer.
