The Break-Up Email

Hey A****.  This is going to be a difficult email to read, as it is for me writing it.  You may not understand it or agree with it but it's something I need to do.  I am choosing to write it because this is the best way I know how to articulate my thoughts and feelings.  An email may be tacky and for that I apologize.

I'm going to have to call it quits on our communications.  The last couple of days I've spent reflecting on myself and what I actually want and need.  And right now a relationship isn't one of the them.  Among some reasons is the distance thing.  I know I told you that I thought I could do a long distance one, but I don't see myself ever traveling outside the northern suburbs to meet anyone, friend or otherwise.

I'm glad I'm realizing this now before we go any further.  I don't want to lead you on or make you miss out on your perfect match.  She's out there; she's just not me.  Sorry.

Best of luck with your search for Mrs.  A*****Man.

I think that's a good way of putting it Julie!

Good job! Don't forget what I said about safely searching for Mr. Right!

PS You didn't owe him as much of an explanation as you gave him, but I think that you felt like you did! :)

That was a great email. If you ever want to talk just the two of us about online dating, let me know. I know about it...I've been there and did it!
