1. We’re too different
As you can see, there are many reasons for breaking up. Most of the time, couples break up simply because they don’t have enough in common and not because they don’t love each other anymore! Often, they still love each other but they find that the relationship can’t continue or isn’t feasible over the long run.
2. I’ve met someone new
About 17% of young people leave because they’ve cheated on their partner (12%) or met someone new (5%). When that happens, it can be a sign that something about the relationship isn’t working anymore. It can then be hard to trust the other person again, and it’s sometimes better to break up.
3. I’m experiencing violence
Only 1% of young people break up because they’re suffering physical violence. Nowadays, violence is more likely to be psychological, but that hurts a lot too! And sometimes a psychologically violent partner becomes physically violent, especially at the time of the breakup. If you decide to break up with a violent person, make sure that you’re well supported and protected. If necessary, call us!
