a moral dilemma
I'm in a relationship with someone i'm not attracted to anymore and want to end it....is it better that i stay with her and hope the attraction comes back or should i just break it off?

I have been dating her for about 2 months, and i've wanted to end it for about 2 or 3 weeks.

Her hatred and the hatred of everyone around me...yeah, thats pretty much the main concern. But i do care about her and want to let her off as easily as possible. I was thinking about trying to find someone else for her before i break it off, but who knows....The worst part is that she's bipolar and completely unpredictable. I don't know if she'll cry or stab me with a spork...

upon further reflection, i think i would probably deserve being stabbed with a spork. it would be better than seeing her cry.

I advise that you either tell the truth, or if you are good at it, lie and stick with the lie.

Lieing is good as long as you make them believe it. Nothing hurts more then being lied to in a break up.

Just think about how you would want to be treated in that situation.

if i were you i would tread as softly as i could around this .bi-polar people take every thing as an extreme is there any way the two of you can remain friends??if so that would help soften the blow try telling her that shes to good for you yada yada yada also adding that you still care about her and you hope that she will call if she needs anything even just to talk.
hope that helps

This may or may not be too late, but I would use the "I need to find myself routine" as suggested above. The thing is, being lied to is bad, but feeling unatractive seems to be worse.
If you can get away with it, make up good story, and end it that way.
This way the girl still feels good about herself, and thinks of you as some kind of noble monk.

This probably is too late but here goes.

Coming from a relationship where there were lies from the other party I would have to say be honest with her. Use tact yes but above all else be honest. If she cares for you very much she'll get hurt more in the long run if she finds out that you were completely honest with her.

Being honest don't work. Lie your ass off!
