    Posted: Jul/22/2012 at 10:32pm
I have been dating my gf for about a year and nine months and I no longer want to date her. I have concluded that I dont want to marry the girl and feel as if now I am just postponing the inevitable. I have no idea how to dump her though and am wondering if any of you guys can help me out. She is madly in love with me and it is going to suck either way. Any advice to help ease this process would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Probably just go with a nicely worded text message, and then never speak to her again.

First, I agree with LittleShooey, a snowboarding forum is not the place for a Dear Abby question.  Frankly I am surprised you haven't been flamed incessantly for this thread.  If you have to solicit advice on how to break up with a girl on a snowboard web site you probably do not have the balls or common sense to do it the right way, which is in person.

Second, since we're here, I disagree with grapeape.  Breaking up via text message?  Weak, very weak.  Be a man and do it face to face.  You may found out she is not "madly in love" with you after all.

And last, regarding this:

Yes, this is a place to ask for advice.  Advice about snowboard gear, resorts, etc. but relationship advice?  I think not.

If you're under 25 (and it sounds like you are) just cheat on her. You know why divorce is so high? Because young fools mistake lust for love.

Just man up and break up with her face to face.  Do yourselves both a favor and don't let this drag on.

I'm surprised there are actual advice in here...I was hoping for something more...

Yeah....Probably not the best place to ask for this kind of advice but hana24 is right you just gotta man up and tell her. Just don't do it with one of those overused lines just be honest.

If she's truly in love with you, you need to let her down gently so you don't hurt her feelings.  Girls can be kinda emotional in these situations.
 
Start with subtle hints.  Change your Facebook status to "single" or better yet "stuck in a relationship I can't get out of".  Ask her to help you build your match.com profile.  Take her shopping for a ring or necklace and ask her to try stuff on, but then question how it would look on someone taller/with a different skin tone/prettier.
 
All these little clues will set the tone for a more serious conversation in the future.  Which I recommend you have with her on Skype or Facetime.

this shouldn't need advice...  just do it...  tell her how it is, and let things fall where they do after...

as for in response to having a thread about this, i don't see why not...  true, this is a snowboarding forum, and we all share a common interest in that...  but many other things are discussed in this forum other than snowboarding...  we discuss cars, our dogs, we even have a randomness thread.  why can't someone with a real question come here and ask?  man, starting to fear anything i say or post here will me flagged as trolling, or needs to be locked out, or flagged as spam...  i think you guys need to lighten up a little...  or make a sticky saying "keep all conversation on snowboarding topic"...  and the rules about that.

^Thank you. Thats what I was thinking. I see so much random non snowboarding topics on these forums I figured I would be able to get some friendly advice from the other members of this community. Apparently not...

I am going to do it face to face and not over facebook or text as some have suggested. I was just seeing if anyone else has ever had to let someone go that they truly cared for and did not want to hurt. Looks like the majority fell in love at first sight

WTF are you talking about?  You did get some advice, more than I would have expected especially considering the type of forum this is and what it is not... it's not a love-lorn-dating-advice forum.

I'm surprised you didn't get flamed more for this thread.  You should create the same thread in EL, I'd like to see the response there.  Seriously, asking strangers on a snowboarding forum how to break up with a girl?  What's next, a What should I wear today? or Who should I ask to the prom? thread?  You have a brain, correct?  Use it.  The lack of common sense here is amazing.

And what's the Looks like the majority fell in love at first sight crap about, who said anything about love at first sight?

The boardroom says general chat. I would consider this general chat. I am just thinking most people have been in a relationship and wondering how they may have ended it. I meant by that love at first sight thing that nobody on here has ever had to end a serious relationship and just continued on to marriage.

 What kind of forum is this then? I see people talking about food, randomness, gas, hypothetical questions, what they have bought recently, and many more general chat things. 

All I really want is some advice or maybe to relate with someone who has been in my shoes.

And I am thankful for it. If I am an Emo then you are an A$$hole. Didn't your parents ever teach you if you have nothing nice to say don't say anything at all?

Dude, this is an internet forum. That rule does not apply. Have you never been on a forum before. They are not the nicest places. TruSnow is generally pretty cool, but I gotta agree with Ctoma. Maybe you should have asked "How can I break up with my GF because I want a GF I can snowboard with". Less flaming, more on topic. That being said, just do it. Rip the bandage off quickly and give her a few weeks before you start dating someone else. It's just courteous.

I did!  Because he wasn't worth my time plus he was in the military so it was hard to get in contact with him or maybe he was just ignoring me, but anyways caught that bastard cheating for about a year and yet he still denies it.  He then got with her for a few years but broke up after he caught her cheating on him with the maintenance guy.  Talk about karma!  LOL

Haha, I would of done it in person if I knew that the time I drove up to Washington from Cali that he was with her at the same time I was up there to visit him which was why he wasn't spending much time with me but unfortunately I didn't find out until she started postings pics of them all over her Myspace then his.  I think it's more unpatriotic to cheat.  LOL

This is what is different from EL and this place.

EL is an actual snowboard community, where the members genuinely care about the well being of the regular posters, regardless if it is snowboard related or not. Here? Not so much.

Plus, it's summer, snowboard related threads are slow to come by, so obviously more "real-life" threads will pop up as people still try to stay connected to the forums.

Kinda blown away that people shot this guy down so fast.

EL is an actual snowboard community, where the members genuinely care about the well being of the regular posters, regardless if it is snowboard related or not. Here? Not so much.

Plus, it's summer, snowboard related threads are slow to come by, so obviously more "real-life" threads will pop up as people still try to stay connected to the forums.

Kinda blown away that people shot this guy down so fast.

/rant
The people that shut him down also regularly comment on non-snowboard related threads... Confused


Yes I do and I do post on non-snowboard related threads often but seriously, a how do I break up with my girlfriend thread?  Summer is a slow time for snowboarding talk but this is junior high type crap.  If someone in their late teens/early twenties doesn't know how to break up with a girl... well, enough said.

I've lurked on EL long enough to know it's a close-knit group, members actually know each other personally.  Do you really think this thread would fly on EL?  The flaming would have started with the very first reply and it would be vicious.  This is just 1 reason why Sierra/TruSnow/TroutDoors is a joke on EL.

Although we did get a good story out of AngryMidget from this debacle.

What is EL?  And asking random people how to break up with a gf of almost two years is tacky.

Eh, agreed. I just have more of a problem with people saying "ZOMG you can't post anything unrelated to snowboarding since it is a SNOWBOARD forum." Especially, when there are numerous other threads unrelated to snowboarding, especially in The Board Room.

With that said, ya it's a little weird, and high school relationship BS usually gets flamed, but people do give advice. Check out The Loving Situation thread on EL, and you'll see.
I'm surprised you haven't gotten more plugged into EL, seeing as you're not a points hussy and actually contribute to this community. A couple other Sierra people have made the jump over and seem to like it.

Haha, I would of done it in person if I knew that the time I drove up to Washington from Cali that he was with her at the same time I was up there to visit him which was why he wasn't spending much time with me but unfortunately I didn't find out until she started postings pics of them all over her Myspace then his.  I think it's more unpatriotic to cheat.  LOL
 
The other girl was being patriotic, putting a smile on a soldier.


midge should've joined them for a threesome and really put a smile on a soldier....jk
 
Great point Hana, couldn't have said it better myself.

Haha look at the raging responses!
give her the respect and break up face to face.
as per a question of do people really break up over text, YES
over the phone YES, Over email YES, understandably that's when shit hits the fan and you just want to avoid the unnecessary complaining.

oh yeah forgot the FB breakup silly me.

I have been dating my gf for about a year and nine months and I no longer want to date her. I have concluded that I dont want to marry the girl and feel as if now I am just postponing the inevitable.


Say to her:

"WE have been dating for about a year and nine months and I no longer want to date you. I have concluded that I dont want to marry YOU and feel as if now I am just postponing the inevitable."
