Make up your mind

First of all, you have to be certain this is what you want. It's not fair to toy with your guy's feelings - or your own - so think through your decision to break up and make up your mind.

At what stage in a relationship do you know it's time to end things? It's different for everyone, and only you can know.

"Assuming you have tried to work things out, the stage of the relationship doesn't matter," explains Ariane de Bonvoisin. "It can be after your third date, or after being together for 10 years."

Life coach Natalie Dee agrees that there's no hard and fast rule of judging the end. "It’s simply about being honest, clear, direct and true to yourself and your partner," she says. "Trust your intuition about whether or not this is the right relationship for you."

And once you've made up your mind, don't chicken out!

"My clients often tell me that they stayed in a relationship because it was easier than ending it," Natalie continues. "It was very comfortable, and they were afraid they would never find someone else. But if it doesn’t feel right, then it probably isn't!"
