People use a lot of creativity to lure someone into a relationship but the laziness in ending the relationship can just be unfair to the other person. It is usually like the relationship diluted the creativity out of someone and just finds any excuse his or her brains can think of to dump you.

Can you imagine if your feet were swept by statements like “I will love you until Lake Victoria dries up” but even before Bwaise floods dry up, he is talking about, “ I am sorry but I can’t be with you because my job is so demanding” or “my bank account is not fit for the relationship”. And the newest excuse by a certain celebrity is, “ I can’t marry you because I have to rebuild my late mother’s graveyard.”

I wonder who is worse, the person who just walks away without saying a thing or someone who gives you a laughable excuse? Both don’t deserve a relationship for eternity but like they say, “you will not regret what you did not say”. Its better to walk away with dignity than spending a sleepless night just to come up with an unforgivable excuse for breaking up with someone.
And as the year nears the end, dear lovers, let’s not crossover with this shameful mentality. If you felt like she or he is not the person for you, just say it and be courteous enough to tell her why because then she will learn from that to be a better partner to the next suitor. Then both parties get to win, you proudly walk away as the ‘worst ex’ but she learns a few tips on how to keep the next relationship.

A few people will testify that ending a relationship is a nightmare but hey, it’s not like they are going to crown you the best person to end a relationship. Either way, an ex will probably be referred to as a monster, nightmare and other ugly names but that’s love’s cycle. What has a beginning sometimes has an end too. Just keep it real.
