Are you in a relationship that just isn't working?
Are you looking to avoid their family and spending money during the Christmas season?
Why don't you do both of you a favor and end it before the holidays!?!?
It sounds awful - but isn't it better than "faking it"???? Not just faking it with them, but potentially their family as well?
If you honestly believe that you and your current boyfriend/girlfriend would be better off if you moved on from each other, consider being on The Morning Playhouse segment, "Break Up Before The Holidays".
Interested parties should contact Zero at firstname.lastname@example.org - include the story of how you and your partner met, how long you have been together, as well as why you would like to end the relationship.
