“Avoid the drama”
It’s happened before, maybe even to you if this isn’t your first affair: you started hooking up with the beautiful coworker who’d been checking you out ever since she got hired at the company, and now you’re in too deep. You need to end the relationship for both of your sakes, or you just might go insane. This can be tough, it’s true, but for her sake and yours you need to let her know that you feel the relationship has run its course, whether it was just sexual or was even romantic at times. There’s no shame in it; humans can tend to be very transient and moving on quickly is a characteristic, especially of men. If you get bored easily, that’s perfectly all right. But how can you break up with your other woman without creating any drama?
“Just agree to whatever she is saying and skip the drama”
There are usually around three reasons you might want to break it off with a woman you’ve been having a fling with: either one or both of you has started developing romantic feelings for each other that are inconvenient, or you might have found someone else that you want to sleep with. In a worst-case scenario, your wife or girlfriend found out what you were doing and you have to end it for that reason. There are ways to handle breaking it off with a fling in each of these situations.
If it’s a mutual agreed-upon break, it’s probably going to go down without a hitch – bring up the topic and let her know that you feel things might be getting a little too serious for the kind of relationship that you want at this time. You don’t necessarily have to elaborate further; it’s usually not necessary and if you do, it might complicate things further. This kind of mature, honest statement will be sure to smooth things over with a woman who might otherwise be a little upset about you breaking off an affair that had been good for both of you. If you’re breaking off the relationship because you want to pursue a fling with another woman, don’t be uncouth enough to tell her that. No woman wants to hear that, and saying it will make you come off as insensitive. Let her know that you feel the relationship has run its course and you don’t want to meet up anymore. There’s no need to become angry or rude in return. However, if you are breaking it off because your wife or girlfriend found out what was going on, it’s best to be firm and blunt. Let her know that you no longer wish to pursue any sort of relationship and while avoiding coming off as rude, let her know that you don’t want to be contacted as it could be detrimental to repairing your committed relationship. If it was just a casual hookup type of situation, most women won’t take this poorly, so long as you’re not rude and don’t phrase it in a way that makes it sound as she’s not as “worthwhile” or anything like that as your wife or girlfriend.
