been a long time lurker around these boards and i figured this place is as good as any to ask about this. now i know i may not come off as a nice person asking this but i was wondering if anyone can tell me how to make my gf break up with me instead of me breaking up with her? i mean i've been a complete jerk to her the last couple of weeks. very distant and indifferent and yet she's still with me. we currently live together so maybe that's one of the reasons she's not willing to let go very easily. what can i do to make her sick of me? i've even been acting unreasonably jealous when she's with any guy friends and she apologises to me instead of telling me to fuck off. we've been together for just under a year and i really want to get out of it but i feel like if i break up with her, i will hurt her deeply. i figured if i could get her to break up with me instead she might not end up hurting as much. any advice? i just want to leave her but hurt her as little as possible and it's not that there is anyone else but i just don't want to be in a relationship anymore. i want to be single again.
