How to Successfully End a Dead-End Relationship During the Holidays

It’s that time of year again. The nights are growing longer, the days colder, and Christmas has vomited all over us like that one time Aunt Judy had too much port with her pasta. Which means it’s the perfect time to sever your dead-end relationship like a samurai with a chainsaw. Sure, they say it’s wrong to break up with someone over the holidays. But we beg to differ. We think it’s much better to call it quits now before you get sucked into the whirlpool of another year and end up going out for a pack of cigarettes 20 years from now and drive off a cliff.

But what’s the best way to do the deed? With emotions running high around the holidays, it’s crucial that you dump your dead weight with care. So study our playbook below and choose the exit strategy that works best for you. Because life is too short not to leave your lover while drunk on eggnog without a word of warning on Christmas Eve.
