  • Men don't ever get the point without you hurting their feelings. Be straight forward with them and maybe he will get it. Gosh I hate men that are so mushy and smothering those are the ones that usually dont get it

  • You should not try to get through to them They understand what you mean but just do not want to accept it. You just get out after that and they will heal and be able to move on too since they have no other choice.

  • sometimes you have to be straight forward, some people get the hints, but act like they don't. So instead of wasting theirs and your time I would be honest.

  • I had an ex who was so in love w/me, i would try to break it off w/him & he would tell me that i did love him that i just didnt know it yet, it got to the point to where i started being so mean to him, he just didnt understand, i stopped answering his calls and avoided him , i should have just done that from the beggining when i had broke it off.

  • There's no way to avoid hurting their feelings. You just have to be honest and hope they're understanding.

  • I really don't think that it's even possible to tell them and not hurt their feelings at the same time. If it was the other way around, how would you feel?
