End a dating relationship
Yesterday morning I signed onto GChat and received the following message from a friend: “I officially got dumped by someone I wasn’t dating.” Whoo, boy.
Apparently, my friend had gone on two dates with a guy — fine dates! And then, out of nowhere, she gets a long, kindly-worded email from him explaining that things weren’t going to work out, but that she was “a nice girl,” etc etc.
She moved out of the house she shared with him and moved in with a co-worker of mine.
I just found out that she never broke up with her boyfriend.
Dear Amy: I’ve been dating a woman for about six months now.
We started dating soon after what I thought was her official breakup with her ex-boyfriend.
“I’m not a god damned mind reader.” The fade “is cowardly and at its root, dishonest.” If only the uninterested party would clarify its position in an explicit text, “I will feel validated that you had enough deference for whatever we had (even if it was just one night) to know that it needed to be ended in a mature and thoughtful manner.” As someone who has been in the position of both the fader and the faded, I respectfully disagree.I’ve also recently found out that she has at least two other lovers -- these are people she was seeing while in her prior relationship.I told her I don’t want to date her anymore, and she suggested that we just have a sexual relationship. Strap on your track shoes and get (and stay) away from this one-woman wrecking ball.One of the trickiest aspects of dating is how do you end it with someone you’ve only gone out with once or twice.A recent question posed on Quora echoes these concerns: when it comes to casual dating, is silence better than rejection? When you just….stop…calling (or texting) — and basically disappear off the face of the earth.

I resisted the urge to offer a meaningless platitude such as "you'll be better off..." and instead pretended to be captivated by the drinks menu.
