best breakup text examples to end a toxic relationship

No one likes getting dumped, but sometimes it's necessary because the only way to find the right relationship is to get out of a bad one.

If you're considering breaking up with someone, it's essential to do it in a way that is respectful and considerate of their feelings. After all, you don't want to leave them feeling blindsided.

One way to do this is to send them a break-up text. A text message is a great way to let them down gently without having a face-to-face encounter. Of course, you'll want to ensure that the text message is respectful and doesn't come across as mean or insensitive.

Here we bring you the best breakup texts whether you want to remain friends or separate ways entirely.

Best Break-up Texts

Here are some examples of the best breakup text messages:

  1. I've been thinking a lot lately. You may probably sense that I've been distant. Even though you are a wonderful person whom I have grown to love and respect, I have given our relationship a lot of thought, and I no longer believe it is the best partnership for me now. I think we should split ways.

  2. I apologize for ending things in this manner; I haven't been content with our relationship for a while. I love you so much, and I'm sorry this will upset you, but I believe we should put our relationship on hold for the time being.

  3. It was nice getting to know you over the past few [days, weeks, and months], but I don’t feel a connection anymore. I wish you luck in the future!

  4. I've realized there's more to me than loving you. I got so used to being your other half, and I completely forgot that I needed to be myself in the first place. I'm sorry, but we can't see each other anymore.

  5. It’s been super fun hanging out with you, but I think I get more of a friend vibe between us. I will love to hang out still if you’re down

  6. We had a great time. But I don't feel like we belong together. Love doesn't live in this long term relationship anymore. It's hard to admit that, but we must say goodbye to each other to live happily ever after.

  7. All I've ever wanted is for you to love me for who I am, not for what you think I should be. But I suppose that's asking too much of you. All done.

  8. I'm sorry we have to part ways. I hope you meet someone who will treat you with the respect and affection you deserve.

  9. Holding on isn't the only aspect of love. There might occasionally be love in letting go. My sweetheart, I want you to find true happiness with someone greater than me because I love you. I'm sorry I put you through so much pain; I want it to end. Please enjoy yourself without me.

  10. You've been moving way too fast with this relationship since it started. I don't think we're on the same page at all. I wouldn't say I like doing this text breakup, but I think it's time I choose my own path.

Small aside. Did you know it is possible to make your profile more attractive in 2 minutes and get more matches every day?

Break up texts for long-term relationships

Managing a relationship is never easy, but it's best to part ways when things become out of control.

Choose one of these best breakup texts to end a long-term relationship.

  1. It’s not that I don’t have feelings for you, but the feelings I once had have changed. Therefore, I don’t think I can continue being with you. I want you to know that I still care about you and will always be here for you when you need me, just not as a girlfriend.

  2. No matter how much I’ve loved you throughout the years, I cannot pretend that this relationship is not toxic anymore. So, I think we should end this now.

  3. This is very hard for me; I chose to say it through text. Life with you has been excellent. I count myself lucky to have such a great boyfriend as you, but I no longer want to stay in this relationship. I feel caged, though not through any actions of yours. I want my freedom.

  4. I wanted to reach out and let you know what's been on my mind lately. While our relationship has been extraordinary and meaningful to me thus far, I am realizing more and more that we both want different things out of life. It would be best to part ways so we can go after our individual goals.

  5. I hope you understand. I've been thinking about this for some time, and despite my efforts to make our relationship work, I can't shake the feeling that we feel more like friends than romantic partners. I've been dreading telling you this as the last thing I'd ever want to do hurt you, but I didn't feel right not saying anything. I think you are incredible and wish you all the best.

  6. We're too young to be in such a serious relationship. I want to have fun and explore other options as well. Sorry I didn't tell you sooner.

  7. I'm sure you feel the same way, but as much fun as I've had the past few weeks, I don't see this working out long-term.

Heart-wrenching Breakup Texts

Sometimes even a serious relationship has to end, and you need something to express your feelings clearly in such situations. Here's how you can break things appropriately:

  1. My heart is shattered. I gave you everything I had, and it still wasn’t good enough for you. It’s over.

  2. Love means never having to say we're sorry. I'm certainly not sorry that we met and fell for each other. It was a wonderful time, but all good things come to an end, and this is it for me.

  3. For the person, you went on a few dates with and aren't interested in: “I loved spending time with you, but I don't think it's going to work in the long run.” or “I had a lot of fun with you, but I don't think we're compatible.

  4. This is my first breakup, and I don't know what to say or do. But I know it has to end now. I'm tired of being taken for granted. I'm tired of the lies. I'm tired of the hurt. I deserve a lot more than this.

  5. I wanted to let you know that my feelings for you are much stronger as a friend than as a romantic partner. Would you like to continue our relationship as friends going forward? I'd love to keep you in my life.

  6. I have loved you with all my heart, but apparently, my heart is not big enough to tolerate this toxic relationship.

  7. I'm walking away because you're too busy finding faults in me and everything I do. I've been covering your flaws for the peace of the relationship, but not anymore. I want us to break up now.

  8. The last few weeks have been really fun hooking up and all. However, I don't see this leading anywhere, and I would love to end it now before any of us get hurt.
