From ‘Aha!’ to ‘Goodbye!’ – 4 Epiphanies That Caused People to Break Up

By Dating Positives May 07, 2019

Did you ever have an “aha” moment when you realized you needed to end things with someone?

 

We asked people to share their relationship epiphanies – epiphanies that ultimately resulted in a break up, and here’s what they had to say:

 

The Marriage Perspective 

“I had been dating a guy in college for some time and was dragging my feet on breaking up with him. Then his mother introduced me to someone as his future daughter-in-law, and I broke up with him the next day.”
-Gia, 35, New York

 

Why Am I Still Here?!“I realized the thought of hanging out with them didn’t seem more exciting than being alone!”
Shawn, 23, Miami

 

The Dollar Sign

“I had an ‘aha’ moment with a former gf immediately after she asked me for money.”
-Barry, 50, New York

 

Should Have Trusted My Gut

“I was dating a younger guy (barely – only 11 months) – and he was clearly interested in someone else. I pretended it was cool too because I am open minded about male + female friendships. Anyway… then I saw them holding hands, and that was it!”
Shali, 39, Chicago
