Just once. Hopefully never again.

(Note, I don't include the one-day-long "breakup" that my current significant other and I had once...)

I never really had a harsh breakup. (Jeez, I don't want to jinx myself.) Most of the guys I went out with, when it ended it either fizzled or we decided it wasn't going to work.

I think I'm really lucky. I'm even friends with a couple of my old loves. No harsh words exchanged, peace all around.

None of them have been particularly pleasant, but nothing that I would consider horrible either.

I had a really, really tough time breaking up with one of my ex-girlfriends. It was one of those things where the break-up probably took longer than the actual relationship. I think it was year of breaking up. Very painful. I'm thankfully friends with her now; I am so happy having her as a part of my life even though we don't speak much. I really did love her, and while we just weren't in the right place at the right time to make it work, I will always love her. She's with someone currently that I could see her marrying, and I'm genuinely happy for her. But yeah, the break-up... I hope I never have to do anything like that again.

What most people consider harsh I might consider the easy ones. I had two that ended on terrible terms but I was so furious at that point and disliked the two people I was with that the breakups were a positive experience for me. My most recent one sucked (sucks) because the person and I can't be together because he has too many issues, but he's not a bad guy and I don't hate him so it's harder to get over.

It kind of depends on your definition of 'harsh'... like P'Gell, most of mine have been quiet, 'well, we can see that this just isn't what it once was' and then we continue to be friends (after more or less time of not much communication for us to tidy up). There have been two like Owl speaks of, where the 'breaking up' has taken... months or more. Ugh. I wish I was better at handling those situations...

but never anything mean or feud-riddled or spiteful. Sometimes slow and hard, but always lots of concern for each others' well being.

I had one that ended horribly! I broke up with the guy in person and he throw a stereo at me and it hit me, luckily his mom heard something was up. I couldn't take his abusive behavior. I am so glad I got the hell out of there.

I guess a few times but they could have been worse I guess. Don't really care or think about it now.

I don't think I have EVER had a "nice" break-up! Even my best friend, who is an ex-boyfriend, was a rough, nasty break-up, but after a lot of time, we have been great friends for many years.

All my breakups are harsh. When is a breakup not harsh?

A few, but only one was a romantic relationship. Another was with someone so close I called him my brother, and a third was a wanna-be sub. You've gotta do what you've got to do though. A harsh breakup is better than living with the stress every day.

The abusive ones didn't hurt emotionally, but the one that I really loved and NEVER even had an argument with nearly killed me.

Sigel and I broke up once but it was doomed frmo the beginning because neither of us wanted to leave...so I have never had a terrible breakup.

Once is too many but I have had to deal with a couple of terrible break ups. Have no desire to ever do that again.

One bitter, one horrible. The rest were mutual or we're still friends.

My other boyfriends weren't as serious as my current partner, but I cared deeply for most of them and it hurt to go our seperate ways. However, the only ones I had a very hard time with were 2. The one who I gave myself to first was very painful because he was several years older and lead me to believe we had future plans. I was just taken by surprise so much that it made it harder. I got over it in time and am perfectly fine now, but it was tough. The other one was really hard. We had been together for a year and he was kind to me and suddenly changed and then started playing games. He wanted to hurt me and make me run around the world to "prove" I love him. That's too painful when you jump through hoops and it's never good enough. I realized I was better than some dog that obeys. Almost like a servant! It's a dang good thing I didn't end up sticking around with those guys though!

Just two terrible ones, but the relationships were pretty terrible we argued constantly. I was just to scared to break them off because I had put soo much time into the relationship I had lost a lot of my friends. So I was afraid because I didn't know who I would count on afterwards. aka too dependent.
