Best Time to Break Up With Someone

Group Therapy: Should I Wait For Our Next Fight to Dump Him?

This question comes from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

I've made up my mind that I want to break up with my boyfriend (been together 3 years and have a small child together).

First issue is I don't know how to do it! I am so terrified that I will hurt him so badly and that he will kick me out then and there, and maybe even try and take our son. I keep thinking I should wait until the next big argument as we have them every so often, to drop the bomb on him, make it more of an angry, "this is why" kinda thing. Rather than sitting him down out of the blue and painfully stating the reasons. Ugh, I need to do it I just haven't the guts.

I feel awful that I'm waiting for our next row! What's better? It needs to happen either way. I have only ever been in one relationship and that's with him, I've never dreamed I'd feel this way but I do and now I just don't know if I can actually take the steps to leave him.
