Dear Poll: Have You Ever Been Talked Out of a Breakup?

Have you ever let your boyfriend talk you out of breaking up with him just in the nick of time? If so, you're not alone. According to February's issue of Glamour, 40 percent of the women surveyed have been talked out of it mid-split, usually because he said "I love you" or I'll change." Although those are nice words to hear, would that be enough for you to have a sudden change of heart? Ladies, what I want to know is, have you ever let someone talk you out of a breakup?

Nope, I really didn't see any reasons for NOT breaking up. I did talk someone out of a break up though, but that was only to (mutually) break up a month later. Long story.. :/ But I still find it really sweet that he liked me enough to give it another try. Or maybe he was just too daft to actually say there was a problem before. :? He's a nice guy, but he's a weirdo.

I tend to get irrational when I'm upset, and I like to be left alone. However, if I feel any hint of annoyance at my boyfriend during this time, I am quick to dump him. Thankfully, he understands how I work, and he's supportive, but at the same time, forces me to re-examine my decision without being pushy. Of course, thirty minutes later, I realize I was foolish.

Unfortunately, yes. When I look back at it now it was one of the biggest mistakes of my life. Thank goodness I'm not in that situation anymore!!!

I was talked out of it three times in one relationship. Think we both would have been better off if it had ended the first time I tried. Oh well, you live and you learn.

I have been talked out of a breakup, and I ended up staying in the relationship for months longer than I should have when I knew I wanted out. I think in general letting yourself be talked out of it is a bad idea.

Sorta yes once as my bf put so much effort into our anniversary night that I didn't have the guts to break up with him then. Another time another boyfriend pulled the "I love you card" when I asked for a break. I knew when I felt like that still wasn't good enough that we were going to break up. And we did.

I have and like everyone else it was a horrible relationship that I ended up going back to. The man was manipulative and was abusive. Blah.

Yep... guilty. I say some things I don't mean when I get in horrible moods, a fact he's well aware of.

I have, but it was a seriously bad relationship, abusive and manipulative and I admit I was totally controlled by him. It took some time, but I finally realized I was better than that, and I had to get out and did. He certainly guilted me into staying for a lot longer than I ever should have though.

Yes, and it was a 5 year marriage, so I was more apt to want to stay. However, once I finally made my mind up that I WAS leaving, he wasn't able to change my mind with an "I'll change." I knew better!

I`ve felt that my relationshin wasn`t going in the right direction before and every time I tried breaking it off he always jumped in and save it all. His first "I'll change" didn't work, second didn't quite become true either, but I guess guys need more than just one push sometimes, especially when they're young. Now "I'll change" actually works and we're engaged!

Poster-of-a-Girl Poster-of-a-Girl 9 years
yes, but in my defence it wasn't a premeditated break up - it was one of those angry spur of the moment things. But when I actually started thinking about it seriously and did it, I don't think anything could have talked me out of it. But then again, by then he didn't try, so who knows =/

I talked HIM out of a break up over almost two years ago. Things have been great since then (I think he was getting cold feet because his best friend was getting married).

I'm with you, Meike. I've been there.

No way - or at least not yet. If I end it, I generally have good reasons, and there's no going back... although I sort of wish I had been talked out of my first breakup with a bit more success... I regret it, now...

Yes, but only once. I don't fall for those tricks anymore!

Nope...whenever I had made the decision to end things (which usually took a lot because I'm pretty non-confrontational), I was done.
