Looking for a way to dump your partner?
Getting dumped and dumping someone is the worst feeling one can have, but in our generation this is a necessity. A survey looks at the ways boys and girls dump their partners.

FAIRYTALES, HAPPILY everafter and soulmates are laughable in this generation (as Akira in Jab Tak Hai Jaan puts it) of 'instant make out and instant break-up'. While everyone is on the look out for their perfect partner, to get one is far from easy.

In a time when people no longer remember the meaning of adjustment, almost everyone enters a relationship with the thought that it might not work out. In a recent study, it has been seen that the way of the break-up is different for the genders.

Cliched lines, sob stories of finding oneself is almost what a girl goes with. The line 'Its not you, its me,' might sound cheesy to everyone but there are situations when a certain kind of personality just can't go along with a definite kind of personality, in spite of giving the relationship a number of tries.

As far as breaking up is concerned, the female gender tries to cushion the blow with these lines. They are far more concerned than men to not hurt their partner, as was seen by the survey conducted by dating site,

1000 people were involved in the survey that showed that majority of the men broke up with their partners as they were afraid of commitment. And they did not care to say that aloud to their girlfriends. They can be quite callous and use lines like “I’m not ready for commitment yet.” This sentiment stems from the thought of being tied up with one person for the rest of their lives and that scares a lot of them from relationships.

While earning enough money is a criteria for the girls, men do not want to pursue a relationship where they feel that the physical spark is not up to the mark. Women are normally not concerned much about this.

The virtual world plays a lot of role in today's break-up scenario. A number of people break away on the phone or emails. Around 52 percent women and 43 percent men actually meet their partner to break away. Break up via text is used by 5 percent women and 6 percent men while 4 percent people actually take the help of their friend to get rid of their partner.
