Yes but sometimes it requires external help.

You can always just disappear and wait till somebody files missing persons.

A stereotypical "going for a pack of cigarettes and never coming back"?

Hmm...

"What do you do if you can't find love?"
"How do you know if you can find someone better or...?"
"Is it possible to get out of a relationship you're stuck in?"

I am beginning to sense a pattern here.

Yes. Tell the person that you’re sorry and don’t want to waste anymore of their time and say that you want to end the relationship. I know it’s painful. But it’s short term pain and now you can find someone who is perfect for you.

I just read the replies. Uhhh no. Just be upfront. Think of it like a firing. Even been fired? Just do it that way. Don’t do it over text. Be respectful. Be concise. I got dumped and I survived. But I was already dead so eh.

But I was already dead so eh. It’s a part of life. Life can’t be all rainbows and butterflies.its a positive thing in long run, they find someone that’s right for them as maybe you do or maybe you realise that all you need is your independence.

How can I avoid them emotionally reacting badly?

You're actually not stuck in anything. You're not in any contract with this person are you?

You don't owe anybody anything. Its sad but once a relationship has run its course and there is no way of rekindling anything then you just have to walk away.

There is no way to be kind especially if the person still has feelings for you but it's nice to be honest and respectful.

Just tell them that it's not what you want any more and you can't make them happy.
