First take a hard look at yourself. (don't answer here but think about these things)

1. Are you even looking for a serious long term/permanent relationship?
2. Are you interested in getting married?
3. Did you love her initially?
4. Did the WOW wear off and now the relationship is work?
5. Are you doing YOUR 100% to keep the relationship healthy?

There is a HUGE difference between "just dating" and looking for a life long mate. This sounds clinical but you will have to spend some personal time making a list of deal breakers and gotta have's for your serious committed relationship.
Important stuff like religious beliefs, kids, work, politics, Family issues......

Once the " Wheeeeee! this is fun!" Wears off, relationships are work and sacrifice. Keeping them fun is hard and it is easy to let things settle into a comfortable routine and get boring.

IF you have done the soul searching and she makes it past the deal breaker part of the screening process, then ask yourself....Why are you kicking her to the curb?
Perhaps the problem IS her, Perhaps it is You?

If it is because of a deal breaker, man up and talk with her. She will feel better about the break up, You will feel better about yourself, and both of you will be better people afterwards.

If its because of YOU.... the decision is much tougher. Do you talk with her about your issues? Do you suck it up and keep going? Do you try and work through whatever is making you want to leave?

Hope this helps and I wish you the best moving forward.

This is good advice. A lot of people are terrible at looking at a situation objectively, and always externalize problems. If you have the ability to see your situation with a wide-angle lens and swallow pride, you can learn a lot about yourself.

I, for one, had no idea how selfish I was until I got married and had kids, then got irritated at not having any time to do anything. It seems worse in America - we want everything without having to give up anything or work especially hard for it.

Spend some time trying to figure out what you want. If you are worried about your impact on her, then I guarantee you this - the thing that helps the recipient of that kind of news get over it the most is when there is a reason. Otherwise, she'll just be questioning herself, you, and the whole situation for a long time. If you give her the courtesy of trying to pin-point something that's a real deal-breaker before dumping her, it will help her "digest" the news better in the long run...and hate you less \:\)

The first thing to do is set down out in the woods & try to figure out what love is,not your love mom & dad & brother/sister,but the other kind & sex has nothing to do with it.The first thing you will decide is if she is a good person ,my wife is the best lady I know,it started there then I got to know her ,she is my best freind.If she cant be your best freind you may want to keep looking for the 1,good luck & a lot of folks never find theirs,we have been married over 28 years
