How to get out of an on again, off again relationship

There are times when we know a relationship has run its course or is no longer in line with our long-term goals. We break up, only to get back together a while later. The cycle goes on, and we don’t know how to deal with it. Here are a few tips to get through.

Recognise the pattern

 Recognise the cycle
On again, off again relationships have a pattern. You may seek the guy out around certain days or when you are feeling low. Identifying the pattern can help you break the cycle.


Once you have recognised the pattern, use the time to reflect on why you seek a relationship in such situations. Is it loneliness? Or low self-esteem? Understanding the issue might help you in making a clean break.

Address the problem
Once you have zeroed in on the issues, it is time to address them. Get help from your family or friends, or seek professional help to solve them and move on.

Be firm

Be firm
Once you have addressed the issue, it is time to have a talk with the SO. Explain your concerns. If you have decided to end the relationship, be firm about your reasons to move on. Do not give him room to negotiate.

Get support

At the same time, stack up on the emotional support from family and friends. Fill your schedule with activities so that you remain busy and do not miss your former SO.

Make a clean break
Last but not the least, ensure that you make a clean break. There should be no contact between the two of you till you feel you have moved on and are unlikely to fall into the old cycle. Avoid meetings or late-night chats/phone calls.
