About This Quiz

Breaking up with someone is never easy, regardless of the situation you are in. Even if you have no feelings for someone or have already moved on, telling someone that you do not want to be with them is painful and sometimes even insulting. A lot of times, it leaves them heartbroken and bitter, wondering what they did to deserve it.

A classic example of a devastating breakup is in "The Notebook," showcasing the end of a relationship that took years to heal from. After a hot and heavy evening together, Noah tells Allie that their relationship is over, prompting one of the most dramatic breakup scenes in history. 

Although Noah and Allie's relationship is fictional, it is extremely important to handle a breakup in the right way. If you have been in a relationship for a long time, were in love at one point, and imagined a future with one another, it would be wildly inappropriate to break up with your boyfriend over a text message or even over the phone. However, if your boyfriend was more of a fling that you never saw going anywhere, a simple text may suffice. Take this quiz, and we'll tell you exactly how you should cut ties with your beau.
