I went into a relationship with this girl. Now she is utterly obessesed with me. Her family disaproves of her dating, and I want out. How can i do it without breaking her heart too much?

This sounds like a tough situation, and it’s something that many teens go through. In general, breakups go better when people are straightforward and direct about their feelings rather than dropping hints.

Some people try to break up by being rude or distant with their partners, but this is likely to cause confusion and hurt feelings. If you’re feeling unsure about what to say, you might want to try writing down your feelings before you talk to your girlfriend. But be sure that you tell her that you want to end the relationship — and don’t have someone else do it for you.

Staying in a relationship that you don’t want to be in isn’t healthy for either person. Being dishonest about your feelings isn’t good, either. Relationships only work when both people want to be in them. If you’re concerned that your girlfriend is so “obsessed” that she may hurt herself or someone else if you break up with her, you may want to talk to a trusted adult about this situation.
