[ad]No breakup is easy — the best you can do is minimize the sting. And let’s assume that you’re not seeking advice to make your own life easier, but rather to let him go with the least possible harm done.
Although Libra is not the most sensitive sign in the zodiac, he is one of the most relationship-focused. Assuming he’s not been unfaithful, he’ll likely be devastated when you break the news.
Don’t do it over email, IM or text message. Libra is a face-to-face type of guy, and the impersonal nature of internet communication can leave him feeling cold. Although breaking up over the computer or via SMS is nearly always an inappropriate escape route, Libra will experience this technological goodbye as a grave affront.
Be fair. To appeal to Libra’s sense of balance, focus equally on each of your faults and strengths. Better yet, frame the reason(s) for the breakup in terms of “the relationship” instead of what he did wrong. For example, state that “we” had difficulty managing the issue of his flirtatiousness at parties and how you emotionally responded to his behavior. That is, it takes two to tango, and you each had a part to play in whatever led to the breakup. It may be your decision, but you’re not an innocent bystander.
Break the news in a pleasing environment. He’ll remember this moment, so you may as well reduce his future suffering by picking a nice spot. If his recollection is going to hurt, it will be worse if he has an image of your last moments near the dumpster behind Walmart. Take him to the beach, give the breakup some quasi-romantic overtones.
Don’t let him talk you out of it. Libra likes to please, and will offer to compromise or give up something in order to keep you. His diplomatic flair and mediation skills can be used to dissuade from your original position. If a breakup is what you really want, stand firm.
