The jerk who wrote the aforementioned breakup letter actually got this one right.In the first couple paragraphs he gets right to the point: "I'm not into us."DON' T: Say more than you need to. Pointing out someone's flaws in an attempt to "help" them in the future is asinine and not really beneficial. Just say, "Had fun with you, but didn't really feel a romantic connection."
