The perfect break-up does not exist and there is not a single moment entirely suitable for the uncomfortable announcement. However, there are some times when you absolutely should never be bothered, including the following situations.
Just before an important challenge
Does your partner soon have an important event such as a work presentation or a promotion interview? If you decide to break it up just a few days before, you'd better wait a while. By finishing it, chances are that your partner will take on the challenge.
Birthdays and holidays
By finishing it on his or her birthday, your partner will be reminded annually break-up on a day that should normally be celebrated. The same applies to important holidays such as Christmas. Unless you have no other choice, it's better to postpone the conversation for a few days.
Once you've decided it
When you've just decided you want to end the relationship, it's always better to think about it for a while. If you do not do this, you risk regreting it.
You really shouldn't do this to anyone. Never decide in public or when you have guests in the house, for example. The only exception to this is when you have a legitimate reason to fear the reaction of your partner, for example due to aggression problems.
So a short delay can often be appropriate, but it is not the intention to soak or even postpone it for months. By repeatedly postponing it you waste both your own time and your partner's time.
