A man goes into his son's room to wish him goodnight. His son is having a nightmare; the man wakes him and asks his son if he is okay. The son replies he is scared because he dreamed that Aunt Lisa had died. The father assures the son that Aunt Lisa is fine and sends him to bed. The next day, Aunt Lisa dies. One week later, the man again goes into his son's room to wish him goodnight. His son is having another nightmare; the man again wakes his son. The son this time says that he had dreamed that his grandfather had died. The father assures the son that his grandfather is fine and sends him to bed. The next day, the grandfather dies. One week later, the man again goes into his son's room to wish him goodnight. His son is having another nightmare; the man again wakes his son. The son this time says that he had dreamed that dad had died. The father assures the son that he is okay and sends the boy to bed. The man goes to bed but cannot sleep because he is so terrified. The next day, the man is scared for his life -- he is sure he's going to die. After dressing he drives very cautiously to work. He doesn't eat lunch because he is scared of choking. He avoids everyone because he's sure he will somehow be killed. He jumps at every noise and hides for most of the day under his desk. Upon walking in his front door at the end of the day, he see his wife. "Good God, Dear," he proclaims, "I've just had the worst day of my entire life!" She responds, "You think your day was bad, the UPS man dropped dead on the doorstep this morning."

Thirteen percent of adults -- mostly men -- have done this at least once.

Even the "it’s not you; it’s me" speech is better than these. As the old saying goes, "breaking up is hard to do" ... especially if you’re on the receiving end of it. If you’re the one ending the relationship, compassion is key. With that in mind, here are five ways you should never choose to end a relationship:
1. A hired hand. Some people ask a friend to do their dirty work for them, but having a friend tell your significant other that it’s over is incredibly cowardly. Do it yourself and deal with the backlash that comes with it -- like an adult.
2. The breakup text. Texting your significant other “I love you” is adorable. Texting him/her to say “I don’t want to see you anymore” is cruel. A text message breakup breeds regret. If you are inclined to text someone to end a relationship, take a deep breath and call him/her instead.
3. The sticky note. Who could forget that episode of Sex and the City when Carrie’s boyfriend Berger breaks up with her on a Post-It note? He wrote, "I’m sorry…I can’t…Don’t hate me." Can you imagine anything worse? Again, tell the person yourself; don’t let a little piece of paper do it for you!
4. Facebook. An affectionate message by your beau is something you would love to see on your Facebook wall, but breaking up with you on your Facebook wall is something you may never get over.
5. Disappearing act. Avoiding a conversation and pulling a disappearing act might be the worst way to end a relationship – ever. Breaking things off that way is simply unacceptable. Face your fears and break up with some compassion.
