Dear Bunmi, how do I get rid of my boring boyfriend? 

Dear Bunmi, how do I get rid of my boring boyfriend? 

AI-generated image for illustration.

Dear Bunmi, I am in my late twenties and have been with my boyfriend for over two years. In those two years, we’ve had what could best be described as an on/off relationship.

Twice I’ve called off the relationship because I thought we weren’t right for each other. But he always convinced me to get back together.

He is a very caring and generous man, but he’s very boring and critical of modern society. We don’t go anywhere or do anything.

Now he’s talking of marriage and I feel trapped.

Dear Bunmi, I don’t want to marry him, so how do I let him down without hurting his feelings?

Dear Lanre,

You have to summon up the courage to tell this man how you feel. Even though he is nice to you, you don’t love him enough to commit to a lasting relationship with him.

Know that even if he’s the most wonderful man in the world, you will never be happy with him if he irritates you. 

Pity is no reason to stay in a relationship. So, let him know you are not ready for commitment. 

Release him to seek his true soul mate and if he pleads to come back, stick to your decision.

Share your problems and release your burden. Write now to Dear Bunmi: [email protected]
