My friend was surprisingly broken up with the other day and had been dating her partner for over 3-years. She was definitely upset at the fact that she didn’t see it coming from him but also somewhat relieved because she knew it had end soon. She was so mentally prepared for her to initiate the breakup that I think she thought about who said it first more than the actual breakup.
While I know she would answer the above question for someone else by saying it doesn’t matter. But clearly it did when it came to her own situation.
So based on other relationships, did it matter who won (initiated) the breakup?
