I don’t want to talk about my break-up

DEAR HARRIETTE: Not long ago, I ended things with a person I had been in a relationship with for five years.

Without a doubt the hardest part of the breakup has been having to re-explain it to all those who knew us as a couple.

I am wishing that everybody would mind their business and just assume that I don’t want to discuss the details any longer. It is hard reliving something that was so painful for me.

My relationship was very public and I understand the curiosity, but I don’t want to keep talking about it.

How do I handle the questions about my breakup?

— Tired of Explaining

DEAR TIRED OF EXPLAINING: Guess what? You can stop explaining now.

While people may be curious about what happened, it is none of their business. You can kindly yet firmly say that it is true that you two broke up. You are single now. You wish your ex well, but the last thing you want to do is talk about it. The end.
