Sorry but if he’s 30 he should probably know this already… Anyway if I were the girl, I’d just want it straight. “Hey, I feel like we aren’t really connecting, so I don’t think we should date anymore”. Personally I don’t like being friends with exes etc but if he wants to be friends, he could add “but I’d still like to talk to you and be friends if you are willing”. I would say in person is respectful, no matter how long a relationship has gone on.

Yeah, face to face, over coffee. “I think you are the right girl for somebody but just not for me. You are gorgeous and lovely and I’ve enjoyed our time together. I really wish you luck and love in the future. I hope you can understand.”

I have dated men a decade older than him who were far less caring and thoughtful. Sadly age doesnt always seem to be a factor in maturity.

I think all breaksups , of any sort, should be done in person. Meet for coffee. She will probably know what’s coming, but there are some good examples of wording above.

Someone who dumps you by text is a giant prick.

I think you should let (make) your 30 year old son do it himself. If he wants to text her, that’s his prerogative… not that I agree with it. It’s great that you’re concerned, but you have to let go at some point.
