Breaking up after a short termed relationship of dating is just as difficult as a long term relationship. Although many people do not see the two as being the same type of feelings that were put into a relationship it is solely dependent upon the feelings that were established during the relationship. That is why many people can leave a long term relationship and move on so quickly compared to those that were together for only a short time frame. You see after being in a relationship for a long time the two of you know for a fact if it is worth staying in but for whatever reason no one ever wants it to end. Which is why by the time at least one of you get the nerve to end the relationship both of you are so relieved that there are new relationships formed with in a matter of weeks. Compared to when people have dated short term and they decide to let it go for good. During a short term relationship both parties may have developed feelings for one another and although they are willing to walk away the hurt feeling of not completing what they initially began can be hurtful to the point of sadness and not dating for a while.
