I'm on the verge of a break-up
My girlfriend is getting more and more irritating every passing day. Sometimes I just want to call quits and move on. But then I ponder for a while and think of all the nice things we had together as a couple as well as how much she helped during my days of need. I don't deny that I could be at fault too as I'm not as cheerful as I once used to be. Anyway, the reason why I want to go my way is also because it will give us some time to think about us and what we mean to each other. When I told her about it, her reaction was hysterical! She even accused me of cheating which is a lie. I believe we've both reached the end point in our relationship.

I think both of you are thoroughly bored in your relationship and are just looking for excuses. There is no point sticking on if you two are going to trade allegations at each other. You definitely need to take time off her. For about six months, give your relationship a break. During this period, both of you can look at things in perspective and realise the worth of each other. Both of you are equally to blame in what is going wrong in the relationship. After a break, if you still pine for her, see how you can make amends and woo her again. Similarly, she needs to take stock of the situation and figure out where you stand in her affections.
