both delicious, but not necessarily together. Maybe ice cream needs hot fudge
and spaghetti needs meatballs. In other words, don't stick around if you get
the feeling things aren't right for you, you don't need a big reason to leave—lots
of people are great, just not as a partner for you. Be direct and polite
letting someone go, but that is really all you are responsible for. They may
beg you for a “reason”, but most of the time, like I said, there really isn't
one. Ice cream and spaghetti.
