When a difficult time comes in your relationship and you are at the crossroads, stop. There may be many reasons why you don’t want to continue the arrangement with your benefactor. It is possible that it does not bring you any emotional or financial satisfaction anymore. Your feelings have changed and the initial chemistry has burned out. Maybe the arrangement you signed up for was not clear enough. Maybe he became too possessive or jealous. Maybe your expectations were different and your commitment to solving problems was insufficient.
The endings do not have to be unpleasant; on the contrary, they are the beginning of something new. The priority is not to burn bridges. You do not know when in the future a relation may come in handy, especially with a rich man. If you feel that your relationship is going towards the end, he probably suspects that too. Make him aware at the beginning that your relationship is NSA (no strings attached). Breaking up will be easier because it did not require a lot of commitment in the first place.
The ends of my relationships were not always colorful. Usually, they ended in fights and breaking the contact. I realized this it was a mistake when I lost a ton of valuable people in my life. I have learned to respect others even if our paths diverge. This is an important skill. Do not blame yourself or others. You probably learned a lot from this person and benefited from the relationship. It’s time to move on and find new relationships.
“All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances”
