No: Hand in your notice, but not before you have given it your best shot. "In your exit meeting, stick to the story that you are leaving to develop your career," says Dr Sharma. "Only answer the question you want to answer."
Leaving for a better offer
No: Even if you don't intend to return, you are likely to cross paths again. Think how you want to be remembered, says Dr Kersi Chavda, consultant psychiatrist, Hinduja Hospital, Mumabi. Spend your notice period living up to that image.
And with other people?
No: It's time to split. "Identify those who are your social support," says Sharma . It's a shorter fall if the net's waiting.
Is the problem more than 50 per cent your fault?
No: There's nothing worse than not communicating even if you are not at fault. And if you are in it for the long haul, nothing beats showing your affection with a physcial gesture, says Singh.
Are you leaving her for someone she knows?
No: A clean break is best. Tell her you are sorry but you have met someone and you need to end your relationships, says Singh. "Then, keep your meetings to a bare minimum. Stay in touch and she will think she's got a chance," says Dr Sharma.
