50 Heartfelt Emotional Goodbye Messages For Your BoyFriend

Saying goodbye to the one you love can be one of the hardest things to do. If you're struggling for the right words to express your feelings of heartache, this blog post is perfect for you. Here's a look at how to craft the perfect emotional goodbye message for your boyfriend.

Goodbyes are never easy. They might be temporary or permanent, and it doesn’t matter. The worst realization of goodbye is that you never know if you’ll see the person again or not. Anything can happen between that time. If it's someone important to you, either your direction in life can change, or even worse, they might leave the world entirely.

The worst form of goodbyes is with a lover. It does not matter if they are just moving away for a while or if your relationship is about to end. The latter is obviously worse, but the thought of not being able to see your lover even for a day is painful and heartbreaking.

When it comes to a breakup, the biggest heartache comes from the thought of all the things you had planned and never reaching their conclusion. Moreover, the thought of “what it could have been if things were different” hits even worse.

If you want to say goodbye to your boyfriend and don’t have the words for it, here are some messages that I have compiled that will help you. The compilation includes all kinds of goodbyes.

“When I had to say goodbye to you, my love, it was like saying goodbye to my life.”

How Do You Make Boyfriend Cry With Goodbye Messages?

I know you wouldn’t want to hurt your boyfriend even if he hurt you. However, it's not bad to make him feel how you feel or make him cry the way you do.

  1. I let my guard down and let you shatter all my walls when I had them up for so long. You were my healing and my light. I don’t know if I regret that or if I am okay with all the memories you gave me; I will never know. I don’t know how to get through this all because I used to fall in your arms when I felt depressed, and now they are not here anymore.
  2. I wanted you to let me down slowly, but you just cut me out like vines. You threw me away from your life like I meant nothing to you. All I asked was for a little sympathy from you. Now, what’s done is done, and I wish you the best of luck in life.
  3. They say that you never know the value of time until it becomes a memory. I don’t know if it will ever be true for you, but I hope you realize what you lost when you decided to push me away from your life completely.
  4. You are someone I wish was here, but you are not. I feel lost without you, and I remember there was a time I wasn’t because you were with me. Your memories torture me, and I hope someday they fade away as you did from my life.
  5. I was there in the worst moments of your life. I caught you whenever you were falling, but now you went so far away from me that I find it impossible to hold you again. I did everything for you, but all you did was take advantage of me. I will still forgive you for everything as long as you realize what you have done and never do it with someone else. Take care.

I hope you never feel the need to say a sad goodbye to someone you love, but if you have to, my list will help you say it and get closure after it. If you have some goodbye message suggestions, don’t be shy and drop them in the comments. Let’s see what your heart holds.
