A Unique Way to Leave Your Valentine (or anyone else)

These unusual cards don’t greet, they say hit the street!!

Not everyone wants to send flowers and candy on Valentine’s Day.  Sometimes the relationship is over but it still officially exists.  How do you end it?  You know you want to…need to.  You’ve talked, fought, cried, tried.  Nothing has worked…for a very long time.

Jeff DeLong knows all about this agonizing state of affairs.  That’s why this Rogue River, Oregon Entrepreneur created C-ya Relationship Closure cards.  They are designed to end relationships.

Whether you want to leave a lover, a spouse, a friend, a boss, a co-worker, or anyone else, there’s a card for you.  Actually, there are 25 of them.  And they all say, in one form or another, See ya!  Go to DeLong’s site to see all of them.

It all began many years ago when DeLong went through his own divorce.  Achieving true relationship closure is really difficult to achieve.  DeLong realized most people never definitively do.

From a psychological standpoint, that’s not healthy.  They carry the old emotional baggage, the fears and regrets, right into their next relationship.

He should know.  Besides his own first-hand experience with divorce, he has a Bachelors’ degree in Applied Psychology, and is certified in Divorce and Family Mediation, and Dispute Resolution in Organizations and Business.

While many of us may be celebrating Valentine’s Day around the country, thousands of people do not want to send flowers and are not happy about their relationships.

DeLong’s closure cards are uniquely designed to help people through a break-up, heal, be honest, obtain closure and grow.

On the outside one says, “Before us I was alone.” Inside it says, “I was Happier then. C-ya!”

The most popular card reads, “There can never be a new beginning, without a final ending! C-ya!”

At first glance the cards might seem to be, well, blunt.  But DeLong says that’s the way relationships should be.  Relationships should be about honesty.  DeLong has now been married for almost 10 years.

About Sandra Bell Kirchman

My passion is for fiction, especially fantasy fiction. I have been writing nearly all my life, since the age of 7 when I produced a 5-page novel called "Angus the Ant" - self-illustrated. Since then, I have written and published a fantasy novel called "Witchcanery," which has won several awards and has met with some acclaim from readers around the world. I've also edited and published an anthology for the writers at my site FantasyFic.com, called "Birth of a Unicorn and Other Stories." Both books are available on Kindle; the latter is also available on Nook. Both books are sold as hard copies at most major online outlets. One of my later ventures was horror stories; surprisingly, since horror stories scare me, I find I have a special affinity for them, especially in flash fiction format (under 1000 or less words). Currently, I am working on two WIPs, one a sequel to "Witchcanery," which several readers have made me promise to write; the other an apocalyptic novel called "The Road to the End of the World." There are several examples of this latter novel in my blog "Fantasyfic," formerly known as "Wizards and Ogres and Elves - Oh My!" Fantasyfic is on hold temporarily, while I work almost exclusively on Puppy Dog Tales. My other blogs keep me hopping. One is a roundup of news and some fun pieces from around the world. It is listed under the name of "News, Views, and Gurus." The current blog is my pet favorite, if you'll pardon the expression. I'm an avid pet parent and animal lover. My three little Shih-Tzus are the joys of my life...and so is my husband, but I don't write about him. Anyhow, my blog "Puppy Dog Tales" is a work of love, featuring my doggies and other pets around the world. I'm a devoted advocate of animal rights and especially backing the cause of animal rescue shelters. My wonderful husband and I live in a very small town in southeastern Saskatchewan on the south side in a rustic, cedar-sided home. Our property is almost a whole acre, and is gracious and pretty (which is not easy to be in one package). All five of us are happy here.
