    Red face Dating Service? Try a Break-Up service!

    A German businessman has set up a "separation agency" - a service to inform unsuspecting spouses and lovers their partners no longer want them.
    Bernd Dressler will deliver the bad news - for those too scared to do it themselves - for 20 euros (£13) by phone, or for 50 euros (£33) in person.

    The efficiency and directness of Mr Dressler's manner has earned him the nickname The Terminator.

    The 52-year-old compares his company to a dating agency but "in reverse".

    'Only the messenger'

    "We have had dating agencies for 30 years. If you want to have a new partnership then you have to quit your previous one.

    "I think it's the same market - just in reverse," Mr Dressler told the BBC.

    The message can be delivered in a "sympathetic or direct manner". Mr Dressler said that most of his clients do not want any further contact with their ex-partner.

    The client is asked to provide three reasons why they want to terminate the relationship - these are then passed on by the agency to the former lover.

    "The time is right for this service. Many clients are unhappy in their partnerships and they want to end it in a neutral way," Mr Dressler said.

    The former insurance manager said he has been fortunate never to have witnessed any extreme emotional reactions.

    "I am only the messenger," he said.

    Part of me thinks "that's the best idea ever!" and the other part says "have we become so confrontation shy that we can't even end our own relationships?"

    I sort of had the same reaction, thinking 'why wasn't this around when I was dating?'. Then I thought, good god, are people this scared of dealing with thier lives or so emotionally retarded that they'd actually use this 'service'?

    There ya go Grimm - you've been thinking of a career change. You'd be perfect for this; kind, caring, gentle, diplomatic, discreet, sympathetic.

    Oh yes! A*O, you are a genius! Grimm would be perfect for this. He could set it up in Canada, branch out to the States and before you know it, it's world domination by the Queen of Mean!

    ^^Exactly. Christ people cannot even end their own relationships? Sounds like what they really need is a service to help them locate their spines.

    I'm meant that in a complimentary, Leona Helmsley kind of way.
