1. Make sure to get all your shit back from their place. This includes miscellaneous items i.e. that baking form you like so much.
2. Don’t leave without making them give back all the money that they owe you.
3. Remove every incriminating photo/video/note he or she has in their possession that someday may be used against you. You don’t want that homemade pornographic film to be posted online, do you?
4. Have an effective non-communication plan, especially if you know they have stalker potential.
5. Bring a defense weapon to the break-up just in case things turn ugly. Feel free to spit if they do.
