It’s not you, it’s me – 8 things to say when you break up with your energy company

Breaking up can be hard to do, and the longer you’re with someone, the harder it feels to cut it off.

Perhaps this is why so many people in the UK stay with their energy provider, refusing to switch even when their bills go up.

It doesn’t have to be hard, though. We’ve given you some tips so you’re not lost for words when the time comes to give your energy partner the boot after months or even years of disappointment.


1) I just feel like we want different things.

You want to overcharge me for my gas and electric bills, and I want money to spend on holidays.


2) The spark has gone…

…and yet I’m still paying top dollar for my electricity when you haven’t fixed it.


3) I think we should see other people…

…and it’ll be a lot easier for me to see other people when I’ve got an extra £350 in my pocket from auto-switching with Look After My Bills.


4) You know when you just want to spend the whole weekend in bed?

Well I can’t do that while I’m paying your huge tariffs to keep the lights on.

5) You’re going to make someone really happy someday.

Then a year later you’re going to move that person off their introductory deal and onto one of your most expensive tariffs.

6) I just don’t have time for this relationship right now…

…which is why I got Look After My Bills to do all the hard work for me.


7) It’s not the same as it was before…

…because you moved me onto a higher tariff.


8) It’s not you, it’s m…

…no, actually it’s you.
