Soft dumping refers to breaking things off with someone you have been seeing only casually. The difference between dumping someone in the usual sense and soft dumping is that the two (or three) of you were never all too serious or exclusive in the first place. This is typically relevant for folks who are non-monogamous or in open-relationships.
