    the way/with the way/given the way

    Which are correct:

    1-With the way you deal with people, soon you will have no more friends left.

    2-Given the way you deal with people, soon you will have no more friends left.

    3-The way you deal with people, soon you will have no more friends left.

    I think '1' and '2' work. '3' might work in informal contexts, but I don't think it is acceptable in formal English.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Is it acceptable to use 'due to' before 'the way ...'?

    I doesn't sound very natural to me.
