Few of my favorite break-up lines...
Happy TT! :-)


1. "We have to meet other people to see what it's like to be with someone else. I'm giving you that choice. If you come back to me, we'll both be better from having chosen freely."

"We are too different from each other."

"Maybe this is not the right time for us."

"I really think that we should break up." "Why?"
"Because I don't know if I still love you."

"we are not growing anymore."

"I don't have feelings for you anymore."

"I just need space..."

"it was not meant to be ... so honey I am setting you free to look for your destiny"

"our time together was beautiful ... but I realized that there are still things I like to discover so ..."

" I've decided to move on with my life..."

11. "I just don't love you anymore..."

12. "
You deserve someone better. That's not me."

13. And my favorite "It's not you, it's me..."

We are not growing anymore? Wow, I've never heard that one. Growing what precisely? Cabbages? ;)

It's a good list of red flags. As the book says, every one of them translates into "Just not that into you."

These sound all too familiar. How sad.

Oh, man, that last one is a killler, isn't it? Sad but true list!

"I don't love you anymore" That one is a killer. I know someone who told his wife this the day before he booked a year long trip around the world without her. He needed to do it and I can't blame him. She cried but in the end she ended up stronger and they both got to follow their dreams. So sometimes recognizing the love is gone it is best to move on, otherwise you and your dreams will wither and die.

Of course, if Dh bust out with this one I would kick sense into his dumb ass that there is no one better to love than me;) That or reteach him why he fell in love with me in the first place.

Great TT. It made me cry.

Wow, these would be devistating to hear. But, I have to agree with what some other people said, it's better to move apart than to be miserable together.

Very sad list. Lots of things I'd like to say about it but you probably don't want someone else writing a novel on your blog. ;)

In the end, relationships are hard work and if you just don't want to invest the time to keep each other happy, secure and loved then it's probably best to end it.

I certainly do NOT miss the single dating life! I really would never want to go back.

Yeah, it is sad. Especially the "I don't love you any more" one.

I used to wonder why people got into dead end relationships. I know better now.

I'm going to print this. You never know when I might need this. ;)

However, #13 is probably the most honest one, even if the person saying it doesn't realize it.

I often describe my one horrendous breakup (with my high-school sweetheart after ELEVEN years,) as being a mutual decision between me, her, and the other fellows.

Her line to me, the day after my birthday AND the day after a hospital stay for a kidney problem, was...

"I was thinking... we should see other people."

I have now realised that this, translated, means "I'm already seeing someone else... hope you don't mind."

Ah... how I DON'T miss being single!

Brings back memories. I can relate. It's been a long time now, but I remember these moments.
