I love everything weird and colorful in this world and I try to live a life that will make the world a little better once I'm gone.

50 Methods for Breaking up with Someone

According to Paul Simon "There must be 50 ways to leave your lover." He was right! We made a list. There are in fact at least fifty ways to leave your lover, and new ways popping up every day.

Perhaps they aren't all the most polite, or the most gentle way to break the news, but there will all get the job done.

      [in reply to Quirina] I think four out of 52, when 50 is all I promised is just fine. Welcome to 2009 - the internet is not a fad.

      No, most of these options are not polite... Need I be polite here? I think counting all web2.0 communication platforms for filling the list is pretty lame... I like the general idea for the lens, though!

      And let me add this: Paul Simon is a hero!

      Quite the original lens! I'm impressed. I never would have thought of this in a million years. I think that means I have some brainstorming to do!

      Yep, there are many ways to leave someone, but whatever you do be CLEAR ABOUT IT, leave no room for doubt without doing any unnecessary "damage".
