What are some of the best or worst break up lines you have used or heard, or would like to use?
I should get some bonus points because I unleashed this one myself.
"Streetfighter 2, sorry".
I was 12. Damn, what a time to be alive.
i think this has been a cliche.. if i would be breaking up with someone.. I would just say "I simply don't love you anymore"..it may sound painful but at least I have been true... it will hurt him but it will make him realize that there is no hope for us.. and being a part is the best option.
the one I usually get is "I hate you. Don't ever talk to me again or I'll get a restraining order!"
Its amazing isn't it? The shift in character. Like flipping a coin
I've heard that one more often than I like to admit! Ja ja ja ja ..no it only happened once.
Mr Hutchinson! Are you laughing in Spanish?
Its not you ,its' me(puppy dog eyes), I just need to find out whats going on with me man
Its not you,its me, I just need to find out if my options are still open for that other chick,but in case they are not, I better not burn all my bridges..
And , what do you mean ,I look different somehow?
Oh those tire marks across my body ya mean, yea BIG truck smashed into me head on ,didnt see it coming..then I rolled under a BUS ,but hey other than that, Im doin fine a-hole
So,whats up with you ,find a life yet
lol Eaglekiwi - Brilliant interpretation...he may go on to say, "I don't want to end things, I just need some space" which means "I still want to stash some of the junk I don't have room for at your place. I don't want this other chick to think I'm sloppy or anything."
Without fail, its always been "I need some space, let's take a break". Followed a few weeks later by, "ah, yea -- um".
Oh yess part of the 'lets stay friends' package.
Good to see you RB !!smiles for miles
I've used the "let's stay friends" one, myself, a couple of times. I don't see anything wrong with it. Turns out the amicable, reasonable, civilized, approach doesn't seem to sit well with some people.
You misunderstand ,lol
I have certainly remained friends with good people who are indeed 'friends' amicably
My comments were directed at excuses ie in the name of friendship...(when its more like , do you mind if I use,while I explore my other options.
Ah! Now I know you meant. Then again, I have to say that when I've used the "can we stay friends" thing, it's pretty much involved stuff like restraining order, closed bank accounts, telling everyone I know to stop taking the guy's calls - that kind of thing. (Oh - and there was that "minor" unpleasantness with having someone think I was crazy for breaking up, and sending the authorities to pick me up for a mental health evaluation. ) If I ever have to break up with anyone again I think I won't use that "can we stay friends" thing. Maybe I'll just leave a note and disappear. (I once didn't understand how/why people just stopped showing up. Now I see the wisdom in that approach. )
(By the way, neither of these people would harm a fly, which is why I can now joke about their extreme response to being broken up with.)
I've never been at the receiving end of that one. I guess there were no doubts it WAS me. Sad really.
oh yes! I know that one! Also the one where, they say, "I know we planned on spending this Sunday together, but can I take a rain-check? There's something else I really need to do." (right, like they're really saying: "I need to go rent a hotel room and drink champagne with your best friend, the floozy)
"we both want different things" yeah I want monogamy and he dosen't
"You're so out of my league!"
My answer: "I knew that when I agreed to go out with you in the first place."
How about this one.
"I think we just need to take a break from this relationship for now."
This isn't working out for me, so I think we should see other people, but I'll keep you around as a backup boyfriend/girlfriend in case i can't find anyone else.
ahahhaah you are funny Stevennix nice to see you here
'Let's just be friends".......what's that supposed to mean? I've heard it but never experienced it, but I would like to know why a guy breaking a girl's heart in two would be asking her to be just friends.
It's possible to care about someone but not feel the relationship is right or healthy. It's possible to recognize that the relationship (even with someone we care very much about and like) isn't right, and hope to salvage the good part of it (which is the friendship).
Yea it is quite a demotion from lovers to friends.
I dont say be enemies but give me a break, if Im being rejected ,that doesnt seem like friendship to me.
Real friends don't have to explain their friendship-they both trust and feel safe with each other.
Better off saying nothing (IMO)
Time may be different.
When I break up which was maybe 3 times in my life.. I say the truth, @sshole! You not for me and your NOTHING like you made out to be in the beginning..
Friends I can usually be easily after the break up, its usually them that wants more again even if they wanted the break up..
Some would have been better friends, god knows they treated the just friends better, but nope cant be just a friend with me...
Have one guy friend now and I hope we last a while until he hooks up with someone who wont let him talk to me anymore, lol!
..i like 'i need space'...i have to learn a new one ...
"I honestly believe we were better people apart, I certainly liked you A LOT more from afar"
"Yes, I'm having another drink because suddenly, I hate the fact you've seen me naked"
"No, I don't think it's working and no I don't want to keep dating you - which is why I put your stuff in this box, please take the box away"
or my personal favourite
"I don't think we should see each other anymore, and no I don't want to be friends either"
... those are the ones I give. I've only ever got "I need space" or "I feel like you're avoiding me"
" I think we should break-up, i don't want to drag you into my misery"
" I Fall out of love, I am sorry this is all we can be" and then I walk out and never turn back

"Nothing is Impossible" which we all have heard, is it right?If everything is possible then why people fail or if something is impossible then why people say "nothing is impossible"?
