Top five worst breakup lies

photo_21523_20120317Gentlemen, when will you ever learn?

Those corny, canned lines you come up with when you want to  “break up” with a woman are schlock. That’s right, schlock. They’re disingenuous, false, and they are empty.

Don’t even try these on us

You know the scenario, after about six dates, a guy gets bored or totally afraid of any kind of commitment. Perhaps the woman isn’t “putting out” or he thinks a younger, blonder, woman would find him sexy and mature. He had heard, ‘Younger women dig older guys.”  Cool. So, the guy decides to “break up.”

Don’t tell a woman any of these five egregious lies:

  1. You’re just too good for me. I’m going to set you free.
  2. My old girlfriend called and she wants to get back together.
  3. I’m not feeling the magic anymore. We gave it three weeks. I’m moving on.
  4. Babe, it’s nothing personal. I just need some space.
  5. I’m going to lay off dating for awhile.

What thoughts are ricocheting through the mind of a woman hearing these heinous lies? “Oh, what a schmuck.” “Really, dude? Wait until I tell the girls about this one.” “Ta-ta Mr. Hair Club for Men.”

A Classic Scenario

Lothario: he is 45+, recently divorced. New to online dating – he sees it as a potential “Booty Buffet.”  He wants to make up for lost time – with as many women as possible. He remembers himself as a “10” (a long, long, time ago.) When he looks in the mirror he doesn’t see the saggy, baggy body, thinning hair, the dated wardrobe. He has heard incredible stories about online dating- how women are lining up- the rules have changed- it’s a par-tay every night.

And, it’s off to the races!

Eventually, Lothario – the Playboy in a Prius-  finds out he is out of practice, out of shape and out of his league. Younger women are looking for younger men. A few women at the bar have compared him to their fathers. Not only is the not getting “any”- younger women will allow him to buy them a drink – or drinks for all their friends – and then disappear- with the younger, hipper, cool dudes in the GQ costume. Reality check.

So, gentlemen take a minute, wrestle with the concept of integrity and learn the truth will set you free. Date your decade, dude.
