OK--even though I've been on the receiving end much more then doing the breaking up.   Here are some reasons guys give for wanting to break up with you ... and what they really mean.


"I don't want to hold you back from living your own life."

Translation: You're holding me back from the chance of dating even more before I die.

"Commitment totally freaks me out." 

Translation: I liked it better when I could just text you drunk at 3 a.m. when I wanted to come over.

"I need to concentrate on my career." 

Translation: Drinking beer after work with my buddies sounds better to me than working on a relationship.

"I don't want to ruin our friendship."

Translation: If we keep this up, I might botch up any chance of ever going out with one your friends.

"We're just at different points in our lives." 

Translation: You're thinking about going to grad school. I'm thinking about eating an entire pizza while watching a Family Guy marathon.

"We both need to grow as people first." 

Translation: I've still got a lot of partying to do.

"It's not you; it's me."

Translation: This is vague enough to mean absolutely nothing. It also makes me sound tortured and mysterious. (LemonDrop.com)
