Guys, a word to the wise: 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:
- You’re just too good for me. I’m going to set you free.
- My old girlfriend called and she wants to get back together.
- I’m not feeling the magic anymore. We gave it three weeks. I’m moving on.
- Babe, it’s nothing personal. I just need some space.
- I’m going to lay off dating for a while.
What thoughts are ricocheting through the mind of a woman hearing these heinous lies? “Oh, whatta schmuck.” “Can’t wait to tell the girls about this loser.” “Ta-ta Mr. Hair Club for Men.”
A Classic Scenario: The Playboy in a Prius
Lothario: he is 50+, recently divorced. New to online dating – he views 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 – finds out, he is out of practice, out of shape – he is out of his league, and not quite the Cassanova he thought he was. Bummer. 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 cool GQ outfit. Reality check.
So, gentlemen take a minute, wrestle with the concept of integrity and learn the truth will set you free.
