The Break-Up Dictionary – What Your Ex Really Meant

break-up-dictionary-what-your-ex-meantEver had someone break-up with you, and although they said it was “the reason” for the break-up, somewhere deep inside you knew there was more to it?

Well, I’ve been in this field long enough (probably too long) and I’ve heard it all. It’s not always what they tell you it is… but you probably already knew that, didn’t you?

Let’s tell it like it is.

  1. We need a break. [I need a break from you.]
  2. I need space. [You’re needy, clingy and demanding.]
  3. I need space. [You need to slow down. You’re moving too fast for me.]
  4. I need space. [You’re taking over my life.]
  5. I need space. [I’m already getting tired of you.]
  6. I’m not ready for a relationship right now. [You’re moving way faster than I’m comfortable with.]
  7. You deserve better. [I’m not the “one” for you.]
  8.  You just don’t get me. [I’m tired of pretending this is working for me.]

  14. I’m just not ready for a commitment. [If you want to get married soon, then go ahead and get married… not to me.]
  15. I just can’t keep up with you. [I can’t keep up with all the texting/emails/calls. I have better things to do with my life.]
  16. I think we should see other people. [I think you should find yourself someone who loves you more than I do.]
  17. I think we should see other people. [I think there is someone else out there for me.]
  18. If it’s meant to be, we’ll be together again [If I don’t meet someone better, I’ll settle for you.]
  19. Let’s step back and reevaluate what we really want. [I’m not sure you are what I want. I think a little time apart will make that clear for me.]

  21. We’re just at different points in our lives. [We’re not growing together, we’re growing apart.]
