Eventually the other person figures out you don’t feel the same way they do, and haven’t for rather a while – people get upset. …I’m trying to improve in the art of breaking things off tactfully and at the appropriate time. Coyoty September 10, 2020 at 4:14 am 3 years ago Little does she know that her sister already used that one on Dimitri. FlySwatter September 10, 2020 at 7:16 am 3 years ago MUCH simpler Rikard September 10, 2020 at 8:38 am 3 years ago It’s quie sad that people do that in real life, and even more sad that it is supposedly acceptable behaviour. Yeah, love hurts and truth hurts and breaking up is hard to do, but if you have any respect for the other person (not to mention yourself), don’t they deserve honesty, and not sweet little lies? (Abusive realtionships is quite a different story, of course – it should go without saying, really, that if you are in danger virtually anything goes.) And Dmitri is probably the last guy you would ever need to pull that trick on. Mark Jackson September 10, 2020 at 11:20 am 3 years ago Nice upper-lip beer foam. Soweli Nasa September 10, 2020 at 3:14 pm 3 years ago I find if I’m just sincerely keeping it real and being myself, that people will break up with me with no effort at all on my part. M.A. September 10, 2020 at 5:37 pm 3 years ago So what’s the code if Mother really IS dying? Efogoto September 10, 2020 at 6:25 pm 3 years ago Mom’s been dead ten years — “… having tea and biscuits with death for about a decade. Rest her soul.” There’s no chance of mixed signals now. Pete Rogan September 11, 2020 at 1:12 am 3 years ago I can’t criticize a working disassociation tactic. If it works and no hard feelings, all the better. I’m continually surprised by people who are so certain ‘honesty is the best policy’ to end it with someone. I can only presume they tried it and figured they had somehow not done it right. They have no idea they’re heartaches waiting to happen to someone else. Of course I avoid entanglements with such persons. Except once. My fault for not discouraging her, I’m afraid. But she was persistent and seemed sincere. Should have paid better attention. Won’t make that mistake again. meerling September 11, 2020 at 1:14 am 3 years ago I’m betting that Dmitri knows. I also wouldn’t be surprised if next time she visits her moms grave, there will be a bouquet of alien flowers there.
