Breaking up with someone is definitely not an easy thing to do and that’s the more reasons men resort to lame breakup excuses that will make their ex-partner feel worst than they already do. You might not feel the same way about them anymore or you just don’t want to be with them anymore but using lame excuses hurts more than you can imagine. If you think your outright breakup was painful, continue reading to see ridiculous phrases men use to breakup;


1. I need some time off

This means the guy is either hiding something from you or found someone else. Taking time off is normal in situations where both partners went through a huge fight or when the guy wants to talk his feelings out. But in most cases it just means they are over you and they want you to drift away yourself.

2. I have a fear of commitment

This means he is immature and not worth your time. Guys who are afraid of commitment are the ones who try their best with every girl they come across and they don’t want to be stuck with just one girl forever. You have to let them go and show them how immature they are, find someone who isn’t afraid to hold your hand tight and show the world.

3. You can do so much better

This is another nice word, he is telling you its over so you can think he is not the right person for you. These type of phrases are very common among guys who are too scared to just tell you they never loved you and they are tired of seeing you everyday. But actually, they are right because you can really do so much better than them. Better than a person who cannot even spell out their true feelings and don’t have the guts to say how they feel.

4. I’m just not ready yet

This is a very familiar phrase and it is mostly said by guys that beats around the bush because he just can’t say “I don’t want you anymore”. The guy might even tell you it’s not you but him, he might say you are special to him but he needs time, he can’t commit yet but if he has to you would be the one. It is a way of telling you he wants to sleep with other women and not just only you. Find someone who cherishes you.

5. We can still be friends

This phrase comes when the guy still wants to be around you but doesn’t want to commit with you. He want’s to remain friends with you because he is unsure he will find someone else and he needs a backup when he fails to find another person. These words may sound harsh but it is the reality of things. You have to choose your self respect and say no to being friends.

6. You are great and beautiful but..

The but comes into play when the guy has met someone more beautiful than you and he feels he deserve to be with that person. This happens when the guy is superficial and gives priority on looks over feelings. You shouldn’t be sad because you are better off without that person, beauty fades away but feelings live forever and someone who can’t cherish your feelings doesn’t deserve to be with you.
