Men Have An Advantage In Ending Relationships

Almost every woman I’ve had a relationship with has wanted to talk through our break-up.

That’s the last thing I’ve usually wanted to do.

If I am not going to be with the woman I love, I don’t want to talk about it with her. I just want to move on.

If I am not going to be with the woman I don’t love, I don’t want to talk about it with her. I just want to move on.

I find it just drives women crazy when you cut off communication. There’s almost nothing you can do within ethical boundaries that will hurt them more. It’s one of the few advantages males have in the male-female relationship — they don’t need to talk everything through.

We all know that “in a relationship” status on Facebook doesn’t guarantee a ‘Happily Ever After.’   Just because a Nice Jewish Girl is dating a Nice Jewish Boy doesn’t mean that they are automatically right for each other, as I discovered with Bike Boy.  Although our relationship started sweetly enough, we ended it with a mutual understanding we really were not a good match.

Unfortunately, I haven’t always gone through such amicable splits – like the guy who dumped me a few days after we put a $500 deposit on my credit card for our vacation in Sonoma or the guy who told me after several weeks of, um…intimacy that not only was he not over his ex-girlfriend, but if he was he would rather be dating someone else (how low on this list was I?).  Okay, so I’ve never been dumped by post-it note or text message, but I know that my boys have trolled on-line dating sites before we ended things and have been cheated on more times than I’d care to admit (on the bright side two of my exes eventually married and had children with the women they were cheating on me with).
