The most interesting thing about ending a relationship is how differently men and women go about it.
Women break up with a dude because it is clear to her that:
– He is cheating
– He is using her
– He is abusive/violent
– He doesn’t want to marry her (sadly this is often the last thing women come to terms with)
Men break up with a chick because it is clear to him that:
– She won’t break up with him first
For this, men you get the Punk Ass Punk award for avoiding break ups like the plague.
If they could have their way, men would never have to utter the words “This isn’t working,” “I need some space,” “I love you but …”
Men HATE breaking off their real relationships (sorry, jump offs get tossed to the side faster than a used condom) so much so they would stay in it for a year or two too long and pray that their girlfriend either dies, falls into a coma or turns lesbian rather than sit her down and call it quits. Now, I’m not saying that there aren’t real reasons why men dump their girls (she is too needy, has a bad attitude, is a slut in sheep’s clothing, etc) but for a man to get up the guts to end it is a big step.
See ladies, men are more sensitive than you think but not how you think. They don’t really care about hurting your feelings; they care more about you hating them. No man wants to cut off the pussy supply. So if he can end the relationship but still get late night privileges then he would prefer that. The fits of anger, you slandering his character on Facebook, telling your pretty homegirl that he always wanted to fuck that he is no good thereby ending his chances…he doesn’t want to go through all of that.
Men hate being the bad guy, even the assholes don’t want people to know they are assholes like its some secret and we can’t smell the shit as they enter the room. As for the men who are really good dudes and don’t want to hurt a woman’s feelings, they try to deal with the bullshit for as long as they can.
Without Further Ado…STSG Presents:
The 1st bi-annual
Punk Ass Punk Awards!
First Prize: With his girl for 9 years off and on. Even wanted to marry her and started saving for the ring but realized that she wasn’t wife material. She didn’t do the little things (STSG: Post on this topic coming soon!). Before long he wasn’t attracted to her anymore, moved out of their joint apartment, told her he wanted a break. She kept pushing for them to be together, even attempted to learn how to cook. He still wasn’t happy. He tried the “This isn’t working out…” speech but she wouldn’t hear no parts of it. Finally, he stopped trying to be Mr. Nice Guy and started cheating on her left and right, with the intention of getting caught. He did. They broke up. He’s goes down in the books as a Punk Ass Punk.
Second Runner Up: He loves his girl but hates most things about her but is too afraid to get back in the dating pool. He picks fights and even gets her family involved but it backfires because they know he makes a gang of money and they automatically side with him in hopes he’ll finally marry their daughter. One argument got so heated he was sure she was done with him. Instead, she took it on the chin and splurged on a spur of the minute week-long vacation. She ain’t going no-w-h-e-r-e!
Third Place Finisher: Young dude with an older girlfriend. She nags him crazy like a mother. Tells him his career choice sucks, leaves brochures for grad school on his desk. It kills his burgeoning man-hood but he says nothing. They’ve been together for 1 Â½ years. He’s wanted to break up with her for the past 8 months. Last week she brought up them having kids.
If you are a punk or have punk tendencies, do yourself and the women who date you a favor…man up!
