This week’s post is going to be a little different. I hope you don’t mind. But after sharing some of my break up stories in past posts, some men on the Internet felt the need to chime in. As they always do.

So I wanted to take a moment and give them some insight:*

  1. Women are not more erratic then men.
  2. Women have estrogen. Men have more testosterone. Both can create overly emotional people.
  3. Men can be just as crazy during a break up as a woman. And in my experience they have been the crazy ones.

I’m tired of the rhetoric that women are these emotional ticking time bombs and these so called “pick up artists” talk about how men need to be careful when breaking up with them because at any moment we could go off. Women are not that big of a mystery to solve, gentlemen.

We tend to let you know exactly what you’re thinking. You just have to pay attention.

Newsflash: there’s no perfect science to relationships. Everyone’s emotions are running high. Let me save you all the trouble and give everyone sound advice – don’t be a jerk! When breaking up with someone don’t prolong it when you know it’s over. Be honest and upfront with them.

So many times I wish a guy just said “hey I don’t want to date anymore” and cut it off.

You’re not doing the other person any favors by dragging it out. That’s when emotions tend to flare up because we’re pissed you could have saved us the trouble! Had to get that off my chest. Thanks for letting me rant.

*Please note I’m talking on behalf of heterosexual break-ups because that’s my personal experience. Feel free to share yours in the comments below.
