Don’t Go Bringing Oprah Into This

At this stage in my dating career, I thought I had heard every plausible, lame excuse for ending a relationship.

“I don’t see this as working.”

Yup, heard it. Many times, in fact.

“It’s not you, it’s me.”

Standard line, but I appreciate the intent to be kind and gentle.

“I need to focus on my career.”

In today’s economy who doesn’t?

But recently someone superseded the ridiculous and unloaded the granddaddy of reasons for a breakup: “You watch Oprah.”

Weekly Dating Dope

Whatever reason a man provides for the demise of his marriage is likely to be far from the truth. No man on earth would dare confess that the reason his wife divorced him is because he left the toilet seat up.

Weekly Dating Dope

The “Ambivalent Man” is another type on the dating scene to avoid.  One minute he can’t get enough of you, professing love and adoration, the next he’s trying to pickup underage girls on the Internet.  He’ll pull you in with gifts and declarations of “you’re the one,” and then two days later turn ice cold, and announce he’s not ready for a commitment and needs to devote time more time to his dog.  It’s not a relationship, but a roller coaster ride with someone undecided, maybe even a little coocoo.  People have been killed on roller coaster rides, so think twice before getting involved.
