It’s never fun when you have to let someone know you are no longer interested. I’ve been on both sides of this and I really don’t know which is the most awkward side! There are many reasons why we rule each other out (some of them are silly) but whatever the reason we check out, it’s the egos that suffer the most.
I know what you’re thinking. How can it be that people don’t see how wonderful you are? <<–That’s ego. I got a big one, too. So when you put your best foot forward and the person decides to end things, what is the best way to handle it? I can remember asking a guy a battery of “exit interview” kind of questions because I just could not grasp why he didn’t see how purrrrrfect we were for one another. It was a bad scene, man.
I almost understand why guys try to do all that they can to avoid the post-relationship carnage conversation. So when you have a big *cough* ego, how do survive the dating scene?
How do you handle it when someone you are trying to “let down easy” just won’t let you bow out graciously?
