1. “I need more time to focus on school/my career”
What they really mean: “I want to see what else is out there and don’t want to be tied down by someone”
Consider this being let down easy. They didn’t want to hurt your feelings, so they went for the “I’m too busy to be in a relationship with you” way out. They’ll probably be dating someone new in a week. And maybe things are hectic for them right now, but the right person will take time out of their busy schedule just for you, because you’re that awesome!
2. “We’re moving too fast”
What they really mean: “Things are starting to get serious and I’m freaking out”
So things have been going smoothly thus far and all of a sudden they spring this on you. Maybe they’ve been hurt before and are afraid of getting close to someone again. More than likely, they’re just not ready for a serious commitment. Let’s be honest, who wouldn’t want to be committed to a sweetheart like you?
3. “I think we should take a break”
What they really mean: “I want to see what else is out there”
The only difference between a break and a break-up is the false hope of soon getting back together. And maybe you will get back together, but it probably won’t be for long. Trust me; they’re already private messaging other girls on twitter.
Break-ups are hard, but breaking up with someone can also be hard. It’s best to not harbor harsh feelings toward each other; this helps the process of moving on. Unless one of these reasons was sent to you via text message. In which case, he’s a jerk and you don’t need that kind of negativity in your life.
