One song says breaking up is hard to do -- another says there must be 50 ways...

Just slip out the back Jack
Make a new plan Stan
Don't need to be coy Roy
Just take it from me...

What are the best/worst breakup lines you've ever used, had used on you, or -- what line should a person of fame use... such as..

Jolene Blalock -- 'I need space'

Or -- what's the most outrageous breakup story you ever heard?

The field is wide open -- have fun

The best one I ever had is when I found out my ex-boyfriend was having a baby with another girl.  That pretty much killed it for me. lol  

another one was when one of my ex boyfriends sent me a letter from jail.  Nice touch I thought.  Being in jail would be a pretty good reason. lol

The worst I ever used was "(expletive) yourself" SLAM!!!! (telephone).
The worst ever used against me was when I went to the Dispensary for my annual physical when I was in the Marine Corps, and had the STD corpsman- who happened to be a friend of mine- come out calling for my, then, girlfriend. I kinda figured it was over at that point.
The best was when an ex-fiance and I sat down over a cup of coffee and very calmy discussed why it was neither of us was happy in the relationship, and that we both felt it was best to end it. No tears, no hurt feelings, just an understanding.

We are all equal but we’re individually different
and able to reach the impossible if we try.

"Just hop on the bus, Gus.
Don't need to discuss much.
Just drop off the key, Lee
and get yourself free."

Oh... ..sorry.  I can't really think of any lines that
stand out right now, but the song jumped off the page at me.  
Reason?...because, when I was about 12 or 13, and that song
was popular? (dating myself here) my 'boyfriend' re-wrote it into
'50 Ways To GET A Lover', and gave it to me...LOL

Thanks for the memories, LR.

Who applies for the job of STD Corpsmen???  Huh??  Who???

"Yes Mommy when I grow up, I want to treat people for sexually transmitted diseases!"

What a proud moment...

As for the thread topic~

The only time someone ever dumped me he came over and told me he had gotten married...and as for me I usually (this is bad) wait until an issue comes up then make a big deal out of it...god I am a horrible chicken beep person.

'At least I told you this time, not like when we were kids.'

ha! he thought he'd grown up? he made more sense when he was younger! what an idiot.

and...once, shamefully, i said, i need a break, for a week, i'll phone you then, and never did.....he was clingy, and it was supposed to be casual. thats my excuse.

and yep, i've had the, I'm having a baby, with someone else!

oh! and my first love, out dancing, my best friend comes up to me in floods of drunken tears, I've just kissed your boyfriend!

I sobbed, and hugged my best friend, whom i just couldn't seem to get mad with, no matter how devastated iwas. odd. well, she was in more of a state than i was. he he.

thanks, it was fun reminiscing!

Instant karma's gonna get you.

I think my worst breakup was when I broke it off with my last serious boyfriend.  I began to realize my life could be in danger and was afraid.  So, I e-mailed him telling him that I wasn't ready for commitment, etc.  Must have confused him into disbelief because he fought.  Well, when he finally got the point that I was NOT changing my mind, he said I would regret it.  I didn't leave my house for 2 wks.  When I finally left it, there he was, sitting in his car...just to let me know he was STILL watching.  

Things are settled down by now, but man, watch out for the psychos! :-)

Miah -- now isn't that petty breaking up with someone just because he had a baby with someone else?  how unforgiving (just kidding)

Ringo -- I have to wonder... in the first example did she deserve it?  I once had one accuse ME of giving her an STD -- but -- I was clean -- and she was embarrassed -- and -- alone.  

Vicky -- glad you got a tickle -- that's the whole point -- to get us to laugh at ourselves eh?

Deer -- of course with you around we don't have to laugh at ourselves!   thanks -- but -- it's actually 50 ways to lose your liver!  just drink all the jack, jack... drink beer from the can stan, have another tall-boy roy, .....

OOH Susan -- the stealth stiffer... heh...

Sunshine -- He told you her name?  a... um... no comment...

Gem -- always great to put it all in perspective later isn't it?

Well KristieSue -- I've had my share of fatal attractions -- and fetal attractions -- the ones that come back with 'I'm Pregnant' as soon as you try to break up with them...

but -- I've had them all I guess -- I need space; I need a break; It's not you, it's me; Can't we just be friends? ; I'm going to be washing my hair every night for the next ten years;  You're too deep;  You're too intense;  You call me too much; You don't call enough... um...; There's someone else; You're unapproachable; .... I'll try to think of some more later...

As for the other side of things -- it depends on who she is and what her style is -- but -- with the right woman if you just bring up marriage she'll be flattered while escorting you to the door... heh..

Karilea -- I'm trying to figure that last one out?  Too comfortable??????  Yikes....

A  loooonnnggg time ago, my then boyfriend and I decided that we were just too good of friends, so we needed to just stay friends and break up. duh??

Now I know better. That's the best,  being best friends with who you're in love with.

Can ya'll imagine...us breaking up because we were too  close!!

The line that always made me the maddest was
"It's not you, it's me."
The one I thought was the funniest was when a friend who was in her late 20's and he was 18 was trying to get him to understand for days that she no longer wanted to see him. She asked him "Do you like sex?" He said "yes". She then asked "Do you like travel?" Again he said "Yes". She said "Good!! Take a (expletive) hike!!" She was pretty well in the tank by the time she had the nerve to tell him this. He left though and never came back.

LOL...then I guess, by your response to my second post, you "haven't had 'em all."  Quite the break-up line.  "You make me too comfortable.  Like I could live here, and be happy."  Fear of being comfortably happy.  Not wanting the rug pulled out from underneath, later.

Go figure.
