its not you its me.

When a man breaks up with a woman why do they use the line its you not me? I was just wondering that because ive heard so many people say things like this weather it be on movies or i have even been told this.

I was talking to a friend yesterday and we got to talking about what men say when they aren't interested and we came up with the reasons of "i wanna keep my options open". "i aint ready for a relationship right now", "i will keep it in mind and let ya know". These are just a few that we have heard and laughed about last night. I know the guys think they are explaining it so us women can understand but it just confuses me more then anything.

This one guy that i know he doesn't have a gf and has been single for a long time now and he was asked out by my friend and she told me he said he wanted to keep his options open. So is that mean hes looking for something better or does he have someone he likes or just that he doesn't want her and don't want to hurt her feelings?

Men thoughts are different from ours, maybe yes, He already have someone he likes but not the right time, or maybe he don't want to offend anyone, yes your options maybe right....but men are men....they have a lot of things in mind we cannot perceive.

I have used the phrase "It isn't you, it is me" before. It really was my decision to end the relationship right there and than. As we had different views when it came to ADHD and how to handle kids with it. he liked to yell. I couldn't stomach that.
