Love is a real bitch, right? I mean, you’d think with all the technology (and hilarious Tinder profiles) we have that everyone would be happy by now. But no, most of us are miserable little loveless turds. Those of us guys who do escape the single’s night at The Sizzler might find ourselves with a delightful young lady, thinking everything is going hunky-dory, and then it happens: the unexpected breakup line. But what does it mean? Nothing you think? You’d be very wrong.

It’s kind of like getting slapped in the nuts by a handwritten letter with perfect grammar. You might not think you’ve been dumped lately but think back on the ends of some of your recent dating failures and see if maybe there was some hidden meaning behind the breakup excuse.

The success of a good breakup fake-out is whether or not you even realize how good she got you. Now have a look at 10 popular breakup lines that sound like you’re not at fault, but you totally are, and what they really translate to.
