When you tell your friends that you never even saw it coming, there’s no such thing as a “nice” break-up. It’s a punch to the heart, a crush to the ego and a paralyzing zap to your spirit which – in the weepy weeks that follow those four ominous words “We need to talk” – leave you wondering what, exactly, went wrong in a relationship that seemed so destined for Happily Ever After. To add insult to injury, the person who initiates the split will often frame this decision in the vein of a mysterious flaw on his/her part that no amount of love, time or energy could ever remedy. “It’s not You,” they confess, “it’s Me.” Seriously? How can they even say that with a straight face? Do they really want you to believe that they not only deem themselves so unworthy to remain in the same zip code with you but that you’re also much too kind to ever hurt their feelings by dumping them first? •What they want you to feel is that you should have tried harder to sustain the relationship by being a lot less pedestal-perfect. •What they want you to say is that you’ll do anything – including the forgiveness of shoddy behavior - to keep them around. •How they least expect you to react is to agree with them, for under the laws of romantic attraction nothing is more confusing than having the person you just rejected actually thank you and walk away. “It’s Not Me, It’s You & Other Tales of Romance” is a lighthearted look at how to build a bridge and get over it.
