STILL confused as to why your last girlfriend left so unexpectedly when you thought it was all still a bed of roses? Here are a few possible reasons.
1. You got too complacent
We don’t mind chilling by your side as you watch footie but doing that every weekend kinda sucks. It’s highly likely that when you slot us into the friend zone we’ll move right out of it and find someone more willing to show us we’re great.
2. You cheated
Did you really expect us to stick around after finding out you’ve been playing the field with people we know?
3. There was no intellectual chemistry
We’re not asking you to be Einstein, okay, but using your book only as a coaster for your beer is a major turn-off. Even if it’s reading only comics, we like a little intellect in the man who might be a future kid’s father.
4. You were just not motivated enough
Being just okay is never okay. We like go-getters who love what they do.
5. You lost the spontaneity
We know your favourite restaurant has the best burger in town but, honestly, we could do with a bit of variety. A little surprise goes a long way – and going to a different branch of the same franchise won’t cut it.
6. You were 50 different shades of grey
To this day, we’re still not sure whether this was just some fling or an actual relationship. This grey undefined area remains challenging and interesting for only a while. You missed the boat when you didn’t commit.
7. You were way too clingy
Overwhelming us with instant messages, emails, calls and Facebook shares of every single thing that reminds you of us is cute for about half a day. After that it’s just creepy.
8. You complicated everything
So maybe you love drama but seeking a fight about everything is unnecessary. Fighting about Hartebeespoort Dam versus Kruger National Park can be tiring after the first five times.
9. You were too dodgy
Two phones? Enough said.
10. You didn’t have any friends
Okay, so we love that you were kind who favoured quality over quantity with your circle of friends – until it became clear you were just a social climber. Nothing puts a girl off more than knowing her beau wants to party with her pals more than spend time with her.
