My second nuts and bolts post is about one of my favorite banter themes. Breaking up.
At some point in the conversation, if she says something (anything), go for it.
“You know, it is over between us. I’m SO sorry it had to come out here, tonight, in this bar of all places. It’s… I know we’ve had some good times baby, but, well, it’s not you, it’s me. I need YOU to be strong. Find love again. We’ll always have the good times… that wild night in Vegas… those times you did that thing I like so much…”
“Oh, baby, who am I kidding! I could never quit you!”
Maybe you get the idea. I always really ham it up when I do this. I get really melodramatic, so it is CLEAR that this is a joke. When it is working well, the girl will play along with the heart break, give her own reasons it is over, etc.
If you wanna get into it more, have some fun talkign about the wild adventures that “you have had over the years”, tell her you want to keep the cat, or whatever else you can think of that has to do with breaking up. Two more words: makeup sex.
Go out and have fun with this one, and post your questions and thoughts as a comment!
