According to my husband, all men know that if they break up with a woman, there will be repercussions. Consequently, when a man wants to break up with a woman he’ll often get her to break up with him so he can avoid her wrath.
He says that even if the woman hates the man and wants to be rid of him, if he is the one who initiates the break-up, she will still get pissed and is likely to pull something.
He thinks this is uncanny but assures me all men know that that this is how it goes. They’re smart enough to not to take that risk.
Have you ever manipulated someone into breaking up with you, so you could walk away unscathed?
