My husband says that all men know 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. This way he can avoid her wrath.
He says that even if the woman hates the man and wants to be rid of him, if he’s the one who initiates the break-up, she’ll still get pissed and be likely to pull something.
He thinks this is uncanny but assures me all men know this and 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?
