Breaking up with someone isn't easy, so we shouldn't be too surprised when people royally screw it up.

But if you think you already had enough with someone, then some words have to be uttered.

Personally speaking, the break-up excuse I came up with was that "our relationship won't work out as you know we have totally different personalities, and you deserve better." What was yours?

I've heard a lot of others break-up excuses from American movies. I'm going to list some top ones, and see if you've used any of them before.

Common Breakup Excuse #1: “I love you but I’m not in love with you.”
Translation: “I’m not attracted to you anymore. Sure, I might have been in the past but those feelings are long gone.“
Life is what you make of it

Translation:

Once again,

“I’m not attracted to you anymore.”
Life is what you make of it

I‘m afraid our relationship can't work in future. Then, it will hurt you more. Take care of yourself with or without me.
