Virtual Breakups: 50 Ways to Delete Your Lover

  • “I’m sorry, you seem like a really nice person, but I’m not interested.”
  • “Sorry, it is not working out. I don’t want to hurt you and lead you on. Good luck and hope you find someone.”
  • “No, thank you. Please don’t ask again.”
  • “No. If you persist, I will complain to Sys Admin.”
  • “I’m sorry, I only date people with an IQ in the positive integers.”
  • “I’m short, fat, ugly, and I stink!”
  • As you determine how you would “delete your lover,” imagine how it would feel if these things were being done or said to you. Choose methods in alignment with your ethics and add them to your repertoire. Would you make a different choice if you were looking in the person’s eyes?
