Things got ugly: egos bruised and hearts battered. You and your lady have declared your relationship over…but is it really? So many couples do the on-again / off-again dance that your heartrending breakup may be no more than a genuine fakeup. Here’s how to tell if it’s for real:
Breakup: Women typically don’t hold back when talking to friends about their relationships – particularly once they’re over. If a rumour about your stuffed animal fetish surfaces, it’s over.
Fakeup: If you run into her girlfriends and you don’t get the stink eye – or better, they tell you how much they miss you – you’re probably on a break, not broken.
Breakup: You’re not having it. Or you are, but she cries afterwards.
Fakeup: You’re doing it frequently – and it’s better than ever. You agree – while cuddling – that you should really stop sleeping together.
Breakup: She’s defriended you on Facebook and changed all her passwords – not that you would ever break into her e-mail account.
Fakeup: You’re still together according to her Facebook status – and her daily comments on your photos also seem to indicate as much.
Breakup: She’s absent at social events she knows you’ll attend. Or she contacts you in advance to divvy up parties hosted by mutual friends.
Fakeup: She’s everywhere you are – even events she wouldn’t normally attend. If she wants to see you, she’ll find you. And she’ll probably look hot.
