Im sure guys do this too...but Ive noticed it has alot to do with****ness(a very unattractive trait)..and when they think theyve found somethin better...the charade of being nice to you, suddenlt gooes away..and they could care less about what they say to you cause they think it'll never come back to them hope this made sense...I couldnt really think of a better way to say it

I think it is easier for people to be mad than to be hurt. I also think when breaking up if you try and be nice about it the person thinks your not serious. I was breaking up with a guy when I was a lot younger because he was a lot older and he got down on his knees and begged me not to. I should have been mean lol.

Depends on the reasons why you broke up. Who broke up with who? What you have done to each other? etc...

People get mean and ugly for a reason even if it is a misguided reason. Mostly because of hurt and pain...or someone trying to break you up...

Why NOt? You are hurt! if you "loved" with all your heart then you would be torn apart and that would just come out! Right?

Can you spell bitter ? How about immature ?

A person who is NOT bitter and IS mature will NOT say mean things to someone when breaking up. Its that simple !!!

Well, when you are living in a dream world that you see, feel, and believe is as secure as Fort Knox........ You for the most part, are happy for all intense purposes.

Then you hear those words, that pierce through every defense you thought you had to protect yourself from everyone except for the one that says "I do not love you anymore, or I am seeing someone else, or I want to move on with my life, or I want more from life, or I don't think it is working for us. or you don't turn me on like before, or I think we are just too different.... etc.. you know the words...

What we first react to ...is not the words we hear, but the feeling we feel, because of the thoughts we are thinkin of. ...Loss, betrayal, hurt, used, trash, pain, panic, memories no more, security, alone, void, starting over, etc, etc,

We want to lash out at the only one who, we think has created all this pain. and yet, we have only had our dream bubble, balloon, or hopes, bursted by a few words from our life, who we have put our hopes upon. We in asense revert back to our childhood, and react in our most basic emotions...to retaliate upon those who have hurt us. As we are stronger than a 1 year old who can only cry...
