We’ve all been there. You’re in a relationship and you sense the other party has lost interest. In order to save face and avoid wasting any more time on something that is going nowhere, you break it off first. Maybe you say, “Ha ha. Beat you to the punch,” or maybe you’re far more mature than I. In any case, it just wasn’t meant to be.

He’s got a new girl now. She’s smart and pretty, and I think she’s about to dump him on his ass.
