What ever happened to “I’m just not that into you”? A man in Sydney, Australia chose to break up with his girlfriend by sending her a text message with six reasons why the couple were no longer copacetic. Why does he not see this relationship going anywhere? Well, there’s her reluctance to reveal how many sexual partners she has had, “which makes me think it is upwards of 3 and anything more than that is unacceptable,” her “unladylike” swearing, and perhaps most egregious of all, how she treats his friends … his feline friends, that is. “You are rude to my cat and that makes me feel uncomfortable.”
The text message has gone viral after it was shared on Twitter by a friend of the woman. “My friend just sent me this break-up message she received after 7 weeks of dating. My fav reason for split is #3,” she tweeted. The identities of the two former lovers remains unknown, but the woman did speak to an Australian news website, ninemsn, about her ex-boyfriend. “He was 30, had a job, a car and a house. Certainly not what I normally manage to attract, so I thought I was onto something,” she said. ”He was a bit of a nerd, perhaps a bit quiet, but a genuinely nice guy all the same.” She added that she is allergic to cats and that was why she was standoffish with his moggy. She will no longer date a man with a cat.
