Top 10 Break-Up Lines
Oi gente, hi everyone! Paloma here. Welcome to Top 10 Break-Up Lines!
1. Acho que a gente precisa dar um tempo. "I think we need a break."
If you don’t really want to break up with the person, but you just need a time to think about yourself, and the relationship, you can say:
Acho que a gente devia dar um tempo. "I think we need a break."
2. É que eu não estou pronto para este tipo de relacionamento. "I'm just not ready for this kind of relationship."
So if you’re just hanging out and you’re more than friends, but you don’t really want to be his girlfriend or her boyfriend, you can say…
É que eu não estou pronto pra este tipo de relacionamento. "I'm just not ready for this kind of relationship."
3. Eu preciso de espaço. "I need space."
So if you have a “amor sufocante” like a choking relationship, where you can’t breath, the person doesn’t want you to do anything, you can say:
Eu preciso de espaço. "I need space."
4. A gente devia sair com outras pessoas. "We should start seeing other people."
This is a subtle way to say you don’t want to hang out with the person anymore.
Não tá dando certo. A gente devia sair com outras pessoas. "It's not working out. We should start seeing other people."
5. Eu preciso focar na minha carreira. "I need to focus on my career."
So this is a phrase people usually use when they don’t want to be in a very serious relationship.
Eu preciso focar na minha carreira. "I need to focus on my career."
6. Vamos ser apenas amigos. "Let's just be friends."
You know that guy you have a crush on, and you’re always trying to impress him? And, you know, just make him notices you? It’d be pretty bad if he comes to you and say…
Vamos ser apenas amigos. "Let's just be friends."
Yeah, it’d break your heart, right?
7. Nós nos tornamos distantes. "We've grown apart."
Especially in movies we always see that, that they are a couple that is always together, and then they start growing apart. So, if you don’t want to be with the person anymore because you don’t match anymore, you can say…
Nós nos tornamos distantes. "We've grown apart."
8. Nós não fomos feitos um para o outro. "We were just not right for each other."
Here in Brazil we say “metade da laranja” “the other half of the orange”, that would be the perfect person for you. So you can say “You’re not the perfect person for me.” Você não é a pessoa perfeita pra mim.
Nós não fomos feitos um para o outro. "We're just not right for each other."
9. Eu não sou bom o bastante pra você. "I'm not good enough for you."
This is another way to be subtle and doesn’t criticize the other person. So you just say bad things about you.
Eu não sou boa o suficiente pra você. "I'm not good enough for you."
10. É que eu não te amo mais. "I just don't love you anymore."
I think that would be the saddest phrase to say to someone. That you just don’t love him or her anymore!
Desculpa, mas é que eu não te amo mais. "I'm sorry, but I just don't love you anymore."
The end! Okay, that’s enough of sad sentences for today! I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope you don’t have to hear these phrases ever! See you next time! Tchau!
