  • three important rules for breaking up
    don't put off breaking up when you know you want to
    prolonging the situation only makes it worse
    tell him honestly simply kindly but firmly
    don't make a big production
    don't make up an elaborate story
    this will help you avoid a big tear-jerking scene
    if you want to date other people, say so
    be prepared for the boy to feel hurt and rejected
    even if you've gone together for only a short time
    and haven't been too serious
    there's still a feeling of rejection when somebody says
    she prefers the company of others to your exclusive company
    but if you're honest and direct
    and avoid making a flowery emotional speech
    when you break the news
    the boy will respect you for your frankness
    and honestly, he'll appreciate the kind straight-forward manner
    in which you told him your decision
    unless he's a real jerk or a cry-baby you'll remain friends

    i'm head of the class
    i'm a quarterback
    my mom says i'm a catch
    i'm never last picked
    i'm a cheerleading chick

    being attractive is the most important thing there is
    if you want to catch the biggest fish in your pond
    you have to be as attractive as possible
    make sure to keep your hair spotlessly clean
    wash it at least every two weeks
    once every two weeks
    and if you see johnny football hero in the hall
    tell him he played a great game
    (tell him you liked his article in the newspaper)

    i'm the party star
    i've got my own car
    i'll never get caught
    i'm the teacher's pet
    i make football bets

    i propose we support a one-month limit on going steady
    i think it would keep people more able to deal with weird situations
    get to know more people
    i think if you're ready to go out with johnny
    now's the time to tell him about your one-month limit
    he won't mind
    he'll appreciate your fresh look on dating
    and once you've dated someone else
    you can date him again
    i'm sure he'll like it, everyone will appreciate it
    you're so novel, what a good idea
    you can keep your time to yourself, you don't need date insurance
    you can go out with whoever you want to
    every boy, every boy in the whole world could be yours
    if you'll just listen to my plan
    the teenage guide (to popularity)

    i'm head of the class
    i'm a quarterback
    my mom says i'm a catch
    i'm never last picked
    i got a cheerleading chick
    i'm the party star
    i've got my own car
    i'll never get caught
    i'm the teacher's pet
    i make football bets
