What Not to Say (5)

What Not to Say to a Single (or Newly Single) Person

1.Don’t say: “You were too good for him.”
Why: You are basically saying she has bad taste. And you’ll be embarrassed if they ever patch it up.
Instead say: “His loss!” It gets the same point across without disparaging her judgment.

2.Don’t say: “I’m glad you got rid of him. I never liked him anyway.”
Why: She’ll wonder about your fake adoration for him while they were together. Instead say: “I’m confident you’ll find someone who will give you exactly what you want.” It focuses on what’s to come, not on the guy you’re glad she’s done with.

3.Don’t say: “How could someone as perfect as you still be single?”
Why: A statement like this comes off as a backhanded compliment. What she hears is “What’s wrong with you?”
Instead say: “Seeing anyone?” If she’s tight-lipped about her love life, move on to other topics.

May I add one more thing, sis?

Don't Say: "So, you just broke up. What's the big deal?"
Why: She will hate you, obviously. You are a really mean girl.
Instead Say: "Well, at least now you can start it all over again. Find someone else better. Go wash your face and let's go have a cup of Starbucks' cappuccino"
