“Saving Love Lives The World Over!” e-mail e-mail to a friend in need

It’s not you, it’s me, eh?

Filed under: News,Psychology — posted by Maria @ 2:14 pm

Maybe it won’t surprise any of you to find out that roughly 50% of Canadians — reputed to be the politest people in the Northern hemisphere (the Minnesotans being too polite to challenge them) — break up in private places, mainly their own homes, so as not to embarrass the other person. (Or, um, because it’s cold outside?)

The Vancover Sun article bearing the news — based on a recent poll by Ipsos Reid — quotes psychology professor Guy Grenier as saying, “I suppose that’s probably a good indication of relationship etiquette.” I suppose. But just because a breakup happens in private doesn’t mean it feels private. I mean, the most humiliating place I was ever broken up with was in my own bedroom. Would have been private, I guess, if there hadn’t been a PARTY going on downstairs. I’ll cry if I want to, thanks!

By the way, call me an impolite New Yorker, but aren’t they focusing on the wrong half of the respondents? I mean, where are all those other people breaking up? Gretzky’s?

(By the way #2, the comments section here would be a good place to share your own good/bad/ugly breakup-location stories. Especially you, our neighbors to the north.)

  2. No matter if some one searches for his essential thing,
    thus he/she wishes to be available that in detail, thus that thing is maintained over here.

  7. Howdy are using WordPress for your blog platform?
    I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and create my
    own. Do you require any html coding expertise to make your own blog?
    Any help would be really appreciated!

  8. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and
    now each time a comment is added I get four e-mails with
    the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Thank you!

  9. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging to get
    that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appeal.
    I must say you’ve done a amazing job with this.
    Additionally, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Opera.
    Superb Blog!
