Shining Light on Cutoff Culture
Cutting off exes not only hurts our former partners but limits our own growth as well.
i just wanted to share this amazing article with you guys, written by 44 year old ex-Microsoft MILLIONAIRE jeff reifman, about the…
….I don’t think this article deserves this harsh of criticism. She should have talked to him after she had her cool down time, and closed the relationship off. She sounds immature, and he hits the nail on the head about sympathy to males during a break up. He had TV and cats, not shoulders to cry on. Maybe it’s because I work emotionally with males in Tech, but I completely see where he’s coming from. He’s not alone in these sentiments or experiences. Without being told what went wrong, the man will keep thinking and thinking and thinking about what went wrong. It’s cruel.
To clarify also, he did not go to her workplace to talk or win her back, he went because it was a restaurant. His date wanted to take him there, so what? To avoid that restaurant would be unhealthy, and doesn’t make sense if he’s moved on and dating someone new.
I hope this article was cathartic for him, and I think it’s a very accurate depiction of the careless people have with dating and the emotions involved.
(If you’re in an abusive relationship, where it’s a danger to your health to be near the person, then that’s a different situation, as he said. But this case, her actions focused on how she felt, and not how both of them felt. And common theme in our society. Regardless of gender.)
