I always enjoy your articles, Bonnie. I think men (and women) feel uncomfortable and don’t know what to say when they want to end it. “You’re amazing” is like the proverbial “It’s not you, it’s me”. Saying something positive before they say something negative and bring down the hatchet. If only they could just say what they need to say without trying to butter up first. Ugh.
