| | When they dump you - old or not.
Try this when they dump you:
Tell her that you're really happy for her that she's figured out another path for herself.
If you suspect or she admits it about another guy, say you're very happy for her. Maybe get her a welcoming gift for her new relationship.
If she says it's not about another guy, try to find her one, quick. Otherwise everything that goes wrong along her new path will be your fault.
If she starts calling you often to test the waters on who's doing better after the dump, tell her that you'd rather not talk because you don't want to interfere with her choices while she's going down her new path.
If the guy she left you for dumps her, take a long vacation without disclosing your location.
If your married, give her the best car, even if you have to sign over title to her. The judge will give it to her anyway. Then right after signing the sep agreement or getting served papers, go out and buy a new car.
