When you've really got it bad for someone, it's tempting to shut off logic and ignore the verbal red flags. But pay attention to the stuff that comes flying out of his mouth.
No longer content to just smile and start over, women want answers from the men who waved them goodbye. Luckily, one male writer was brave enough to offer up a few suggestions as to why guys dump girls they dig. We're not saying we agree with them, but listen up ladies. You'll need to know how to deal if on the receiving end of one of these excuses.
Guys, we love you. You make our hearts swoon, you're the fathers of our children, you are advisors, companions and friends, but there are certain gender-specific things you do that drive women nuts.

Your momma raised you wrong if you find it hard to flush and lower before leaving the bathroom.
Geeky men are the best kept secret in the dating world. We've hoarded this info for years, but since spring is here and the weather is finally lightening, we're feeling generous and will pass along this kernel of wisdom to you, dear readers.

He won't take you for granted. 2.) A massive ego is less likely. 3.) No worries about revealing your geeky side. 4.) Use him as your style canvas.
Before you get your moral molars all empacted and whatnot, we'll make vividly clear that this list by no means endorses having an affair and ruining a perfectly good marriage (or an imperfect one, for that matter). Hear us out. Whether single or taken, flirting is fun.

Only Madonna, Ritchie, a marriage therapist (and perhaps a therapist's nosy administrative assistant) will ever know whether the former couple really drew up a "love pact." But it does perk our interest. Should we all have one of these? Are they only for the rich and famous? With the right guidelines, can they improve—and in some cases—save a marriage?
