There are occasional concern-troll-y musings about how this is bad for the one doing the cut-off as well – the subtitle, after all is “Cutting off exes not only hurts our former partners Cutoff culture is violent in its own ways.

Break-ups are the ending of relationships, the cutting of ties.

Once you’ve broken up with somebody, they don’t owe you anything except giving your shit back.

Emma’s last note included the phrase, “Apparently, what I want seems irrelevant to you.” She didn’t realize the irony that what I wanted had long been irrelevant to her.

Being on the receiving end of a cutoff, surrounded by friends and culture that just expect you to get over it, can leave you feeling utterly powerless. In fact, I’m fairly sure the mind just curled up in the corner, making “buh-buh-buh” sounds as it flicks its finger over its lips. You don’t have to justify them and you sure as shit don’t get to dictate terms afterwards.

Every once in a while, the universe likes to drop a subject in my lap.

Last week, several of my readers forwarded me an article on Medium called “Shining Light on Cutoff Culture“, a think piece by one Jeff Reifman, about closure and communication.

At the last minute, she canceled our first night out as friends and tearfully said she needed a week of space.

I left the ball in her court and didn’t hear back from her. It was a very painful time for me, and she later acknowledged that it was for her as well.

Saying “I want to stay friends” ((In those moments where they’re being serious rather than trying to make the break-up less awkward)) is a someone wants to make an effort to make sure you’re ok afterwards, that’s very sweet of them. I consider not causing someone unnecessary pain to be key part of being a good man rather than an asshole.
