The Plan: A Phone call is the way to go. Keep it short and simple, and sweet. Just don’t stop calling completely. Explain to her that you had a wonderful time, but you’re just not feeling the long term connection.
The Reason: The honestly will pay off in the long run. It’ll save her and her gal pals endless hours of wine drinking, playing the game “What happen and why he’s a jerk”. It’s sorta like a band-aid, it will only sting for a second and that’s it. Plus using the cell, avoids that “Smile to Frown” when it’s face to face.
The Catch: Beware of the chick who reallys wants to stay in touch. She might be just a little clingy. If it gets to worriesome.. let’s Thank God for Caller ID and Voicemail.
