Where are your killing fields?

johnboy 9 December 2010 17

So recently an amazing young lady of my acquaintance invited me to coffee at Debacle in Braddon.

And my heart sank. Because when women want to dump me they *always* invite me to coffee at Debacle.

In a way it’s great because I can get over it by the time they lower the boom.

So in that spirit where do you take people to dump them? Or where do you get taken?

Anecdotes current to the last few years please.

Times like those you should suggest just grabbing a Dare iced coffee instead.

Mine seems to be my kitchen.. Where I do most of the dumping anyhow, evil place I knew it 😉

Yeah what is it about Debacle? Every time I get to meet a new girl I suggest we meet at Debacle, and over coffee we play the dating game, I tell her about my passion for World of Warcraft and how environmentally friendly keeping my Renault 4 going is, and she tels me about her hopes and aspirations of finding true long-term love and all the romantic hullabaloo that is associated with those sorts of relationships, and every time after I’ve had to visit the loo they disappear, not so much as an sms even.

I dunno, does anyone know a dating site where my kind of girl can be found?

4Chan?

Antigo. Gaaah.

Incidentally, why do so many females want to sit and have a coffee (or even worse, a meal) when they’re breaking up with you? Have been out of the dating game for ages now but still remember thinking it was incredibly insensitive for someone to sit there and tell you in excruciating detail the reasons why they didn’t want to be with you.

Do it quickly and get it over with, I say.

Maybe you should try dating a girl who has coffee at happy times. Then when she dumps you she’ll have to invite you for beer!

Debacle is great if you’re into beer and food. It’s the invite to coffee that must be approached with caution!

Google Chat!

Then seal the deal by abusive songwriting.

Seriously, though, I wouldn’t go to Debacle for a break up or even if the love of my life was on his knees with flowers and an awesome book. I need to start vetting your dates for taste and style.

Sorry to hear the bummer news JohnBoy.

My now ex-wife gave me the flick over the phone while I was overseas on a business trip. Great news to hear at 2am. I thought at the time that it was lower than a snakes arsehole to treat me like that. And upon reflection, I still do, but it was typical behaviour and I’m well rid of her.

I just pull up my pants and walk out of the toilet cubicle.

I don’t have killing fields, but my ex’s always seem to use one of my mates’ beds.

Yep, I have a similar vibe with Debacle. Maybe it’s the name?

So, were JB’s worst fears realised?
