1. Go to Barnes & Noble.
Split up. Tell him you need to find a book your friend told you about and that you’ll meet him in five minutes. And then go to the vegan cookbook section and find the book Veganist by Kathy Freston. If he follows you, he’s insecure. He’s a puppy dog. He’s a child. He has mommy issues. Cut the cord and end it. If he wanders off to the political philosophy, military history, religious, EL James, or music sections, he’s a keeper. He has his own interests. He has substance. This is crucial. You don’t want to be dating a stage 5 clinger nor do you want to be with someone who only reads Muscle & Fitness magazine. Ditching him in a bookstore is also a great way to get some space and mental clarity. My favorite dates include long periods of time when I’m not physically near the person I’m dating. Like sporting events when I send him to go get me a drink every 5 minutes. Or when I stand in front of a restaurant bathroom mirror and stare at myself for the duration of his appetizer. Or in movie theaters when I say I have to go to the restroom and I actually go watch whatever Nicholas Sparks-inspired film is playing next door.
