Cooking up a storm, a recipe for disaster

Have you ever seen the film ‘How to lose a guy in 10 days’? Or rather, have you ever wished it for yourself? If so, I may have just the recipe you’re looking for…

Picture this: You’ve been dating a guy for a few months now and things were going well. But now you’re at a dull point in the relationship, where things seem to be winding down. So what do you do?

You could just break up with him, but the thought of receiving whiney 3am texts or having him stalk you on Facebook makes you think twice. The only option is to be a “man” about it.

What you need:

  • A dash of mischief
  • A pinch of drama


With a few suggestions to help you along the way, you’ll soon have enough ingredients to make him feel like small fry.

  • Turn up on a ‘guy’s night out’ and don’t leave his side.
  • Forget your purse the next time you go out – “Oops, it’s in my other bag…”
  • When queuing for the cinema, ask him to buy the popcorn. When he’s gone, sneakily ask for two tickets to see the latest cheesy rom-com.
  • Get a temporary tattoo and write his name in the middle. “Tattoos are for life, just like you”
  • Reorganise his cupboards; make up, hair products, at-home waxing kit, razors…you get the drift!

He’ll soon realise that being with you, is not all it’s cracked up to be.
