professional breakup service -would this work in Cambodia?

Hi folks,

the more I think about it, the more it makes sense to me. But it might be somehow dangerous.

As the eternal traveler to the Kingdom of Wonder, I doubt such a service would work. This break up service sends a text, email, phone call, nothing in person.

Most Khmer better halves (with CEO’s demographics, mostly female) are heavily invested in relationships. Their future is merged with yours. A text telling them they have no future isn’t going to work.

Sometimes (at least for some members of CEO) telling them face to face that their future is over doesn’t work either.

Khmer women are like The Force. They bind the relationship together. There is no try with them. Do. Or do not.

You need startrek training. Asian girls are Klingons.
A friend told me

1) stop giving her money and she will find someone else very quick
2) get a new girlfriends who is bigger than her
3) Run away to Vietnam for a while (my preferred option)

Joking apart there is a professional break up service. If she creates you call the police and they will negotiate a suitable divorce settleent. If you are actually wed its the village chiefs duty

The cowards card, or
face to face like a man and cop the responsibilities for your own choices
simple choice, no ambiguities on this this one

Who are you? Man, or a grub gone to ground.

(revision; there may be some extreme circumstances that legitimately negate this - but not simply because you are chicken livered)

First of all, to be clear, I'm not really breaking up with my girlfriend, Angela. We just wanted to test the service. I asked her in advance if it was cool, and she said yes. I could have ordered a breakup without telling her, but I feel like that would have been a not very funny prank. As you'll see, it was a little uncomfortable even with advance warning.

:facepalm:

I'll just ask permission for this.

CEO should set up paid service for dating 101.
