What Goes through Your Mind when He Says "We Need to Talk" ...


If “I love you” are the three most important words in a relationship, “we need to talk” are probably the four most dreaded.

As soon as you hear them or see them in a message, your mind goes into overdrive.

You spend the time between hearing them and the actual conversation biting your nails, chewing your lip, totally preoccupied by what “we need to talk” about.

Here are some of the thoughts that will go through your head.

1. Dumped


Well, that’s it.

He must have finally had enough of me, I’m definitely about to get dumped.

I can feel it in my waters!

2. Maybe Not

Maybe Not

Actually, why the hell would he dump me?2

I’m the best goddamn thing that’s ever happened to him!

How dare he even consider it!

3. Out of His League

Out of His League

Like, he has even said a million times that I am out of his league and he is lucky to have me, so why would he ruin all of that by breaking up with me now?

4. Future Visions

Future Visions

Oh my god.

Laura’s boyfriend dumped her six months ago and now she is 20 pounds heavier and rarely leaves the house.

Is that going to be me?

5. My Fault?

My Fault?

What have I done wrong?

Did I do something to hurt his feelings?3

I don’t remember upsetting him in any way!

6. Facebook


Uh oh, maybe he saw those pictures of me from Spring Break ’09 and wants a few explanations about some of the more risqué photos that were taken!

7. Ex Conversations

Ex Conversations

Or maybe he came across some wall posts that were shared between me and my ex a while back.

We were just being friendly and civil;

nothing to get worried about!

8. Deleted


I knew I should have deleted and blocked my ex from Facebook.

Nothing good was ever going to come of getting back in touch with him!
