Mostly As: Wow! Could you be doing anything more to get him to break up with you? You are very unhappy in your relationship and stopped caring a while ago. So much so that you can’t even bother to break up with him! Everything you’re doing is causing your perfectly nice man to want to call it quits. If he’s too nice to do it, you should bite the bullet and do it yourself.
Mostly Bs: Has your man done something to piss you off? The two of you are just going through a bit of a rough patch. Your behaviour shows that you don’t want to call it quits (or get him to call it quits) just as yet. The glimpses of affection are still there, but work out what’s making you unhappy.
Mostly Cs: You and your man are really content together. You don’t want to make him break up with you because you’re head over heels in love with him. You’re playing the doting girlfriend and we’re sure your man is lucky you’re not the type to play mind games with him.
