8. Mr. Just About To Break Up With Someone Else. He’s not going to break up, divorce or otherwise end it with her. I’m sorry, but he’s just not. If you really, really like him, tell him to give you a call exactly one month AFTER he’s officially single (and you have proof). If you become his other woman, he’ll never break things off with his main lady – and he may never respect you in the future. If I’m wrong, I’ll buy you a box of wine.
