I think it would be more interesting to discuss what people say in actual relationships. For example:

"I just need some time to think."

"I just need some space."

"Let's just take a break for a while."

"I just need to focus more on my career right now"

"I just need to focus more on school right now."

"I think I need to be single for a while."

All of these mean the same thing: "I've met someone else and I am dumping you, but am too chiceknsh*t to say so openly."

"I want someone with an active lifestyle" and "I want someone who values being healthy" Translation: Just dont be fat.

"I like an independent man/woman". Translation: We're going to split everything 50/50 financially.

"I like a man/woman with their own life." Translation: I am distant so don't call me, I'll call you.

"I like a woman who is sensual (with a wink)." Translation: I'm a perv.

" I enjoy the finer things in life". Translation: If you're not upper-middle class to wealthy, get lost.

"No drama!!!" Translation: I'm jaded and cranky.
