While flipping through a copy of People recently, I saw that in the "out" section of a recent Style Watch "in" and "out" list—sandwiched between things like "stainless steel home decor" and "molten chocolate cake"—was "long distance relationships."

This struck me as something that really could never be either in or out, so I had to hear the explanation.

"It's part of a new green, eco-conscious attitude: Break up with your out-of-state boyfriend or girlfriend because it's not sustainable, and date local!" Jennifer Ganshirt of Frank About Women, a marketing-to-women consulting firm, told the mag.

Granted, it makes for a lot of fantastic break-up lines: "Colin, it's not you, it's the environment," or, "I think we should see more sustainable people" or even, "There's another woman: Mother Earth."

But beyond the fact that this is taking the green thing a little too far, is there seriously anyone who would actually use an excuse like this to break it off? 

Apparently, there is. After quizzing friends, it turns out that there are even more lame ways to pull the plug. A few examples include:

"You're too nice. I don't deserve someone who's nice."—Christopher, who didn't deserve to hear a real reason for being dumped, either, it seems.
