Philosophy Break-Up Lines

My favorites:

The Solipsist: It’s not you, it’s me.
The Anti-Solipsist: There’s someone else.
The Presentist: There just isn’t any future for us.
The Eternalist: At least we’ll always have that weekend in Paris.
The Nominalist: I'm afraid of commitment.
The Moorean: Here’s one hand. Here’s another. What do I need you for?

Post your own!

Nominalist: I find you ontologically excessive.
Quine: There is no room for you in my web of belief
Isaac Berlin: You say there are positives, but it is the negatives which stand out for me.
Double effect theorist: This break-up is a foreseen but unintended consequence of me choosing to move on.
Compatiblist: Yes I know it’s up to me, but still, it was always going to end like this.
Mill: Honestly, I’d rather satisfy a pig than put up with your lack of satisfaction.
Crispin Wright: You play a narrow cosmological role for me.
Holist: You’ve gotta see the big picture.
Modal Fictionalist: You can still pretend that we are possibly together.
Lewis Carroll: Your a slithy tove!
