Would You Like Fries With That?

Why guys don't want to be friends with a girl whoÂ breaks up with them...
I know a girl who broke up with a guy and she told him she wanted to "still be friends." He said, "No thanks." She wondered why he couldn't fall back to beingÂ just friends after they had a romantic relationship. I came up with theÂ "McDonalds Analogy" to try and explain it in a simple way that would help allÂ women understand this tough question.
Imagine if you went to McDonalds a lot and ordered a Big Mac Combo meal. A BigÂ Mac, Large Fries and a Coke. You really like this meal. One day, you pull up toÂ the drivethrough and order the Big Mac Combo meal and the girl tells you, "I'mÂ sorry - you can have the Big Mac and the Coke, but you can't get fries with thatÂ anymore." You think about this for a moment, and sure - the Big Mac is theÂ centerpiece of the meal, but McDonalds has some really good fries and you likeÂ their fries with your meal. So you say, "I've been able to get fries with thatÂ before, why can't I have fries with my Big Mac combo anymore?" The girls says,Â "Well, I just think it is better if you only have the Big Mac and the Coke fromÂ here on out."
At this point, a lot of guys are going to go to Wendy's or BK and see if theyÂ can get fries with their combo at that drivethrough window. But there are someÂ guys who REALLY like McDonalds Big Macs and they might think, "If I keep comingÂ here and ordering the Big Mac and Coke, maybe she'll change her mind and give meÂ some fries with that later." So they will keep on getting the combo without theÂ fries until the deal breaker happens: One day that guy is going to order the BigÂ Mac and Coke and then he's going to pull up a little bit to pay, and someoneÂ else is going to pull up to the drivethrough speaker and order the "Big MacÂ Combo" and he is going to hear the girl say, "Would you like fries with that?"
That's why guys don't like to be friends with a girl who breaks up with them.
