Can Eva revamp the art of cheating?

Eva Longoria told Britain’s Eve magazine: "I end up overlapping people
because I know I’m over the relationship, so I move on without telling
them. It’s not good. I’ve never broken up with someone successfully." .

Interesting way of looking at it, Eva. I mean, I’m pretty sure that logic works only in your head, as your ex-boyfriend(s) might see your overlapping and raise you one (possible several) count(s) of cheating. But I’m going to give Eva the benefit of the doubt today and examine the term ‘Overlapping‘ to see if it truly applies to her behavior:

overlapping
     adj 1: related by having something in common with or coinciding
            with; "having overlapping duties"; "found unexpected
            overlapping areas of interest"
     2: laid overlapping (not flush) [syn: lap-jointed, lap-strake,
         lap-straked, lap-streak, lap-streaked]
     n : covering with a design in which one element covers a part of
         another (as with tiles or shingles) [syn: imbrication,
         lapping]

Okay while I’m sure it involved a lap or two, lets take a look at the term ‘cheating’:

cheating
     adj 1: not faithful to a spouse or lover; "adulterous husbands and
            wives"; "a two-timing boyfriend" [syn: adulterous, cheating,
             two-timing]
     2: violating accepted standards or rules; "a dirty fighter";
        "used foul means to gain power"; "a nasty unsporting
        serve"; "fined for unsportsmanlike behavior" [syn: cheating,
         dirty, foul, unsporting, unsportsmanlike]
     n : a deception for profit to yourself [syn: cheat]

Hmm. Maybe two-timing was the word Eva was looking for. I’m sure that’s it. The press can make people nervous. I’m sure she just meant "I end up two-timing people
because I know I’m over the relationship, so I move on without telling
them. It’s not good. I’ve never broken up with someone successfully." .

There. That sounds just about right.
