It's not you, it's me:
Means the reason for the break up is the person who is breaking up and not the other person; this way you are letting down the other person easy and not blaming the other person for the break up.

It's over:

We are not compatible:
This means that two people have very different personalities... And that they do not work well together in a relationship.

Don't want to be exclusive:
Meaning the person who is breaking up does not want to be in a relationship with just one person; the person wants to explore more people, date others and not commit to one person. This is a valid reason to break up.

We are not in the same place:
Means we want different things from life; like one person may want to settle down the other person may want to focus on career .

Giving an ultimatum:
Meaning one person giving the other person a deadline to commit to the relationship; if the deadline is not met then that becomes the cause for the break up.

I don't feel the same way about you:
Meaning the intensity of emotions that two people feel as not at the same level; and that's why the levels of commitment towards the relationship are at different levels; and that becomes the reason for the breakup.
