Agreed, but I would argue that a shallow person would turn on their heel and dump the chump who wanted to bail on the relationship. Never mind that they wanted to bail as well - true shallowness does not admit such self-awareness.

Conversely, it takes a certain degree of maturity and acceptance to swallow one's pride and admit that the problem all along was communication and failing to be genuine with each other.
