Hello everybody,

I'm looking for the word ''that one would rather forget or abandon" is there some similar expression with the verb hang?Thanks

You should arm yourself with tactics and boring charm that one would rather give up on it./hang it up.

Sorry for being pain in the neck.

Does this sentence have any sense to you?
The expression "hung out to dry" can mean that the idea has been abadoned. But it's not a very common expression.

The sentence you gave as an example didn't make much sense to me though.

Hi Grammar Geek,

Here's the context so it might have sense if you feel like reading it:

Men say that adultery is a good business. For real adultery one should sharpen his senses and concentrate harder. You should gather your associates, who will be acquainted with your initiative and support you in every moment. You should have a good night's sleep, because you will certainly lack one. You should arm yourself with tactics and boring charm that one would rather give up on/abandon/forget about it. At certain age, adultery becomes tiring, but exactly at that point it is a challenge. What do you need adultery for in your twenties, when all you do is lead an erotic life, anyway. Adultery in your forties, fifties, sixties, becomes a contemplative exercise, something like the art of drawing a bow.

Thank you for your time and patience

You should arm yourself with tactics and a boring charm that you'd be better off not thinking about. At a certain age, adultery becomes tiring; that's exactly the point where it's a challenge.

(I don't quite get the concept of contemplative exercise in the last sentence.)
I'm also not sure I'm getting the concept of "boring charm."

But if you mean the person would rather not make the effort to be charming, you could say "you'd rather abandon."

Thank you Davkett for your suggestions.

Thank to you too, Grammar Geek. I think ''you'd rather abandon'' coveres the meaning.

hang it up : to cease an activity or effort
Hi! Thank you for your posts.

What about charm which one would rather hang up? It doesn't sound OK to me.
