Yesterday I had BBQ with my colleagues. It was sunny and good day for BBQ.
There were 3 new recruits with us and we talked about how to meet a girl and a boy in private. One of female in new recruits, A, she had a Taiwanese boyfriend but recently they broke up but they still go shopping and have a coffee together. Our boss asked her”how she draw a line between a boyfriend and a friend. “. Other 2 new recruits, female B and male C, they also had the same experience. Their opinion was very unique.
They can’t cut off their loved ones suddenly and it’s possible to continue the relationship as a friend because the loved ones understand themselves very much. So the answer to our boss’s question was “They draw a line even though they meet your previous flames. “
Of course it depends on people and this might not be a generation gap. They also explained about how their college life was like.
In the same circle, there were few ex boyfriends and ex girlfriends. So a girl was someone’s girlfriend but few weeks later, she became other’s girlfriend and it happened in the circle.
One of A’s previous flames became her best friend’s boyfriend now ! She still get together with them. Is it still awkward?
I didn’t continue relationship with my ex boyfriends as a friend. Once we broke up, it was all over and I didn’t contact them anymore. That’s how I draw a line.
Anyway they are all ok about it and I got new idea from them 🙂 It’s a learning curve for me✨
