Yours, Mine and Ours

You meet someone. You date for a while. You meet their friends. They meet yours. Everything is going great… until it isn’t and you break up. Some end amicably, others less so. But when all is said and done, and you returned their stupid windbreaker that you never liked anyway, you want to hang out with your friends. But which friends are still your friends, and which ones aren’t anymore? And are you going to have to share your friends with them?Here’s a quick and easy list – delineating allies.Instant Messengerstrongnbutifl: whats happenin1ofdaguys: brb1ofdaguys is idlestrongnbutifl: if you’re busy we can talk laterAutoresponse from 1ofdaguys: drinkin with the crewThrow a party on the same night as your ex’s birthday.

If they do it, see how long it takes, and what their attitude towards you is afterwards.Call a friend up and say you want to talk . Blame all the relationship’s problems on yourself. See if they agree.

    Believe it or not, I haven’t actually had a chance to read these last entries until just now. Anyway…

    You realize this post about which mutual friends are still your friend after you get screwed over is entirely relevant to me, right? Sad that I still cannot tell where some people stand, but I don’t really care either. I mean, is any ex-friend who blames you for your sensitivity – for taking time to care and then not being able to just “get over it” – worth crying over? Anyone like that belongs in the same category of the one who screwed you over to begin with.
