i used to be at a function many summers in the past when a pal’s dad requested me a quantity of questions on my boyfriend. 5 minutes into the dialog i seen that he was asking about my school associate that I hadn’t been with for years. He thought we had been nonetheless collectively; i used to be answering questions based mostly on my current relationship (two utterly different conversations had been taking place on the identical time). It was awkward. I needed to cease and say, “i am sorry, are you talking about ____? we’re not collectively anymore.” He seemed shocked and genuinely dissatisfied. and that i needed to spend my night justifying my break as a lot as a stranger.
