Alrighty kids, my newest weekly post – E’s Elucidations – is now ready for your reading pleasure. I want to thank each and every one of you who submitted questions for this riveting interview…enjoy!
WHY DO PEOPLE BREAK UP WITH EACH OTHER?
E: Probably because they are angry with each other and they are frustrated…and they call each other names.
HOW DO YOU BREAK UP WITH SOMEONE?
E: First you say “I don’t feel like being with you anymore”, and then you might call each other names and then you just leave each other.
WHAT DO YOU SAY WHEN YOU BREAK UP WITH SOMEONE?
E: I’d probably say “I don’t want to be with you anymore because I’m getting annoyed with you and I really don’t want to be around you anymore.”
WHERE DO YOU BREAK UP WITH THEM?
E: It could be anywhere – in your house, at a restaurant, outside, at an amusement park…anywhere (not in outer space, though).
CAN YOU BREAK UP WITH A GUY IF HE’S A BAD KISSER?
E: Um, yeah because if he’s a bad kisser you might not want to kiss him anymore.
HOW DO YOU HANDLE YOUR EX’S FRIENDS AND FAMILY AFTER A BREAKUP?
E: I would say, “I broke up with my boyfriend because he just wasn’t my type, and he wasn’t very friendly”. I wouldn’t stay around their part of the family…I might hang out with the friends still – if they were nice.
WHAT DO YOU DO IF THE PERSON YOU WANT TO BREAK UP WITH TEXT MESSAGES YOU ALL THIS CRAZY STUFF LIKE, “WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOU LATELY? DO YOU WANT TO BREAK UP? WHY ARE YOU SO DISTANT? CAN YOU JUST BREAK UP WITH HIM VIA TEXT MESSAGE?
E: I would have to talk to him personally to let him know my personal feelings and so he could see the expressions on my face.
WHAT DO YOU DO IF THE OTHER PERSON STARTS CRYING?
E: I’d say “Sorry, but you are just not my type, and I’m really sorry because I just don’t feel like being around you anymore.”
WHAT’S THE HARDEST PART ABOUT BREAKING UP?
E: I’d say it would be hard because if they were a good cook you’d miss their food, or if they owned something together they’d have to decide who gets what.
SHOULD MARRIED PEOPLE BREAK UP, AND WHY?
E: Yeah, because that’s the most popular type of breaking up. If you were just girlfriend and boyfriend that’s not really being together a lot. If you’re married you’d live together and it would be hard to live with someone you didn’t like.
WHY DOES IT TAKE SOME PEOPLE SO LONG TO BREAK UP?
E: Probably because you like each other and you like being around each other and you feel so close but then they start doing things without you and you feel left out.
Maybe we can all learn something from a 9 yr. old’s insight! Please feel free to send me suggestions for next week’s topic. Toodles….
