Two Friends talking about relationships
Meghna: Hi there! So what’s up?
Kajal: O hi Meghna! You know, it’s Friday night, I just came here to meet someone.
Meghna: That’s interesting. Is he the same guy from work who asked you out? It seemed like you guys just hit it off.
Kajal: Yeah, few weeks back we were having a conversation and we exchanged phone numbers. One thing lead to another and he eventually asked me out. We are getting to know each other. He seems like a decent guy with goofy sense of humour. Let’s see how it goes.
Meghna: Nice. I know it’s too early to say but I bet there was a spark between you guys.
Kajal: I am not sure about it. We have good chemistry but I don’t want to lead him on.
Meghna: Exactly same thing happened with me. My last relationship didn’t have good start. I started to fall for him after we went out few times. We were together for 2 years.
Kajal: So, what happened? I mean if you don’t mind me asking why you guys split up?
Meghna: That’s absolutely fine. After more than a year, we started to drift apart. Mainly because little common was there, we had different interests, different career plans etc. it didn’t really work out well. Eventually we had a falling out and I broke up with him few months back.
Kajal: I am sorry to hear that.
Meghna: Please don’t be. I am over him now. I can’t be in a toxic relationship for that long.
Kajal: Yeah, you’re right. My last relationship was crappy one too. I hooked up with a guy at Sandeep’s birthday party and it lingered on for like six months before I eventually dumped him. We were constantly fighting over trivial issues and making up.
Meghna: How did it end?
Kajal: He was cheating on me. He tried to convince me that nothing was going on but I somehow knew he was lying through his teeth.
Meghna: Right decision. Good for you.
Kajal: Well, thanks. Nothing puts me off more than unfaithfulness in a relationship.
Meghna: Yeah. It bums me out too.
Kajal: Yeah. I am actually thinking of settling down. I want stability and security in life.
Meghna: That’s wonderful. But are you sure about it?
Kajal: Yeah, I am seriously considering it.
Meghna: Well, you will soon find someone.
Kajal: I am backing myself up on that.
Meghna: It’s getting late. I will talk to you more about it sometime. I gotta leave now.
Kajal: That’s fine. See you around.
Meghna: Take care!
