Can we still be friends?
Don’t bother to ask this question at the end of a relationship. Because the answer will be a firm yes, and the answer as reflected in the reality is always a ‘sorry, it’s impossible.’
Men are not genius or ultimate rational beings who can clearly sieve away their hatred, anguish… together with the closure of the relationship chapter. Who can still resume a normal friendship after being hurt? Being rejected?
We are mortal. Getting an ‘F’ in relationship = Losing a friend whom you once cherish dearly. Any further question or reaffirmation of friendship is nothing but a meaningless gesture of formality.
