Falling in love can be one of the best feelings in the world. However, when people are in a relationship, that love may not last for many different reasons. Breaking up can be terrible, especially when you are the person who still wants to continue the relationship.
Being dumped is an awful feeling. Someone will always have their feelings hurt in a break up. It can feel even more awkward if you see the person who dumped you after it has happened. But most people can move on after being heartbroken and find another relationship.
Sara tells Brian about running into her ex and how it made her feel. Find out more in today’s English lesson about breaking up.
1. Listen and Read

– Read the dialog again to see how the vocab words are used.
Brian: Good. How’re you doing?
Brian: That is the worst. I’ve had that happen before too. It’s so awkward.
Sara_R: Especially because he dumped me. It was really painful.
Brian: At least you’ve had some time to move on. I’m sure it’s still painful to see him. But, you can only stay down in the dumps for so long.
Sara_R: Yeah, I was really heartbroken. And when I saw him I kind of felt heartbroken all over again. I thought I had healed. But maybe I still need more time to heal.
Brian: I feel like time is always the factor. Even me, I’ve ran into some ex-girlfriends. When I see them, I get a rush and I remember all of the great times we had. It’s hard not to let your heart get the better of you.
Sara_R: That’s true. It is good to remember all the good times and love and great feelings.
Sara_R: It is. Thanks for talking. This has really helped.
No, I haven’t, but I’d like to share my inexperience xD
