One must love French movies.
In French movies exes are cordial and meet up at family events. They can even exchange supportive smiles when their man ex/man is acting like a total fool in their presence.
Some Hollywood movies have taken this subject to the big screen but those movies are without a doubt, based on French films.
The French are sophisticated, socially and politically speaking and therefore, they manage past love stories better than most of us mortals, maybe because they understand that love is ephimeral and stories don´t last forever. Having that clear saves us a lot of hostlity. Maybe because they understand that men, those matians, are something that all women endure at some point.
Why is it that we systematically hate our partner’s ex? Personally I don’t see the point in doing so. Call me a researcher but I always try to analyze closely the person that left the job or the person that was “fired” because let’s face it, who better than an ex employee/boss to give you hints about what is coming your way? Don´t people ask for referrals?
Right. But most women, moved but nothing but ego, mistakenly think the following:
“He did that because she was such a bitch. He won’t do it to me”
Ha, Ha, Ha!
Wait, I just choked on my porridge.
