[3-18-11] I know that's unfair

Wow, you can really just read the emotions playing out over their faces.

Do you guys think they'll stay together after this? I think Daphne might be able to convince Sara.

I'm not sure Daphne's statement is going to be very helpful - I know what she's getting at, but I think in Sara's shoes it could seem like Daphne's minimizing what Sara went through in Hollywood (and the friendship she made there).

I think this thread was made first, given its placement on the board. Just by a few seconds, though, apparently.

And yeah, it looks like this is backfiring on Sara.

Whoops, posting to the actual thread.

The tears look a little strange to me.

Daphne is the epitome of my last boyfriend, who I tried unsuccessfully to break up with five times before it stuck. He would beg and I would have too much love for him to see him distraught. It's very difficult, and I have no guesses as to how Sara takes this.

Damn, beat me by a minute!

Anyways... Dammit, Sarah. If you don't tell her the truth about Lucy I will break through the fourth wall, pick you up by your ankles, and shake you until your hair falls out.

Ohhh, this is why I love T's writing so much. They're both right and both wrong. Maybe if they were 20-something and different people, this would be fixable. But they're not.

Hopefully you didn't give your bf confusing BS reasons like Sara is here.

Dang, a triple-header! is this a first?

Andf now definitely isn't the time to say, "Oh, and by the way, I made out with this girl in LA, cos you mean that little to me." If Sara is intent on breaking up,, there's no point in dragging Lucy up.

I really REALLY don't see why Sara can't just "woman up" (to paraphrase Rich just a tad) and admit she's fallen for Lucy. C'mon girl, if you've gone this far with the decision to break it off, you owe it to Daph to be honest about it.

OTOH, I think Daph's being a bit... something not-helpful... with that "Hollywood wasn't your real life" business. No? Then whose "real life" was it, dear? :roll:

I don't think this is necessarily a BS reason, though - it can be pretty rough if your friend and your significant other don't get along. (I have not been in this position myself, but I have been the friend who didn't like the significant other. It is a heckuva long story, though.) I think Sara has gotten a little sidetracked here, but she's not necessarily going to completely omit any further mention of Lucy.

There's also this: there is a line between "honesty" and "unnecessarily hurtful." That said, though, Sara would be wrong to try to pin this entirely on Daphne, although she seems to be starting to get at the idea that it's not just Daphne that's out of whack.

I'm thinking she'll have to on Monday. Seems at this point the most likely other option is having the relationship limp along with Daphne thinking either that everything's alright, or can be fixed. (Been there, done that. As Daph.)

If an SO asked me to drop a close friend, I'd drop the SO. But Daphne hasn't asked, and has been trying, as Sara acknowledges... but is going to dump her anyway. That's not going to make sense to Daphne.

At last, Sara mentions Lucy.

It's not fair for Sara to break up with Daphne for reasons that she's never told Daphne before. Sara's never given Saraphne a chance to work on that. She's been saving a "Get Out of Relationship Free" card.

On the other hand, it will turn bad if Daphne plays the "you haven't followed procedure, you're still my girlfriend" card.

BTW all of us missed the obvious advantage of breaking up in a mall:

@Adrishiana, it's a completely legit reason. One of my old ex's was (is) hated by pretty much everyone (90%+ of people we mutually know) who I consider friends. It was very straining, because I was always having to choose between spending time with my partner who I've known about half my life and have recently begun dating or spending time with all my other dear friends.
This is kinda a different scenario, though, in that Daphne is trying her damndest to be friends with (well, cordial to) Penny in order to stay with Sara.

@Alice Macher, I disagree with your 'womanning up' about the Lucy thing. I think Sara's doing the right thing for this scenario by not telling Daphne about Lucy. She's not trying to hurt her, she just wants to see if they can work through their problems - namely how Sara is having a damn hard time trusting someone she once saw do something bad, as opposed to Lucy who was merely annoying at worst, never bad (Has Lucy become less of a person and more of an ideal to Sara? I think so)
OTOH? I'm unfamiliar with that term, but I do see where Daphne's coming from with this. While I also balked at first while reading it, it's really easy to understand why, in order for this relationship to work, Daphne must make Hollywood become unreal - so the Sara she had before would be the original reality. I phrased that terribly, so I'm going to try again here: The "Hollywood wasn't your real life" statement has to be true - at least for Daphne. If it's not true, then... well, it simply has to be. Just is.

But we don't know whether Sara really has 'fallen' for Lucy- she may think she has, but a few weeks in the insane No Exit pressure cooker, and some online chatting is a pretty poor basis for a relationship. Attempting to make it work with Lucy in real life could well end up with sara regretting dumping Daphne...
