According to a study, when a long term relationship ends the average adult will lose eight friends. The study surveyed 2,000 people who just ended a long relationship. Of that two thirds of them had mutual friends with their ex and lost an average of eight friends. Also one in ten said that their friends were so feed up that they stopped talking to them and their ex, because they didn’t want to take sides.
Slacker had to let go of LoDo because his ex wife was always down there and just bought an apartment there. It is not like they sat down and set rules up but he didn’t want to run into her. Some of their mutual friends picked sides and shocking some of her coworkers picked to stay friends with him. They had a dog together and it was weird to him that she didn’t say goodbye to the dog or anything. If he divorced his wife now they would fight for this sushi place.
The longest relationship I have been in my adult life, so far, I am currently still in so I don’t really know if this happens. I am friends with my boyfriend’s friends but if we ended our relationship I would expect his friends to side with him. My high school relationship I was in, I was told I couldn’t date his friends. I stopped talking to him and his friends until one day I ran into one of his good friends, and we are still dating over two years later. His friend doesn’t talk to him anymore but we see him every once in a while. I can understand this happening but I was a little shocked to hear you lose around eight friends.
