A: How's it going?
B: I'm in a really good mood, actually. How about you?
A: To be honest, I'm a bit fed up.
B: What's wrong?
A: Well, my boyfriend was supposed to call me last night, but he never did.
B: That's too bad. I'm sure there's a logical explanation for it. Don't be too upset about it.
A: The thing is, this isn't the first time he's promised to do something and then didn't.
B: I see how that can get a bit annoying.
A: A bit? I'm extremely annoyed that he didn't phone me when he promised me that he would! He's such a liar.
B: So what are you going to do about it?
A: I don't know. I've got mixed feelings about it. On the one hand, I really want to end it with him, but on the other hand, I don't want to be without him.
B: What do you think would make you happier?
A: In the long run, I think breaking up with him would make me much happier, but I know that I'll be depressed about it for a few weeks first.
B: Relationships can be confusing sometimes.
A: What would you do if you were me?
B: I'd call him and dump him now! You deserve better than him!
