Human beings say all kinds of things, but what they say is not very important, compared to what they do. For example…
MY boyfriend’s female friend texts me abusively but he just seems to accept it.
They’ve known each other since school and both work at a supermarket. They are both 27 and I’m 25.
They used to go bowling with a group from work one evening a week. The bowling alley is shut because of coronavirus but she wanted my boyfriend to see her after work anyway, even if they just went for a walk.
