One of the hardest parts about a having an argument with someone is the next time you see the person you fought with. You never know how he or she is going to act.

There are a lot of things you can do after a fight. You can forget it ever happened and continue as normal. You can pretend to forget while secretly harboring resentment. Or you can hold a grudge and stay angry.

After their first fight, Amanda and Mason are not on the same page.

3. Watch - Watch the video without reading the dialog.

Amanda:  Hey, monkey, how are you? I’ve got all this great stuff! Check out this cutting board. We can cut vegetables on it and strawberries and dip them in chocolate, you know how you like it?

Mason:  Uh…um…is that what you were doing all day?

Amanda:  Satin sheets?

Mason:  Sheets?

Amanda:  Yeah.

Mason:  Is that, like, how you cope?

Amanda:  Plastic mattress pad too.

Mason:  I don’t understand. Wait.

Amanda:  What’s wrong?

Mason:  Are these, like, make up presents? I don’t get it.

Amanda:  For what? Did we have a fight?

Mason:  Uh, yeah! Remember? At the pizza parlor with you freaking out on me because Devan called me and I took her call.

Amanda:  I don’t think I was freaking out. I was mad because you took a call from another girl when we’re supposed to be exclusive.

Mason:  Yeah, from my friend, Devan.

Amanda:  Who’s in love with you and wants to be all up in here.

Mason:  That was like, a crush. There’s nothing going on with that and you flipped out. You went totally bonkers.

Amanda:  Are we just a crush?

Mason:  Are you seriously going there? Is that what’s happening right now?

Amanda:  I don’t know. I…

Mason:  I think you didn’t do enough time thinking about the situation. You just thought about your thread counts and…

Amanda:  I’m feeling like I kind of want to cut things with somebody else whose name rhymes with yours.

Mason:  Well, I’m hoping you got the receipts because that stuff’s totally overkill. We can’t afford it.

Amanda:  Really? OK. See ya. Text me later. Or not.

Amanda arrives at Mason’s apartment and happily starts telling him about some stuff she bought for their new place. But Mason isn’t in a very good mood. He’s still upset about the fight.

But Amanda seems to have totally forgotten it. He has to remind her it happened. She still insists that he shouldn’t answer Devan’s calls and Mason still thinks it’s OK to talk to her. She is his friend, after all.

Amanda gets upset and says that she’s going to go try out her new cutting board with someone whose name rhymes with Mason…Someone who has a big crush on her.

Do you think Mason is justified or overreacting? Do you think Amanda really forgot about the fight or was she just pretending? Do you think she’ll really call Jason?

That is a big problem that Amanda and Mason are not on the same page. Especially when Amanda say that Jason what what. I just think that Amanda is going too far to refer to Jason every time. To be honest, I myself don not think they can make a good couple.

  Frankly speaking,i don't agree with kasiek61,i think Mason's action like a children,if you crush on somebody,you should learn how to deal with things,instead avoiding meeting with each other.every pair has kinds of problem,and if you deal with it proper,you will have deeper relation,but instead your relation will be destroied and have terminated.

 a real man should have a good temper and learn how to be indulgent of others'error.and give others a step. i don't think Amanda have forgotten it,after all the thing her boyfrind call other girl who like him all the time irate her,but she give up her dignity,simple only want to have a good communication with somebody else whose name ryhmes with his and repair their relation,i think Mason is overreacting.and i don't like his charcater.

Yeah sometimes, discussion may help to improve our relationship, but we must know where we’ll stop…

Fight couldn't be the reason for the end of any relation. It's just help you to resolve your problem. I think that Mason must take make up present and forget the fight.

Things are getting more exciting! Affection sometimes leads to hatred. After overcoming this situation, they will be a better couple, I guess.Wink
