Mason:  So, I mean listen, I’m sorry about last week.

Amanda:  Hi.

Mason:  Yeah?

Amanda:  It’s good to see you.

Mason:  Yeah, it is.

Amanda:  I know. I feel really badly about what happened too. But it’s so not us and that’s not how it should be.

Mason:  I don’t know. I think there was just so much going on and it just kind of set me off.

Amanda:  I just…There’s no reason to rush this. I got ahead of myself and I…You know, we’re not getting married, so why don’t we just chill out and take it easy, see how it goes.

Mason:  Totally cool, right?

Amanda:  I don’t want to be that girl. I don’t want you to talk about me to your friends as if I’m this very overbearing, jealous, protective girlfriend.

Mason:  And I don’t want to be the boyfriend who’s yelling all the time and getting freaked out about girly stuff in his apartment. I mean, we’re better than that, right?

Amanda:  Yeah. If you want to talk to friend girls on the phone, I’m OK with that.

Mason:  Cool.

Amanda:  Yeah. I’m just gonna have to double up on my friend guys. Deal?

Mason:  Deal.

Discussion

The best way to settle an argument is with both sides admitting they did something wrong, and that’s exactly what Mason and Amanda do here. The fight they had was both of their faults and now that they’ve recognized that, they can move on.

But at the very end of the conversation, Amanda says something a little strange. She she says she’s going to have to get more guy friends if Mason is going to talk to friend girls on the phone. It sounds like she’s still not totally over her jealousy problem. What do you think? Do you think Mason and Amanda will last?

I suppose that if her jealousy is a nature of her, she just can curb it but can never be over with it. Sometimes this is necessary for a relationship to last.But you know, too much of it will bring about side effects and ruin everything. I have a feeling that with all the characteristics that she mentioned, like overbearing or protective or stuff, she's gonna destroy this relationship sooner or later.

Try to do with your partner somethings that you dont like about him, it might not be the better way to solve problems. i dont know their whole story, but Amanda seems kind of jealous yet, i mean what she said she would do, i dont know. i know there is a limit between good and bad jealousy.

not only the lovers, but also the ordinary friends will misundstanding each other. if one is jealous or very angry when something happened, it is maybe not totaly bad. as least, it can prove how deeply she loves him. but, don't angry all the time, u will scare ur friend,5 min. then forget it and believe him. this is the best way to solve the problem. no one can do anything broke up the true love.

In this line, i think 'on' should not be used. Using 'on' means having dual use.

Some body clarify please.

Helloo everybody,

I agree with Zeus. In a couple both of them have to work out when problems appear…It is very important to to love and take care each other. It is very important respect and trust each other. Nowdays there are less couples where there is true love…What a pity!
