The consequences of a breakup are always devastating, and so seems to be the case between Megan McKenna and Pete Wicks who broke their relationship leaving fans shocked.
Another couple who split up was Amber Turner and her boyfriend Jamie Reed, now the producers and other members of TOWIE are fearful of the consequences that could bring to the show.
During this week Pete was with Chloe Sims, Georgia Kousoulou and James Lock at the TRIC Awards. Pete shared a photo with his followers of Instagram with James where he wrote: “This is why he’s my pal … @jameslock_.”
And on the other hand, Megan went alone to the awards and seemed a little removed from the group; she was with other celebrities like Ferne McCann. In a similar position is Amber because due to the breakup is no longer so close to his teammates including Chloe Meadows who decided to take the side of Jamie.
Jamie has highly valued the support that Chloe has given him and wrote on Twitter: “Some people create their storm and then get upset when it rains !! Thanks, @Chloemeadows for being a friend.
From what is seen, it has been difficult for these couples to handle their breakups while they have friends in common. Celebrity Dating expert James Preece says, “When you breakup, it’s a very difficult time for your friends too. Most of them will be disappointed with your breakup and will not know what the right thing is. ”
What should do?
Having friends in common does not have to be a problem: a relationship is two people, and the relationship that each one has with friends is different. We just have to be clear if we want to keep that friendship. If so, we have to learn to separate both.
The mutual friend just needs to be totally neutral. Friends should support and help overcome the rupture, but they should not position themselves for any since each relationship is different, as is each rupture. They should normalize the situation by acting with equality and as friends with the two parties
We must keep in touch with them if it is what we want since we have to open ourselves emotionally and support us. It is important to avoid monopolizing the subject because they will end up getting tired and will not disconnect. Nor do we try to put them against the other person since, after all, they are also their friends, nor ask them to take sides because a couple is two and not friends. Finally, we have to avoid lying and making excuses; it is best to be sincere if we feel bad because they will understand and encourage us.
