“If the feelings are mutual, the effort will be equal.”
This is the mantra for success of any relationship; especially when it is of a boyfriend and a girlfriend. They both need to have mutual feelings for each other else it becomes a ‘half relationship’. But what happens when the love story is one sided.
What if the other person is just playing with your feelings because he knows that he is complete world for someone?
I haven’t personally gone through this but have closely seen one of my friends going through such relationship. As this is story of my friend, respecting their privacy I will not use their real names. Rather, I will use imaginary names:
Priya was deeply in love with a Anmol but for him it was just “Dost se Zyaada, Girlfriend/Boyfriend se kam”.
It was during college days, when the craze and charm for love is at peak. Boys and girls meet, they spend time together and fall into love. Priya haa a crush on Anmol and with involvement of some friends started talking to him. Priya was from those extra ordinary students who always top in the class. So Anmol took advantage of it and started chatting with her just to get her help in exams and assignments.
The long chats took their relationship from friendship to love and the goody-goody things started happening. Dates, movies, long drives and gifts, everything was great for a few months.
But everything hasn’t been made for a happy ending. Everything was great for a few weeks, but suddenly things changed. And the culprit was social media. A few messages here and there and problems started arising, which couldn’t be solved ever.
Later, Priya also realized that Anmol was just passing time and was playing with her feelings for his personal benefit. From his habits to family background and relationship, he lied about each and everything. Initially she tried hard to save her drowning relationship, but ultimately she gave up and planned to move on in her life.
Though a broken love is painful and upsetting, but if it is with a wrong person, it is better to separate ways. This is what Priya did and I would say it was for good as now she has found her true love who completes her.
The upcoming movie “Half Girlfriend” wonderfully captures this reality of life. Though this is just a movie, there are many people in real life who have got stuck in such relationships where they just become “Dost se Zyaada, Girlfriend/Boyfriend se kam”. They get stuck in one sided relationships and end-up hurting themselves.
