This story is about a couple going through a rough patch in they’re relationship while waiting for the train together. While the woman is quite uninterested in the man she just says in the relationship out of habit but when talking of the elephants you can see the pain she has being stuck with the man.
Does she stay in her relationship with the man?
The story starts off with them having drinks while waiting for the train. The man has honestly feeling for the woman but the woman doesn’t know her feelings to him and their relationship. To me it seems that it is a one sided relationship between the two. When the woman mentions the hill looking like white elephants it was a symbol of openness and freedom because that’s where she wants to be but it is impossible for the man holding her back because he loves her too much and she is a creature of habit. Once the man started to leave and come back she started to smile, I believe he was just trying to get her space because she is indecisive about her feelings toward herself and him. Inevitably I believe she is going to leave him.
When have you made a important choice to stay in a relationship or leave a relationship -- OR -- stay or leave a difficult situation?
When I was 17 I dated a boy slightly younger than me out of pity because he kept trying hard to get attention from me. On the third day he told me that he loved me but I didn’t realize he was just the one night stand that just hanged around. I left that relationship because it was draining and I had no feeling for him so I let it be one sided until I couldn’t do it anymore. I left and started caring for myself and I never looked back.
I am pretty much your average, awkward friend that can relate to pretty much anything you can talk about.
