break up idioms
Let’s kick things off with idioms about breaking up. I bet everyone reading this has had a break up at some point in their lives.
Now, break up is a phrasal verb that is commonly used to describe a couple ending their relationship and separating. Synonyms include:
- Finish – Paul and I have finished.
- Separate – We’ve decided to separate, we can’t stay together just for the kids.
- Split up – I can’t believe Anna and Peter have split up, they were such a lovely couple.
- Part ways – Marco and Lucas have parted ways, it just wasn’t working.
Next up is dating. If you don’t know what it is, i’ll fill you in.
Dating is when you spend time with another person to figure out if you like eachother and are compatible. This can include eating at restaurants, going to a bar, cinema etc. If everything goes well, the couple can then decide if they want to make it official and start a relationship.
Friends! Everyone has them and they make life so much more fun, don’t they? I’m sure you all know what a friend is, but just incase…
Friends are other people who we get along with very well. You enjoy spending time socialising with them and having fun and enjoying life.
After you’ve dated and started a relationship next comes love. Let’s learn some idioms about being in love.
