Can I get back online for a chat?

Expert:  AskJason replied 5 years ago.
Hi. Unfortunately we can't switch back to Chat once we switch to Q&A only because the system won't allow it. However, we can definitely converse this way via emails and try to get your question answered. So from what I understand so far, you and your ex broke up and then tried recently to talk about it. What was the cause of the interruption? Do you think you can create another opportunity to pick up where you left off?

My little brother interrupted us it was night time because my Dad said we had to come in and then Dad said were not too have a relationship because of his business(ex works there)as he said it affected his business how on earth when i didnt talk to the workers about it.Well I guess theirs talking over phone or text.My ex told me that day he didnt want a relationship at the moment which i didnt text back.Then that night he asked how i was going I asked him and he said getting there I said me too,then i asked if hes scared that things wont change he said yes to that I said people make improvements.Then thats where the conversation got ended.

If you live at your Dad's house then usually that means you must follow his rules. This is further complicated by the fact that your ex works at your Dad's business. Dad could definitely decide he wants to let your ex go should he feel that your relationship with his employee is causing his business to suffer, for whatever reason. All that aside, it sounds like you and your ex still have feelings for one another. Maybe this isn't the best time for you both to be in a relationship with each other, but things may change down the line and the opportunity to be with each other could occur in an easier setting. Perhaps you could try to have another conversation with your ex and discuss your relationship plans from a long term perspective rather than focusing on just the immediate? I hope this helps!

Yeah I now live with my family.I dont know how its affecting his business though.What could be discussed with the long term perspective side of things?
Expert:  AskJason replied 5 years ago.
Your father may just be telling you it affects his business when in fact it is only affecting him. Since he is the boss, your ex working there does affect his business since it affects him as the boss. Your father may be in an uncomfortable position having to be the boss of his daughter's boyfriend. Other employees may feel your ex gets special treatment because he is dating the boss' daughter. What I meant by long term perspective is to discuss with your ex the possibility of you guys seeing other people for now and then trying to make your relationship work a bot later on in life when you no longer live at your parent's house and/or when he no longer works at your father's business.

Oh yeah.Dad doesnt treat him with special treatment and he lives on my dads property but the family dont live there.

Expert:  AskJason replied 5 years ago.
My opinion is that you should say what it is you need to say. Honesty is always the best way to approach situations and if you say what you need to say, you will likely not suffer from regret from not having done so later.
