Vic Sotto and flame Pia Guanio have supposedly called it quits after several years of togetherness. Although rumors have been swirling around daytime TV's golden couple regarding their alleged break up, neither of them have come forward to either deny or acknowledge the news. In a report from PEP.ph, Pia Guanio left everyone guessing when she said "Like I said, this is something I really wanna keep between us. I really don't want to give a status report to the rest of the world every so often. I think yung relationship namin ni Vic has come to a certain maturity na hindi na kailangang i-label pa."
Pia's cryptic statement has been leaving a lot of people wondering about just what is going on between her and Vic. Have they broken up or are they still together? And just whose business is it if two people want to keep the reasons of an alleged split to themselves?
Maybe Pia is choosing to keep things private because the relationship was between her and Vic, after all. That's keeping it classy. Not a lot of people would have the self-control to keep mum about a past relationship, so let's take our cue from Pia and talk about the five things you should never discuss post-breakup.
1. YOUR EX'S FINANCIAL SITUATION
Money is a sensitive topic for everyone, and if you're the kind of person who is uncomfortable discussing anything regarding pesos, chances are this isn't something you'd divulge anyway. Discussing your ex's bank account even with your closest friends is a big no-no, because it'll make you look like you paid more attention to what he was spending on you rather than the quality of time you spent together. Gold diggers are best left to those telenovelas we just can't seem to stop watching.
2. FAMILY PROBLEMS
If you're lucky (or unlucky, as the case may be) enough to have met your ex's family, you will ultimately know the quirks that make his side of the family, er...unique. Discussing his sister's weird eating habit or his cousin's strange driving rituals are a huge mistake. Unless you want to hear stories of your unusual pre-makeup rituals making the rounds, too.
3. "PERSONAL" MOMENTS
Let's face it, telling your friends about your "escapades" is one of the most tempting things in the world. But it's something you truly have to resist doing. No matter how bad your breakup may have been, disclosing anything (and I mean anything) about what you two have done beyond holding hands isn't just an invitation for people to gossip about you, not to mention that it's super tacky.
4. SECRETS TOLD TO YOU IN CONFIDENCE
Getting involved in a relationship is one of the riskiest things anyone can do. You are letting your guard down and inviting a relative stranger into your life, and depending how things progress, secrets will be told as your relationship progresses. A break up doesn't give you permission to tell anyone about personal and intimate details about your ex's life. Telling secrets to get back at your ex, doesn't just scream "bitter!!" Honestly, it's about the cheapest thing you can do. Take a deep breath and just say no.
5. THE DETAILS OF YOUR BREAKUP
This is a hard one to follow. Breakups are difficult times for both you and your ex: you've invested in your relationship; spent a lot of time trying to work through the bad times and acknowledging it's end will never be easy. You will, of course, turn to family and friends for comfort. Don't let friends--especially if you have the same barkada--take sides. Try to make the split as clean and uncomplicated as possible. This shouldn't be a war of the exes. Take the high road and move on. It takes a strong, independent and classy woman to not badmouth an ex behind his back. Be that woman.
