You have just walked into your favourite hangout zone and immediately bumped into your ex-flame. What do you do in such a scenario? Most people used to get embarrassed on running into their ex in a public place, but not anymore. Forget about being embarrassed, today’s generation next does not even mind being friends with their ex-flame!

Today when it comes to relationships, everyone is viciously blatant. Gone are the days when a guy or a girl won’t call, meet or even take a glance at their ex-lovers post their break-up. Today’s youth does not mind in keeping in touch with their former partners or even being friends with them. They will not avoid a party or compromise on their share of fun and enjoyment just because they might bump into their ex-lover.

The current generation is very clear about their priorities and what they want in life. Their mantra is simple: if a relationship works out well, fine; if it doesn’t, move on! They do not believe in hanging around with someone in a ‘dead’ relationship just for the sake of it. And if it happens to involve their career in one way or the other, then rest assured they will NOT compromise for sure.

The most significant example that highlights this new and unabashed way of thinking comes from the tinsel town of Mumbai, ‘Bollywood’. Superstar couples like Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif, Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone or Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra presents a perfect example. These couples once dated, were in love, then they broke-up and finally became friends again. They did not bad-mouth each other and cut a sorry figure post their break-up. Instead, they all moved on in their respective lives and are doing pretty well for themselves.

Take, for instance, Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone. They had openly declared their never-ending love for each other to the world at one point of time. But when things didn’t work out well between them, they decided to part ways and move on with their respective lives without creating any fuss. The fact that they are doing a film together again is proof enough of how couples now-a-days don’t hang on to their past.

While Deepika found comfort in the company of a certain ‘prince’ of good times, Siddharth Mallya, Ranbir had a brief fling with Priyanka Chopra before he moved on to Nargis Fakhri. And guess what, Ranbir had all the three pretty ladies, Deepika, Priyanka and Nargis, under the same roof on his 29th birthday bash! Pretty daring and courageous, one must say.

The youth of today no longer feel uncomfortable or conscious in the company of their ex-lovers. They represent a generation that lives life on its own terms and stick by their choices no matter what. They are young and successful; they are ambitious and imaginative; they are not afraid of anything; and they believe in taking the bull by its horns. In short, they just don’t care. And whether you love them or hate them but you just cannot ignore them!
