      I think if Lovers broke up with each other, they would have faced the situation that you said. :)

    Cambridge Dictionary says

    A lose-lose situation or result is one that is bad for everyone who is involved:
    He said that going ahead with the strike would be a lose-lose situation for all concerned.

    Dear Roman, the situation when all sides are losing is usually described as a lose-lose situation. Something like a divorce in a family (all the members are suffering – husband, wife, children and parents) or budget cutting in a company because of sales crisis (owners and workers receive less money).

Saturday, October 13th 2018

Dear Rebecca! Thanks for your lesson!
I know it’s besides the point of this lesson but I ask you to explain it. In the first paragraph of your lesson you used an expression “kind of has”. I encounter it fhor the second time and cannot find explanation and meaning of it. Thanks in advance.

Sunday, October 14th 2018

Good video – as usual. Thank you!
It’s interesting to learn some opposite expressions to those you already know and which are very often used.

Monday, October 15th 2018

A great lesson!

I think in an any battle only one side will win. so there is no place where both sides lost

Thursday, October 18th 2018

    Hmmm…There is another English expression, a “Pyrrhic victory”, about a fight that neither side really wins. It comes from a story about a Greek king, Pyrrhus, who won a battle, but all his best soldiers were killed and there was no one to replace them. So you could say that a Pyrrhic victory is one situation where there are no winners.
