Mensagem: 

   José Roberto, I feel just like you.  My English is not that good, so Dale, Pat, Fran will give us a hand.

   Verbal tenses are sometimes a PITA to me, so Nouria I can´t be accurate in this sort of subject just now.

    So, I am not going stick to the Simple Tense right now, but I have found another way to convey what you were thinking. Or I am going attempt to.

    Here we it goes:

 

      I used to go out with these two girls, but since last week I don´t feel like it (anymore).
-Whatever the reason, I simply don´t feel like it.   Wether I don´t like the girls anymore or I don´t get comfortable  with them or I am not in the mood. It is not determined here, that is, the meaning is on the ears and mind of the reader/listener.

 

 

Until last week I used to chummy with these two girls, but I don´t go out with them anymore.


These two girls and I were really good friends, until last week; but they are not the sort of girls I want to go out with (anymore).


 *obviously, the listener is going to want to know why you aren´t in good term, from then onwards the explanation
is up to you.   I mean, you aren´t going to stop the flow of the conversation, so you have room to explain why.

 

 

 

  Well, or close to it.  Let´s wait further comments.

    Sorry for not elaborating more, it´s because I have a driving test tomorrow, wish me well.  So long.                      PP.
