all i have to say is that the most awesome thing about dating someone halfway across the planet is that the only way that you know he's breaking up with you is when you see that he has changed his profile pic on facebook from the one of the two of you and subsequently removed you as a friend.
times are not good.
i leave for greece in about 24 hours. the good news in all of this is that i don't ever have to worry about him marrying my neighbor, running into him at parties, and all i really have to do to remove him from my life is take down the photos. the next time i think about falling in love, please talk me out of it.
