—The Person Who Lives
The celebrity breakup is like a baby, born from the celebrity romance. The celebrities maintain joint custody of the baby, and they shuttle it back and forth to each other, with nasty little notes pinned to its bib.

For us it’s the waiting to be with that person, the hoping they will return our affection, the wondering if they are ever going to fucking notice how many of their tweets we are faving, that lasts forever. The breakup is the part we just want to be on the other side of as quickly as possible.
