Recently I had that conversation you never ever want to have with someone you really, really care about. You know, the one where you talk about how you go on with your lives separately now that you're broken up. In the dim light of a small coffee shop over a lukewarm macchiato, I looked into his eyes. My chest hurt. I knew what I had to say, but I didn't want to say it ... at all.
"I'm going to have to defriend you on Facebook. At least for now. I can't know."
It's sad, isn't it? That these are the things you have to discuss with someone when you're going your separate ways? But it was true. I didn't want to click the "unfriend" button because I wanted nothing to do with him. I needed to click it because I still care, and I just can't handle it.
