Is This How Adults End Relationships?

I have a knack for dressing for the occasion, whatever the occasion may be. But I couldn’t find “breakup dress” in my closet.

What does one wear to meet the person you’ve been dating when you know it’s the last date you’re going to have? And I use the word “date” here loosely—I knew I was going to pay for my own drinks and go home by myself this time.

Is this how adults end relationships? With a well-intentioned but ultimately ill-fated phone call that brings out the insecurities in one and the indecision of the other that puts the direction of the relationship on two completely different tracks that lead them to a dark bar four days later so they can talk face-to-face like the civilized but essentially misunderstood significant others that they are? Do adults plan their breakups?

Find out how my relationship ended over on Coffee Meets Bagel.
