Heartbreak 101: Love Fades

In the world of dating, there are rare and wonderful encounters that remind you what this whole crazy messed-up game is about. They usually happen when you least expect, say, you're in the middle of a dating experiment, ready to line 'em up & knock 'em down then BAM! You meet a charming, funny and heavenly boy while out to dinner with your family.

The details of the meeting are adorable, but they're really not important. The first date was also one for the books, but that's not relevant now either. What you'll remember most is the comfort and ease you felt immediately with him, the nights spent entangled in his limbs, and the way that, for a brief moment in time, he made you feel like you had finally found your home. 

But sometimes, no matter how carefully you treat it, and no matter how hard you work at it, love fades...inexplicably. It's never just one person's fault, it's a million tiny incidents that just didn't quite add up right. The most important thing at the end of the day is knowing that, no matter how it ended, no matter who walked away first, you gave it your absolute best shot.
