"If you could give your eighteen year old self a piece of advice, what would you say?"
"Don’t date that girl for seven years in your twenties."
"At what point did you realize the relationship wasn’t going to work out?"
"Probably about four years in."
"So why did you stay in it?"
"Time flies. And with each passing year, we had more and more invested in it. But we kept growing farther apart. We thought a dog might help bring us closer together, so we got a dog. But it didn’t help. And a year passed. Then we thought maybe if we moved from the suburbs to the city, it might help. But it didn’t. And another year passed. Then we thought maybe if we got a bigger place. So we did, but it didn’t help. Then it got to the point where I started thinking, maybe The Next Step will help bring us closer together. But luckily it ended before that."
