Nasty Breakups are Normal

Back in 1975 my lover changed overnight from 100% positive toward me to 100% negative without explanation. He said we should write a book about it someday and that it would read like Rosemary’s Baby but for now he was not saying anything. I pined for decades and fruitlessly tried to get him to elaborate, but ever after, he refused even Christmas cards. If I had a time machine, I would send myself a packet of Jerry Springer and Maury Povich tapes and audio tapes from Living Love workshops where people told their tales of relationship woe. I had no idea back then that nasty, sudden, unexplained breakups were a normal part of the human condition.
