Vicarious consolation, that's what I want.
The worst break-ups are the ones where the other person is as nice as can be.* No yelling, no blaming, no pleading. Even if they aren't expecting it and don't want it, they still show how much they care about you by being so damn considerate and concerned and understanding about the fact that it's what's best for you, when all you really want them to do is give you one long string of cuss words. Or a punch in the nose.

*As if I am the break-up queen. Ha! Thank goodness I'm not. Break-ups would be done very shoddily if I were in charge of them.
