I have been thinking about the pains of relationship break-ups and their possible causes. What's the evolutionary path to responses like these?

Been pretty regular on running and cycling trainings. Work was ok. Finished watching Parks & Recreation. Currently reading Crime and Punishment at a steady pace. I would like to finish A Link to the Past before the end of the month but it will be difficult. Pretty good month overall!
