I'm a huge fan of Jim Carey. I used to be obsessed with the guy as a child. I'd go out of my way to watch every single one of his movies, and I'm sure everyone in my family was fed up with my Ace Ventura impressions. As I got older and started becoming interested in the personal lives of actors, I found out something about my favorite actor that's kind of detracted from his performances for me.
That he ended up leaving his first wife of eight years, the woman who stood by him and who he credits with helping launch his career, after meeting Lauren Holly on the set of Dumb and Dumber...apparently through an email. Then there was that whole business of him allegedly dumping his Irish girlfriend over text.
I'm not saying people should never break-up; it happens, and if you're going for a great relationship and you play that out with someone who isn't the one for you, sure, it's a sad ending, but at least you can walk away with some pride. But trying to maintain an honest and loving relationship and thing ending things via text or email is pretty grimy.
Cue the story of young, former couple, Wyatt Hall and Kirsten Titus. They're students at Brigham Young University.
Titus said in an interview with BuzzFeed that she went on "a lot of creative dates" with Titus, like planting a cactus on a mountain. Which is kinda random, but I guess it could be pretty cool, because how many times do you associate cacti with mountains? Maybe they wanted to give the little plant a better view, I dunno.
Titus said she started getting the feeling that both her and Wyatt thought they would be better as friends, so she created a Spotify playlist to end things.
It packed a not-so-subtle message.
It turns out Titus' younger sister, Erika, thought it'd be a good idea to tweet a screenshot of the playlist, and it kinda blew up.
Kirsten asked her sister to delete her tweet, but was also laughing about it? Nervous laughter, I guess?
But there were people on Twitter who thought it was a great way to let someone down.
Wyatt says he got the message from the playlist right away and says he isn't brokenhearted at all.
He says he found the whole thing "kinda funny," and that his relationship with Kirsten wasn't that serious. So he sent her a one-track playlist response.
And now other girls are sending Wyatt their playlists too...
I think our man is gonna be all right.
