We just found out that a long-time highschool buddy of ours split with his girlfriend. *sigh* They had been together for 7 years.
She got a job near San Francisco and he busted his ass to try to find a job there too. At the end of last year and the first part of this year, he passed up some pretty good offers here in Vancouver because he wanted to be in San Fran with her. The ones he passed up on weren't great offers, but in light of the economic downturn, they were pretty decent.
At the end of September, he finally got something and moved down there. His parting e-mail was bouncie, optimistic, full of hope and mentioned that his girlfriend who was already working there was a large factor in his decision to hold out for a job opportunity there.
Poor guy must've been dumped just as he got off the plane... because Husband Guy's Best Man told him today that they broke up "2 months ago". Apparently, she'd been seeing someone else.
