Say you realize you fucked up something really good you had with someone and you care about that person quite a bit; do you do the movie thing and show up at their house or work or whatever and admit you were an asshole and you love them? Does that ever really work? Does anyone really do things like that? I wonder how different the world would be if we could just communicate with one another.
If the person is worth it, I always go for it and lay it all out there.
