It Was Over When is dedicated to cataloging the exact moment when you realize a relationship isn’t going to work. This could be years into a romance, on the first date or even before the first date. These stories can be funny, poignant, abysmally sad and universal. The aim: To provide a bit of comfort, humor and, hopefully, healing identification. Based on Elder's website of the same name.
