  1. “We pick apart what every forthright click and social media silence means. We watch as we consciously and knowingly scroll further and further away from each other until our Mutual Friends are ‘0’ and we’re on the other side of the fence…” Really, really good.

  2. Thank you, pal!! You’ll be happy to know that I completed The US Office and have since watched the entire series thrice over (on my boyfriends Netflix account). EVERY CLOUD.

  3. Love this! You write beautifully. Being someone who has also recently watched The Office US more times than I care to count, I can completely understand the devastation of not being able to continue binging on it!

  4. Thanks for this article! My ex removed me from Netflix and Hulu last night and I was trying to find its meaning (currently in no contact, but we don’t hate each other…in fact, we are both sad over the breakup that was due to long distance difficulties).

    Did you ever find out why he removed you? Would love to know what he said when you asked him about it.

  5. I’ve only just seen this – apologies for the extreme delay in response! Did you ever find the meaning for the removal? Did you ever chat about it? I’m so sorry you’re going through/went through that. Heartbreak is abso-fucking-lutely awful and there’s nothing anyone can say to lessen the blow but I do hope time has helped heal, even if only in a tiny way.

    In regards to your question: I swiftly called my ex and was like “YO DUDE, WHY THE HELL DID YOU REMOVE ME?!” and he said something along the lines of “Oh sorry! I thought you didn’t use it anymore” which I think was a thinly veiled way of saying “get your own damn netflix!”. He’s an incredibly lovely human and told me I could hop back on it if need be but I relented and started paying for it myself.

    Having experienced another break-up since then, I think my ex ex (henceforth referred to as ‘netflix ex’) maybe wanted all digital reminders of me removed. I had to do a digital cleanse recently and remove all trace of my ex’s name because I was more fragile this time round, so maybe netflix ex felt then how I do now? We remained good friends for a long time afterwards and, despite not having spoken in years, I still consider him a friend. x
