How to tell from the ones who want us and the ones who don't, the ones who will stay and the ones who will leave.

Maybe the happy ending is... just... moving on. Or maybe the happy ending is this, knowing after all the unreturned phone calls, broken-hearts, through the blunders and misread signals, through all the pain and embarrassment you never gave up hope."
