couple fighting

The crushing blow of knowing that someone who you care about and have strong feelings for (maybe even love), doesn’t feel the same way about you anymore is a real slap in the face. It begins with a suspicion which slowly but surely festers into paranoia, and a sense that everything you do is off-putting or annoying to them.

That sounds a bit complicated, but essentially, it’s a test that your car has to go through in order to deem if its ‘driveable’ on the roads of Ireland.
