While flipping through a copy of People recently, I saw that in the "out" section of a recent Style Watch "in" and "out" list—sandwiched between things like "stainless steel home decor" and "molten chocolate cake"—was "long distance relationships."
This struck me as something that really could never be either in or out, so I had to hear the explanation.
"It's part of a new green, eco-conscious attitude: Break up with your out-of-state boyfriend or girlfriend because it's not sustainable, and date local!" Jennifer Ganshirt of Frank About Women, a marketing-to-women consulting firm, told the mag. Lemondrop: Long-Distance Relationships Don't Work (Except When They Do)
Granted, it makes for a lot of fantastic break-up lines: "Colin, it's not you, it's the environment," or, "I think we should see more sustainable people" or even, "There's another woman: Mother Earth."
