What if Jess from “New Girl” dated Seth Cohen from “The OC”?
We aren’t suggesting you should ever, ever play this prank on your single friends. Because besides the fact that it’s mean and cruel and will make them question all their life choices, or at least the ones of the night before, how would you even have the resources?
Though you know that almost nothing can take that “I lost my keys/soulmate” feeling away, consider this: no human has ever not been broken up with.
