You’ve seen the seeds of their emotionally devastating breakup on Twitter. You know where to craft the next hilarious link in the sad story of this week’s hottest meme. But did you ever wonder how it all came to be? CertMag presents a special 29-part investigation.
I find this colorful chart to be immensely interesting.

I’m totes bored and this file is taking for-EVER.
Enter a Handsome Stranger
Now I’m not going to finish that report. But Helpdesk Boy is kind of a fox …
The Next Day at Work
No, he was way cute. I bet he’d go out with me.
A Chance Encounter
Hi, remember me? You totally fixed my computer at work!
The First Date
Sorry about the restaurant window thing. It’s OK; you’re not so bad.
Good Times Rolling
Let’s be fun and spontaneous! I know this art house that shows old movies.
My New Girlfriend
It was a little weird at first, but now I’m totally diggin’ on her.
The Second Date
‘I drink your milkshake!’ Wait, you never saw that movie?
He’s the One

I’m sooo happy. I wonder what will happen next? [Foreshadow, foreshadow]
You’re so cute. No you’re so cute. No you’re so cute.
Look Away, Baby
The first sign of trouble. [Oops]
Yeah, yeah, we’re getting married. She was way into it when I proposed.
Hi, Mom! Yeah, the wedding was great. We just moved into our first new place.
A Big Surprise
If it’s a girl, we should totally name her after your mom.
Baby (Almost) Makes Three
What about our delayed honeymoon to Paris? There’s still time to go!
Confused in Paris
Distant Early Warning
I think the Eiffel Tower is that way. Look! Let’s ask that friendly local woman. [Minor key]
You’re so nice to point out the Eiffel Tower to us. Let’s all take a selfie!
We all look so good together! What a fun and random encounter on the streets of Gay Paree!
BUT THEN IT ALL STARTED TO FALL APART.
Aaaaand this is where the rest of the world came in:
The Stalk/Stock Heard Round the World
Shazaaay-am! I bet I totally got away with sneaking a peek, too. [LET THE MEMES BEGIN]
You mocked her pain! Never do it again. That’s not where the story ended, though. Soon things stopped being so blissful and carefree …
It’s all your fault. My fault?! I wasn’t the one who had to ask where the Eiffel Tower is.
Sorry we didn’t call on your birthday, Mom. Things have been a little rough.
The Marriage Counselor
So, tell me about this French woman? Well, it all started the day that my computer didn’t work …
I’m not the bad guy! Everything I said to that marriage counselor is true!
Talk to the Hand
We can fix this! Talk to my lawyer, pal.
End of the Line

Aftermath, Part 1 — Despair
Man, I sure screwed that up. I’ve lost everything.
Aftermath, Part 2 — Totes Besties
Oh, him. Yeah, we’re not together anymore. But I’m so glad that you could move here from France!
