Chigago-based writer Robert K. Elder is the curator of It Was Over When, a website that documents that precise moment when you know that the relationship you are in is dead and done -- and smelling pretty ripe.
It Was Over When is dedicated to cataloging the exact moment when you realize a relationship isn't going to work. This could be years into a romance, on the first date or even before the first date. These stories can be funny, poignant, abysmally sad and universal.
For the more romantically inclined, there is also It Was Love When. I guess this is where you need to be before reality hits and you post your tales of relationship doom.
