Back in 1962, Neil Sedaka, an American singer, songwriter, and record producer, co-wrote and first recorded his signature single, “Breaking Up Is Hard to Do.” (In the early 70’s, it was a “top-40” hit three separate times for subsequent versions released by Sedaka, Lenny Welch, and The Partridge Family.)
And while the song saccharinely laments the end of a relationship, in real life, parting with a loved one can be extremely unpleasant and trigger intense feelings of sadness and despair. Dr. Sue Varma, a board-certified psychiatrist and couples’ therapist, has noted, "We fear being alone, and have distorted perceptions about never finding someone again. It's a common thought and a reason we stay in dead-end relationships."
Ironically, “dead ends” frequently pop up in the Ridder Universe – where the trials and tribulations of dating and romance are dissected (both literally and figuratively). And IMAGINE ME, Blake Ridder’s latest short, is certainly no exception.
In this story, while a young man seeks to rekindle his relationship with an ex, things don’t go precisely as planned …. (Spoiler alert: In fact, things get quite deadly.)

“Comma, comma, down dooby doo down down …. Breaking up is hard to do.”
Now don’t be a heart-breaker. Give this short a chance!
