there is a concept that has been coined the 'grand gesture'. it is an act of romantic redemption. it occurs AFTER it has been made apparently clear that someone is truly blowing it. now the level of how 'grand' this gesture needs to be depends on the person walking away.
so what is a demonstration of love??
is it shown through humility or pride? words or actions? ideals or reality?
