Interview With My Ex-Girlfriend: Meg

Welcome to Interviews With My Ex-Girlfriend, in which Autostraddle writers get back in touch with their ex-girlfriends to ask them Five Simple Questions:

How long did we date?
Why did we break up?
What did you learn from our relationship?
What do you miss most about me?
Would you invite me to your wedding (why/why not)?

Grace (left) and Meg (right), circa 2011. Despite being best friends now, we have zero pictures together. Literally none. That probably says a lot about us.

Grace: Are you ready? Are any of us ready.

Meg: Let's do this.

Grace: Ok. Five questions. First question: How long were we together, and when?

Meg: We were together from November to the very end of January my sophomore year in college.

Grace: So 2011 to 2012.

Meg: That's how long we were together. Like together together.

Grace: Right. Why did we break up, to the best of your recollection?

Meg: (laughs)

Grace: Riese and Rachel wrote these questions. It wasn't me.

Meg: Mhm...

Before you go! 99.9% of our readers don't support Autostraddle. Still, it takes funding to keep this indie queer publication running every day. And the majority of our funding comes from readers like you. That's less than 1% of our readers who keep Autostraddle around for EVERYBODY. Will you join them?

Grace Ellis has been writing and making hack-job graphics for Autostraddle since 2011 and is a co-creator and co-writer of the comic book series Lumberjanes. She is mostly an intern in name only. (Mostly.) She lives in Columbus, Ohio because why anything. Also, she wants to write the Black Widow movie and feels like if she just keeps telling people, eventually she will be allowed to do it. She has a Twitter and a Tumblr, both of which are pretty above average.

Grace has written 88 articles for us.
