The science of breaking up…
Remy always knows when to give a guy "the speech"- right after the initial romantic rush, but before anything gets to serious. She's had her fair share of boyfriends, and she's learned all there is to learn from her mother, who's currently working on husband, number five. So why it is that Remy can't seem to dump Dexter?
