    I know. I used to fantasize about, what if he (the perfect guy I met last year) and I were alone in this world. I suppose this is immature and naively romantic.

    Yes. 'De Profundis' and 'The Ballad of Reading Gaol'. But they are not depressing. They break your heart and leave you feeling better somehow, if that is possible.
