I just found out Meg Ryan and John Mellencamp were a thing last week.

And now it turns out it's over, and they've been seeing each other for THREE YEARS! It's too bad, they look like a cute couple.

Proof that if you're a celebrity and you want to keep things quiet, you can.

Did you know that Ryan and Mellencamp were dating? Before you throw a parade, People reports that they’ve ended their three-year relationship, which began shortly after he split from his wife of 18 years.

Since Ryan and Mellencamp can’t cite media intrusion for the demise of their relationship, what broke them up? A source said: “It was the distance. She lives in New York and he resides in Indiana. It was the long distance that ultimately was the cause.”

When asked about moving to New York, Mellencamp said, “I’m too sensitive to live there. I can't see poor people. I can't see the suffering. I can't see the trash on the streets. I’m not leaving Indiana. I’m going to die here.”

All righty then, sir!

Long-distance relationships are awful. It’s surprising that they lasted as long as they did!

How long could you be in a long distance relationship before one of you would have to move?
