Sometimes you have to say goodbye— relationships fail, love fades, and it comes time to leave the pair of West Village condos that you thought you’d be with forever.

Our favorite Friend Jennifer Aniston has sold her pair of apartments at 299 W. 12th Street for $6.5 million, the New York Post reports. And apparently she was somewhat desperate to be rid of them, letting them go at a $500,000 loss.

Ms. Aniston bought the condos—a one-bedroom on the 17th floor and a one-bedroom penthouse—less than a year ago, under the name of her now-dead dog Norman. Construction plans were reportedly in the works for combining the terrace-laden penthouse with the unit below, but it was not to be.

The penthouse has “one of the most beautiful terraces in the city, with unobstructed forever views,” Prudential Douglas Elliman broker Bruce Ehrmann told the Post.

It wasn’t the condos fault, it was just that Ms. Aniston, who is now dating Justin Theroux, wanted/needed? something different, something the condos couldn’t give her.

Could the condo sale signal her engagement to Mr. Theroux? A pregnancy? A futile attempt to stem the tide of despair over Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s impending nuptials?

We doubt it. Ms. Aniston has a history of New York apartment flings, looking everywhere from the Financial District to Union Square in her search for the one. And there were signs of trouble early on. In November, Ms. Aniston was spotted leaving an $8.5 million apartment at 50 Gramercy Park North.

Ms. Aniston will now presumably seek comfort in the arms of the $21 million Beverly Hills mansion that she purchased in January.
