This girl figured out the most brilliant way to deal with her ex-boyfriend in all of her vacation pics

One of the most awkward aspects of ending a relationship is figuring out what to do with all of the evidence: the borrowed hoodies, the past text messages, and, of course, the myriad of couple photos.

Baylee Woodward is a 19-year-old who, up until recently, worked on a yacht and got to travel the world. Her job took her to over 12 different countries, and, as a result, Baylee’s Instagram feed is pretty enviable. 

One of the most frequent fixtures in Baylee’s Instagram feed was her boyfriend, Garren.

Garren was also Baylee’s boss on the yacht — which made for a pretty sticky situation when he abruptly fired her and broke up with her in one fell swoop.

“The breakup was rough because he was my travel partner for a year,” Baylee tells BuzzFeed. “We were together literally 24/7, and then he just fired me out of nowhere.”

As a result, Baylee had all of these amazing travel photos that she was unable to share because they prominently featured her ex. Her solution? Replace her boyfriend with Zac Efron in every single snapshot, of course!

Baylee uploaded her Efron-upgraded pics to Facebook, with the caption:

Throw back to some great adventures in the last few months, can’t wait to start this next adventure in my life solo (Sorry Zac Efron, you’re not in it)

On a side note, please be in it Zac Efron

(When all your cute travel pictures have your ex boyfriend in them so you have to improvise)

Now, instead of constant, painful reminders of her ex, Baylee can just look back fondly at her photos and imagine an epic vacation with her fantasy movie star boyfriend.

After all, Zac never takes a bad photo.

And he seems to be SUCH an attentive boyfriend.

Baylee tells BuzzFeed that she really wasn’t trying to be petty with the Photoshop gimmick — she just really wanted to be able to share her vacation photos without giving people the wrong idea.

“It was just so I could still post cute pictures and people not think we’re back together.”

“I didn’t want to be childish, but I know he won’t take it that way because he knows me.”

Don’t worry, Baylee. At the very least, Zac totally understands you.

Baylee says that the positive response she’s gotten from her Facebook commenters has been truly heartening, and that she’s already moved on to greener pastures — or, more appropriately, bluer waters.

“I love how much support I’ve gotten” she tells BuzzFeed. “I just got a job on a yacht, and after that I plan on traveling to Europe and Asia for a few months if I can find a new travel partner.”

And who knows? Maybe after seeing these fake pics, Zac Efron himself will volunteer for the position.
