My love life is currently in flux, best described as “genuinely complicated” with a heavy dose of “timing sucks,” and I admit I’m prone to occasional moments of unfair irritation in my encounters with folks who are seemingly simply and easily in love. I expected such a flare-up when I started reading a love letter (well, love… READ MORE »
