Dear Romeo,

I have finally found you. after years of disappointment and heartbreak and losing myself to idealistic fantasies of perfection, you came into my life and surprised me. you’re everything i’ve been looking for. and to think i’d become so jaded, i almost didn’t agree to a first date with you. now i’m looking forward to forever with you.

love,
juliet

The feminist Erica Jong wrote that love is, in fact, everything that it’s cracked up to be. It is completely worth the heartache; it is totally worth the fight. Cynicism comes from fighting too long; it is just sour grapes.

At the same time, I wonder what your friends think about you being in love. After all, they’re used to you being single and jaded. I would guess that although they may be happy for you, one or two of them might be reminding you of your single life, because they’re used to you being single.

Real love changes you, and change is difficult. One of the reasons that it is difficult is that your environment doesn’t always change with you.
