I’ve got to be honest, I am sick and tired of every other conversation on the internet being about romantic relationships. We get it, your husband’s annoying. Oh, you have a podcast that solely consists of provocative arguments with your partner? Groundbreaking. Whether coupled up or single, everybody seems to have a chip on their shoulder about love.
While it annoys me, I also have to admit there is a reason that we can’t stop talking about these things. Most of us are taught from a young age that romance is one of the best experiences we can ever hope for. Plus, it has the ability to change you beyond recognition when it happens. This makes it a topic that it is hard to ignore, and also gives some of us mighty cringeworthy presence on dating apps. Being a jerk won’t stop you from getting hurt, but that doesn’t stop many people.
