This happens in our personal lives and our romantic relationships too.
You want to fly into a rage and start screaming whenever you see a happy couple, a wedding ad, or a text rejecting you. Love sucks because it’s some sort of weird, rare thing that we’re told will happen to us within a certain timeframe, and it doesn’t always happen.

What if you meet someone you’d normally be interested in through work or through a friend?Relationships that are on the decline can become as demanding and taxing as a full-time job.
