How I’ve been feeling:
My romantic life of late has been complicated. When I describe it to others, I receive little sympathy. Friends with real issues don’t want to hear about my being burdened with a number of promising characters, decent sex, and homemade chocolate granola. But, ultimately I find the whole thing unfulfilling and emotionally exhausting. And, in the end, I am happiest going to sleep (alone) in my own big, crisp-white-sheeted bed.
