How many times have you said, ‘This is it. I’ve finally found my one true love’? And how many times has the reality turned out differently? Paperback romances and fairy tales promote an ideal of a first and only love, but few of us can claim to have had such uncomplicated good fortune. For most people, the process of finding the perfect partner is one trial and error: breakups, makeups, missed opportunities and misunderstandings. Human love is a fragile creation, and sometimes the smallest thing – the wrong choice of words or a single clumsy gesture – can make love shatter, stall or fade away.

Haruki Murakami


To return to love, to get the love we always wanted but never had, to have the love we want but are not prepared to give, we seek romantic relationships.

Love saves us only if we want to be saved.
