Hmm. It’s interesting you and others say that my article is promoting romanticism. I don’t see it that way. I don’t think the things I listed are fantasy ideals. When I was younger, I also was a hopeless romantic and bought into these notions of love being what would save me or would be picture perfect and without flaw.

But now I know, and I believe I portrayed in this article, that love is often more mundane. It’s imperfect. It’s not like what we read in fairytales.

I’m not sure where in this article I wrote like I portrayed the right person as someone you’d read in a fairytale.
