The summer I was 13, Kerry Flanagan and I took turns sleeping over at each other's houses. We stayed up all night playing Rummy 500 and listening to Rock101, the local rock station. It was the late-1980s, the high holy days of hair metal, dudes in spandex, and girls in music videos.

Hi A-Ken. How are things? Probably not that good because we're not dating. Haha. Not a joke. I know you're probably busy being "famous" and "making blockbuster movies" and having "millions of fans," but I thought it would be irresponsible of me not to alert you of our undeniable compatibility.

In the Toy Story films, the primary personal relationship on display is friendship. And yet, although the films are not romances, there are more realistic representations of romantic love threaded through the three movies than you'll find in a multiplex full of romantic comedies.

The major problem with dating is that rejection causes people to doubt whether they are lovable. This is not acceptable. Just because someone does not choose to love you, does NOT mean you are not lovable. Love comes from within, it is not granted by another.

if you ghost someone, it implies that you think that the other person likes you so so much and is going to be crushed if you aren't interested. We probably all would like to think this, but chances are it's not true. Rejecting someone is hard, but just rip the bandaid off and do it already.

There's no denying that we all love love, but love doesn't unfold in three perfect acts like in the movies.
