By kat_rosenfieldFebruary 27, 2015
Dear Auntie SparkNotes, I've always been cynical towards the idea of romance, even when I was a kid. To me, love is something that only exists in stories and that anyone who goes into a romantic relationship, especially if they are young, is destined to be ... More  →
