Behind the Book: All You Want For Christmas Is a Soulmate

See how many of these you can answer:

* Science says that love changes between a couple: from oogey-gooey to completely stale, and then back to mushy. Why do we have to suffer through the Take This Sh*t Back Because It's Stale phase?

* Science says a human's brain shuts off the romantic stage of love after two years of dating. Why can't the brain stay at Sinéad O'Connor's Nothing Compares 2 U stage, forever?

* Why can't some women--who want to be married--find a f*cking husband? (I mean, what's so HARD about this, God? Huh?)

* Why does it seem like there are no eligible men on Planet Earth?

*Why are all the eligible men on Planet Earth ugly?

* Why are all the married people acting like marriage is wack?

*Why can't married people be happy that they actually FOUND someone? (With their ungrateful asses.)

* Why can't I imagine liking someone long enough to get married to them?

* What is the point of love, if it fades over time?


Some of these questions float around in Rachel's head. These are the same questions she attempts to answer in What If You're Over My Sh*t?. Hopefully, she can answer them before she finds herself in divorce court.


Why Are We Afraid To Have It ALL?
