This season is the time for new dresses, weekend trips with your girlfriends, and seething in annoyance as couples make out in subway entrances. The term “spring fever,” or “love is in the air” are often used to describe those warm, honeymoon feelings one gets at the start of a new relationship. Spring helps everyone shake off the sadness from a gloomy winter and leap into the arms of a new squeeze.
Well, there’s also the other spring fever–the one that no one wants to talk about it when they’re happy and in love. This specific fever describes the slightly crazy things we’ll do for the attention of the ones we love.
We’ve all been there. There’s no way else to say it–lovesickness sucks–especially when Hallmark is telling us to be in love.
Paper Lantern Lit would love to hear some stories about the awful or hilarious, retrospectively embarrassing or even successful things you’ve done for love. For example, I, intern Carla, ran my car into a snowbank after driving through tears to tell my high school ex that we were meant to be! After a humiliating and silent car ride home from him, I decided I’d save my craziness for someone who was, you know, actually worth it!
