Modern Love  
To all my MC friends, one of my else-net friends just posted this to LJ:

One of your fellow students won a NYT writing contest - it's a great essay.

Nicely done.

I think it's interesting because even though this is written by someone who is probably around twenty, it could have been written by a woman who is thirty, forty or fifty or sixty. There would probably just be more guys or a couple who lasted about 10 years or so and then either literally took off or is/was emotionally missing in action.

Ah - excellent point. I was thinking that it resonated with me particularly well (even though I'm not in quite the same space she is) and I think that part of the reason is that, as you say, it could have been written by a woman of almost any age.
