In other news, the NY Times claims that denial is good for relationships.
See, this is where I've been going wrong all along. When someone asks "Do you love me?" I tend to say something simple and faithless like "Yes, of course", when what I should really be saying is "Love? Who said anything about love?".
Actually, I find this kind of upsetting. I've always blamed my constant state of being in denial for the fact that I'm not in a relationship. Now it seems that can't be it. Maybe I'm not in denial at all. Maybe I'm just in denial about not being in denial. It's all so confusing.
P.S. Not that I have a problem with not being in a relationship, of course. Oh no. Absolutely not.
