Romantic Thoughts: When will it be our turn?


A young female and young male hand with index fingers entwined.  She has a small gold ring on her middle finger.  He has a black watch on his wrist.

During these quiet days of isolation, I find myself a bit more apt to read romance stories, watch over-the-top Hallmark movies and the occasional Rom Com. In almost every story of this genre the plot is always the same. Open with a sweet, loveable, gorgeous girl. An equally handsome guy who's either a work-aholic or a jerk, add best friend, a break up, and another handsome fella who has no interest in romance only to fall head-over-heels by the end. While I do sometimes find them amusing, one thought always crosses my mind… When will it be our turn?
