Happy Valentine’s Day…

TODAY ISN’T A BIG DEAL FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE, of course. Specifically, single people, or people who are recently single. For those folks, this great piece at Vox.com, “The 7 things I did to get over a big breakup — and why research says they work” might be helpful.  I wish I had this column a year ago (and, two years ago, too); I love checklists, and I could have used this list all in one place.  Looking back, I stumbled and careened through all of these, and out the other side. You could also put all 7 things under the title of “Learning and loving being alone for awhile.”

Did you know that being in love involves the same neural circuitry as a cocaine addiction? Indeed, it’s all in that article. I didn’t know that, though I’m not surprised: the withdrawal symptoms can be terrible!

All that aside, Happy Valentine’s Day!
