One is the Loneliest Number
But love may not be the answer
Isn’t love a perfectly good solution to loneliness? Isn’t love the deepest, strongest bond we can have with another person? Isn’t love the basis of all relationships that matter?
The answer is the same to all these questions: yes, and no. Love absolutely brings people together. When someone who’s been a stranger becomes a lover, in our eyes, they become infused with an almost surreal importance. It can be hard to tell where you end and they begin...and you both like it that way.
