People can't want what they want
Bachelor visits library, books wife (nonfiction)
Love at first sight is blind
My heart is my strongest muscle
Good as friends, disaster as lovers
Married a hottie, divorced a hothead.
I love you and I'm leaving
Everyone's crazy except you and me.
Some of these are heartbreaking, some make me smile, and some are just infuriating.
"He posted our sex tape online"
"Unrequited love is just another addiction"
"Boyfriend? In the nightstand with batteries"
"It's worth it, despite your mother"
