I was determined to find out precisely what happened between American boys and girls when they started liking each other, and what I was supposed to say and do in order to reach the stage when ‘the Pill’ would prove necessary.
Armed with a highlighter and a pen, I looked for words and expressions that had to do with American conduct in courtship and wrote them out on separate cards, just like my English teacher in St Petersburg had taught me.
The easier option is to just focus on yourself and swear off relationships. As time really does help to heal the wounds of the past.
That time is different for all of us but, the quicker we accept that it is over the quicker we can heal.
This is exactly what I did for a long time after going through a very bad heart-break and break-up.
I just hung on to my sad story and told it over and over again to anyone who would listen to me.
When Rankin went to Congo he wanted to capture images of love in a land of conflict.
