NYT: Modern Love

Modern Love is a weekly column in the New York Times Style section that does pretty much what it says. Each week has a different writer discuss or describe their version of modern love. The topics range from fatherhood, parental love to romantic rejection for toddlers. Two recent examples of columns are as follows:

Finding Marriage Without Losing a Self
By Jillian Lauren
An ex-heroin addict and escort finds the perfect man. But should she marry him?

Chatting Up the Trophy Girl, Toddler Style
By Albert Stern
A toddler was getting the brush-off from an alluring female he hoped to impress, and his father wanted to share some hard-won male insight.

As a left of centre, non-religious, white, degree-educated female, I feel a twinge of satisfaction when a man facing impending fatherhood turns to meditation to help him find some answers. I was reminded of the Modern Love column when the oniline dating site, match.com, ad came on and a man and a woman found each other while playing musical instruments and singing together about the Godfather 3. Everyone wants love, they say, but it’s not always what you think it is. I just thought I would share.
