These short stories and creative columns examine entertaining but stressful problems about people merely doing what nature mandates. They seek love or companionship on dating websites and meet people at work or on the phone or even at the southern border. They marry or date and quarrel with each other or former spouses unwilling to step aside. They tire of each other and seek intimacy wherever and however they can find it. They break up and reconcile and divorce and do so in ways reasonable and outrageous. That’s how it is in Tales of Romance.
