I Love You: Opening Remarks to Intimate Strangers by L. B. Rubin

““I love you”–magical words, longed for, hoped for, dreamed about. “I love you”–words that hold out the promise that loneliness will be stilled, that life will at last be complete. Once, not so long ago, we heard those words and thought about forever. Once, they signaled the end of the search, meant that we would marry and live happily ever after. Now, we’re not so sure.”

Rubin, Lillian B. 1983. Intimate Strangers: Men and Women Together. New York: Harper & Row. [Page 1. First paragraph of the book.]
