About the Book
In this issue, matchmaker Amy Van Doran suggests that, “people shouldn’t be reducing love simply to what we imagine it to be. Love is something that is getting bigger and better - more beautiful than what we imagined it to be.”
In the grand scheme of things, this quote can simply be read as is - but taken into a different perspective, a more universal one, it captures an idea of what it means to break certain structures - reimagining the concepts of more “traditional” set rules within love and our society.
