How to describe love? Is love passion, stability, friendship, or all of the above? In this comics exploration, de Heer investigates different questions about love. Is there really such a thing as finding The One? What happens in the brain when we fall in love? How can we keep long-term love? What to do about a broken heart? Margreet herself seems to have found her ideal partner in Yiri, but after so many years of marriage, how about that Seven Year Itch? This book deals with many aspects of love, sex, and relationships in a lighthearted, playful, and thought-provoking manner.
