I'm no stranger to the perils of unrequited love — and is there anything more devastating than not having one's affection returned? If one positive thing can be said about not having your feelings answered, it's that it makes one heck of a compelling story, and it's not a new concept to literature. From Shakespeare to Victor Hugo, from J. Rowling to Louisa May Alcott, the mines of unrequited love seem exhaustible, and with good reason. We allow ourselves to dwell in the fantasy of the person without ever having to deal with the very worst of a reality with them.
