Love stinks-- yeah, yeah-- love stinks

How 'bout the heartbreak that's inevitably around the corner? We've all lived through that once or twice!

Break-ups come in all shapes and sizes– as you'll see in the following pages. So if you're already picking out your black ensemble for Valentine's Day and have vowed to hide in the dark 'til the smooching's over, this issue's for you.
