Op-Ed: I confessed to all of my crushes, and you should too

I am a hopeless romantic. I love love. Not only the concept, but also the feeling of it. And if you were my roommate, you would be tired of hearing the stories I had with guys that I’ve recently seen. But I'm not here to talk about these guys, so don’t worry. I’m here to explain the hope and beauty of being a hopeless romantic.
