Best Modern Love Columns

The New York Time’s Modern Love Column is one of my absolute favorites. It tells a variety of different stories depending on the column that particular day. Some of them are sad stories about married and single life. Some are happy stories that feel you with some type of joy. These are my personal favorite ones that are a mixture of the two.

1. Sometimes, It’s Not You

This is an interesting piece about being a 30-year-old unmarried woman who really wants to be married. She confesses that she’s not denying marriage for any particular reason. Instead, she craves this and dreams of it really happening. “What’s wrong with me? Plenty. But that was never the point.” This ending statement is really beautiful and charming.  I love this so much.

2. The Race Grows Sweeter Near Its Final Lap 

An endearing tale about finding love later on in life. It’s neither of their first marriages but they find comfort and love with one another which is all that you can hope for.

3. How I Got to Here

This story is so beautifully written that you can’t help but fall in love with it. You can feel how honest and raw the story is. It’s about a divorced woman who has kids and her adventures in dating one particular lifelong bachelor. It has a few twists which make it unique and keep you holding on until the last word.

4. Age Is No Obstacle to Love, or Adventure

Another tale about being older and finding love. I like this one as well because of how personal it is. It’s a new personal experience told from their own point of view. I really enjoy this one.

5. Good Enough? That’s Great 

This is a more unique one since it’s not one personal love story as usual. Instead, it’s from the point of view of Modern Love’s editor Daniel Jones. He talks about how the two questions asked by all the readers that submit a story into Modern Love is either “How do I find love?” or “How do I get it back?” He explores these two and also reveals more about the particular stories told and the answers received by them.

6. A Life Plan For Two, Followed By One

This story is such a charming look at the crushes that we have. I love her writing style and just the general way she tells this story. This was the first Modern Love article I ever read and it’s safe to say it got me hooked!
