RELATIONSHIP STATUS: IT’S COMPLICATED
Status updates hide the pain and, often, stupidity that is the search for love. This quest leads us through the most ridiculous, and possibly dangerous, situations. RELATIONSHIP STATUS: IT’S COMPLICATED explores the many ways that finding love today is much like the first human’s quest for fire — pretty insane.
