It's a Love Emergency! Am I right? There's a growing itch in the romantic sphere, and it needs immediate scratching. I mean it really can't wait for a few more days to pass; something's got to be done soon. It may be true that this thickening of the plot has been underway for quite a while, and its growing urgency may have snuck up on you.
It also may be true that the shift will ultimately be a promising development. But that doesn't mean you can afford to be casual about it. Take action!
