Dear Angelo,

In a city where everyone is disposable, how does one go about falling in love?

Signed, Hopeless In Hell's Kitchen

Dear Hopeless In Hell's Kitchen (Hell's Kitchen is a gayborhood in Manhattan, NY),

It is risky to care -- you may get disappointed. But in trying to protect yourself from more pain, you can easily cut yourself off from the many delicious delights that life has to offer, including love -- the very thing you so desire. No, this isn't a message from a Chinese fortune cookie. It's me saying don't get cynical, close down, and give up. Let hurt go. Get hopeful.

So many people get negative, turning bitter, calloused, angry, and cold, numbing out, bound by addiction. They feel worried, depressed, defeated, and sour on life. This inhibits the opening of new doors.

You've got to trust that things will get better. You've got to live life with the same excitement and enthusiasm as if you had that special one, expecting good things ahead. You can choose to remain confident that love is on the way, believing that while you don't know when, love will find you...

All The Best, Angelo.
