Love-Drunk or Hungover

No, we’re not talking about drunken one-night stands. We’re talking about the two very different ends of the love spectrum: the blissful euphoria of a relationship gone right (love-drunkenness) or the pain and regret of a relationship gone wrong (a love hangover).

Thanks to the band Boys Like Girls for the fantastic metaphor!
