The last time we talked to Jacob Hess, it was about politics.
This time, it's about romance. So much for avoiding the touchy subjects.
The same Dr. Jacob Z. Hess who teamed up with Phil Neisser for a book on liberals and conservatives actually talking observes that romantic couples seem to have great difficulty talking these days.
And Hess says our whole cultural attitude toward romance may be out of whack.
His book on the subject is Once Upon a Time... He Wasn't Feeling It Anymore/What's Killing Romance in America.
