Recently, while researching the works of Ove Arup (1895-1988), I came across the following passages from Arup's personal diary about unrequited romance and lovesickness of such hilariously melodramatic proportions that I could not resist sharing them with you. I believe we all have a friend like this - I know I do - and if you believe you don't, you're probably that friend with all the lovelife drama.
These passages were taken from Peter Jones, Ove Arup: Master Builder of the Twentieth Century (2006). London, New Haven : Yale University Press, pp.28-41
