I’m sincerely in love with a man whose name I don’t know and with whom I’ve never exchanged a single word’: Notions of Romantic Love in 1960s British and Irish Women's Magazines.

Both ‘true love’ and the phenomenon of ‘love at first sight’ featured as part of debates about mid-century everyday romantic relationships. Was it possible to love someone without ever speaking to them? Was sex the ultimate confirmation of love? Did emotion hold a privileged position when it came to choosing a partner? This talk will explore how the concept of ‘love’ was presented, understood, and manipulated through the lens of letters to women’s magazines in 1950s and 1960s Britain and Ireland.
