Why can’t love be like the movies? Adoring suitors, perfect love confessions, and kisses in the pouring rain. Is real-life romance a bust, or are we not watching close enough? Hear from Sleepless in Seattle creator and writer, Jeff Arch.

In part one of two, I give my husband a chance to defend himself, lament with my sister, and discover whether or not the writers of romance movies lead the lives we dream of. Tune in next week as the conversation with Jeff continues in Part Two, followed by more conversations with friends, family and the elderly about lifelong, off-screen love.
