YOU AREN'T ALONE
THE PROBLEM HAS BEEN AROUND A LONG TIME:
In a play called The Devil's Law Case,
written by John Webster (1560-1625),
a suitor says to a lady who has rejected him:
I will leave you excellent lady, and withal
Leave a heart with you so entirely yours,
That I protest, had I the least of hope
To enjoy you, though I were to wait the time
That scholars do in taking their degree
In the noble arts, 'twere nothing.
