Caron quoted in Auburn Citizen article on downside of Valentine’s Day

Sandra Caron, a University of Maine professor of family relations and human sexuality, was quoted in an article about the downside of Valentine’s Day that was published in The Citizen of Auburn, New York. Caron said with all the advertising that goes on this time of year, people forget how painful Valentine’s Day can be for some. “It is particularly hard for people who broke up with someone and they’re single, or they’re thinking of someone they really do like and that person doesn’t like them back,” said Caron, who has studied the effects of the holiday on relationships. “We don’t want to hear about the downside of romance. Romance is great, but it can fizzle when the downside comes,” she said.
