After a three and a half hour walk from Manhattan to Queens, an hour-long drive from my boyfriend’s apartment in Astoria to Flushing to drop off my coworker who made the trek with me, another half-hour drive to my apartment in Jackson Heights, followed by a one-hour drive to my boyfriend’s family’s house in Yorktown, your faithful guest blogger T.H. has returned for my final day here at Search for Love.
