In a recent Sociological Review paper Julia Carter, Senior Lecturer at Canterbury Christ Church University, reported on the curious absence of love in young women's account of their relationships. She found that many of these women struggled to talk about their feelings in general and about love in particular. Contrary to sociological theories of individualisation, Carter discovered a tendency to describe 'drifting' into relationships which 'just happened'. In this interview, she reflects on the paper and places it in the broader context of the sociology of love.
