Looking for Love in One of the Wrong Places

Love

Because I refuse to meditate upon his personal life for even a moment longer than is necessary, I’m unsure as to how the very profligate Dayn Perry not only (a) made his way to a site called Twit Amore — which site encourages visitors to “Discover who they love on Twitter” — but also (b) decided to engage said website in the service of that Discovery.

As the image above indicates, however, Perry did both of those things — and the results, we will say, are really of benefit to no one. If Perry has ever loved the author, he has done so only with the aid of a preposition — which is to say, he has loved on and astride and towards the author, but never just the author himself, in the accusative form of the noun.
