Hey Philip, do you even want to be in a relationship? How can you be so sure?

Relationships are overwhelming, especially if you approach them with a casual attitude. I mean, do you even want to be in one? How can you be so sure? Philip has asked himself these questions, and the answer is: he doesn’t do relationships. He’s got it down to a science: a job that pays the bills, work friends he meets once a week for a pint, and a friend, Lily, who knows him best. Everyone else is a casual passer-by, there for a chat, or with certain kinds of men, a bit more — from no-strings-attached fun to unbridled hedonism.

But then he meets… Someone. The change in Philip is palpable; the consequences of that meeting far-reaching.

Each story tests Philip’s hypotheses about relationships, his job and workmates, and his friends in a way he had never considered possible. All hurtling onward, seemingly unconnected, and yet, like science, interwoven. The lab of Philip’s heart and mind is hard at work.
