The lostlove project operated from 2001 until 2010, when the database code finally ceased operating after nearly a decade of server migrations and software upgrades. It now exists as a read-only archive of the 2924 stories that were submitted by participants. In 2001, I described this piece as follows:

losing at love is an experience everyone has gone through to some degree. the loves that we lose are the ones that we remember most vividly and for the longest. they also make the most interesting love stories. the lostlove project aims to compile stories about lost love. users enter stories which are then linked by the lostlove engine to create a metanarrative of a relationship.
