Abstract: This issue is the last my editorial team will produce. Lorne Campbell and his associate editors have been receiving new submissions since June 1, 2008, and the next issue will be filled with manuscripts they have processed since that time. Soon after I first began receiving new submissions on June 1, 2005, Distinguished Scholar Harry Reis (Personal Relationships, Vol. 14, Issue 1, March 2007) responded to an email from me by asking a question provoked by the title under my signature, “Editor of Personal Relationships.” “What does that mean?” he wrote. He, of course, was joking and wanted to know how I edited them. At the time I responded by subsequently italicizing the name of the journal in my email signature. In this preface, however, the two editorial assistants who worked with me over the course of my term and I try to answer his question seriously. To do so, we describe what it meant to us to edit the journal, Personal Relationships, and how we and the rest of our editorial team interpreted our job.
