So I just watched Blue Valentine. I hated it. Most of it. I will bitch slap the person that suggested it to me. I love love stories. This was great at times, miserable at others. It hit too close to home with the negative ends of my last relationship. But, I love both of these actors so so much and can appreciate the wonderful job that they did with this.
The part that made watching this all worth it? This wonderful quote from Ryan Goslings character Dean.
"I feel like men are more romantic than women. When we get married we marry, like, one girl, 'cause we're resistant the whole way until we meet one girl and we think I'd be an idiot if I didn't marry this girl she's so great. But it seems like girls get to a place where they just kinda pick the best option... 'Oh he's got a good job.' I mean they spend their whole life looking for Prince Charming and then they marry the guy who's got a good job and is gonna stick around. "
I have thought this many times before but have never been able to word it so perfectly. I think this is so and too often true.
