Today's post is going to go hand in hand with some quotes from the movie He's Just Not That Into You. Specifically from my favorite Character, Gigi. I relate really well with her and I love her in the movie.
The first quote is when she thinks Alex likes her and they get into a fight.
"I may dissect each little thing and put myself out there so much but at least that means that I still care. Oh! You've think you won because women are expendable to you. You may not get hurt or make an ass of yourself that way but you don't fall in love that way either. You have not won. You're alone. I may do a lot of stupid shit but I'm still a lot closer to love than you are."
The second quote is from the end of the movie.
"Girls are taught a lot of stuff growing up. If a guy punches you he likes you. Never try to trim your own bangs and someday you will meet a wonderful guy and get your very own happy ending. Every movie we see, Every story we're told implores us to wait for it, the third act twist, the unexpected declaration of love, the exception to the rule. But sometimes we're so focused on finding our happy ending we don't learn how to read the signs. How to tell from the ones who want us and the ones who don't, the ones who will stay and the ones who will leave. And maybe a happy ending doesn't include a guy, maybe... it's you, on your own, picking up the pieces and starting over, freeing yourself up for something better in the future. Maybe the happy ending is... just... moving on. Or maybe the happy ending is this, knowing after all the unreturned phone calls, broken-hearts, through the blunders and misread signals, through all the pain and embarrassment you never gave up hope."
I love Gigi in this movie. I relate to her so well...I put myself out there because I do care, because I have hope. I never give up in hope. I dissect things, I put myself out there, I make an ass out of myself, but like Gigi I'm a lot closer to finding love than someone. Today was awful, in a sense of dealing with a situation. All I can do is pray... I just hate when someone doesn't care, and doesn't care about my feelings. It breaks my heart. Gigi's character is awesome, and eventually becomes someone's exception...I hope that's me one day.
