Here’s another confession: There are certain moments in my life (usually a low point) when I turn to movies for advice. Weird? Maybe…But through the years, I’ve come to realize that there are certain movies that I seriously relate to and so whenever I’m going through something, I find myself popping these films in the DVD to help me deal with my dilemma or even just to uplift my spirits.
For instance this movie…
Whenever I have problems relating to love and relationships – guy relationships in particular i.e. dating, figuring out the age old question “Does he or does he not like me?” – you betcha I’m watching this movie. Just ask my cousin who normally has to deal with sitting through this movie with me even though I’ve seen it a hundred times!
Like Gigi in this movie, I wanna find love and there are times that I miss the signs – the signs that would tell me whether or not the guy is into me especially when I’m really into him! Yes, I wait around for a text message that may or may not come. I sometimes go to places I know he usually hangs out at for a chance – a “coincidental” chance of bumping into him.
Wise words from Alex that I repeat to myself over and over again whenever I feel bummed out because the guy I like doesn’t seem to want to be with me. These are great reminders for me seriously!
Alex: And the rule is if a guy doesn’t call you, he doesn’t wanna call you.
Alex: Trust me when I say that if a guy is treating you like he doesn’t give a shit, he genuinely doesn’t give a shit. No exceptions!
Alex: If a guy wants to see you, believe me he will see you. I once called 55 Lauren Bells until I got the right one.
Gigi: So I’m making out with this guy – PG stuff and then he mentions that he’s gonna be out of town so he’s gonna be out of touch…
Gigi: But maybe he is going out of town
Alex: To where? New Guinea? Where is he going that he’s gonna be out of touch?
Although aside from that part, the reason I super love this movie is because Gigi gets her happy ending with Alex! This always makes me go “Awwwww” *heart melting*
Alex: You are my exception…
