I’m a sucker for love stories and romantic comedies and just romantic moments and gestures and boys.
The best is watching movies where the characters fall in love for the first time. Especially an honest story, where it’s not too messy because they aren’t both in relationships and its super complicated but just like the perfect amount of suspense on whether it will work out or not. Those are wonderful. The first love where the girl is a little messed up or insecure, just enough that the guy is perfect for her and fills every flaw with his better half.
I always think about if that would happen in my life, or did happen. I would never know. I would never know how much he cared if he doesn’t say it when we are together. I will never know whether he thought about texting or calling or how many times he thought about it. Did he ever gush to his friends about me? Were his palms sweaty when we talked? Did he start caring more about how wrinkled his shirt was or how his hair looked before he walked out of the house in the morning?
But isn’t not knowing half of the fun? Besides I definitely don’t want to know all of my specific flaws. That could be embarrassing enough for me not keep trying to get to know him. The amount of time it takes for the girls flaws to stand out in love stories is ridiculously quick. I’m not sure if I could handle the pressure.
One thing I do know is that I will always love romantic movies. They will always make my heart melt and I am not complaining.
Oh. Quick fun fact of the day that I learned tonight was that kissing strengthens the immune system and makes people happier in general. It also cleans teeth, so there’s a bonus.
