I really love He’s Just Not That Into You. I think it’s the perfect hopeful movie about finding love, or love finding you.
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.
The final quote of the movie encapsulated the only shining beacon of hope I hold on to. There are just so many things going on in this world. There are a lot of good and bad things. And, there are billions of people moving, deciding… and living independently. For sure, there is someone who you can love, and love you back. You just do not give up and continuously be open to the experience, and the signs.
