Hopelessly Romantic



I noticed that when I feel lonely, I tend to watch movies or j/k dramas that are "cheezy chick flick" type status.  In the end I am a total hopeless romantic.  Any little sweet gesture in a love story makes me feel happy.  I have seen two movie trailers recently that pretty much show the whole movie in the trailer, but I can't help but feel like I want to see them.  One is Letters to Juliet and the other is Leap Year.  Letters to Juliet stars Amanda Siegfried (Mean Girls, Mama Mia) where she moves to Verona, Italy with her boyfriend and goes to this wall where people write letters to Juliet (of the story Romeo and Juliet) asking her to help with their broken hearts.  There she finds a letter and decides to help the woman find the love that she didn't go after.  Together with her grandson (maybe caretaker...I'm not sure the relationship) the three of them go around Italy finding this "Lorenzo" and along the line it looks like Amada's character ends up falling in love with the guy and realizing that she doesn't feel the same about her boyfriend.  The trailer as a whole pretty much showed me the whole movie.  XD  But for some reason, I know it will make he happy in the end and I would want to see it.  :)

I'm a sucker for romantic movies...and pretty much any small gesture of love that a guy can give you.  I might have a tomboy type personality when it comes to my friends, but really, I love the sweet things that happens when you're in love.  I easily cry when it comes to things with elderly people in love,  especially in things like Up or Yellowcard's song "Dear Bobbie."  For those of you who have seen Up, I cannot help but cry EVERY time I see the opening scene and towards the end.  I don't want to spoil it for those who haven't seen it.  But no matter what your view on animated movies is, you MUST see this movie.  It has a heartfelt message that everyone can relate to.   To have someone to be in love with for the rest of your life, it is something that I want to find someday.  Life has a funny way of suprising you when it comes to things like this.  I am curious to see what it has in store for me.

Sorry for the little heartfelt post.  Like I said, when I'm feeling lonely I tend to think about this sort of thing more.  I wish the best to those of you with a loved one, and to those who don't...well there's a song you might remember that fits well with that.  There is also a quote from How I Met Your Mother.  Ted, the protagonist, is talking about how he's tired of waiting for the girl of his dreams.  The person he tells this to says to him.  "She's out there Ted.  And she's coming as fast as she can to you."  That quote also makes me happy and hopeful.  :)

Have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  Enjoy the time with family, friends, and loved ones.  :D
