I just watched the movie "Juno". Very good movie. I really liked it and I would like to think that there is that sort of love existent in the real world and not just on the silver screen. What Juno's dad was telling her about being with someone who loves you for you no matter if you are looking good or bad and when you are nice or being intolerable and during the best or worst of times, that is the truth. I guess I question my own definition of true love at times. It is hard to find a person who you can connect with at many different levels, there are times when you think you have that but end up losing it after a few weeks. I know I've met girls who I was really into and then after getting to know them more and more you see a different side of them and it makes you question whether she is someone you could build a relationship with. When Juno was telling Bleeker how whenever she saw him her heart would start beating fast, that is the feeling I would like to be experiencing. I had that feeling not too long ago and I loved it but unfortunately she did not get that same feeling for me.
I have never been much of a "dater", I have mostly liked being in something stable and it's been close to two years since I last had a girlfriend. I have dated here and there, and I have not liked what I've encountered. I've had my run-ins with girls who like to throw the word "love" around too easily like there is no tomorrow. I have also dated girls who forgot to mention they were currently in a serious relationship with another guy, who then ended up being irate when finding out that his "girlfriend" had been getting the "business" from me.
I know true love is not something that is easy to find, I also know that it takes work to develop it. What I don't know is if it truly exists, if it can actually be had by actual people rather than just by fictional characters in a well written screenplay. Maybe I will experience it tomorrow, maybe 3 years from, who knows, just as long as I get to experience it one day is all I can ask for.
You're a part time lover and a full time friend The monkey on you're back is the latest trend I don't see what anyone can see, in anyone else But you
Here is the church and here is the steeple We sure are cute for two ugly people I don't see what anyone can see, in anyone else But you
We both have shiny happy fits of rage You want more fans, I want more stage I don't see what anyone can see, in anyone else But you
You are always trying to keep it real I'm in love with how you feel I don't see what anyone can see, in anyone else But you
I kiss you on the brain in the shadow of a train I kiss you all starry eyed, my body's swinging from side to side I don't see what anyone can see, in anyone else But you
The pebbles forgive me, the trees forgive me So why can't, you forgive me? I don't see what anyone can see, in anyone else But you
Du du du du du du dudu Du du du du du du dudu Du du du du du du dudu du I don't see what anyone can see, in anyone else But you
