he's just not that into you

i may dissect each little thing and put myself out there so much but at least that means that i still care... i may do a lot of stupid shit but i'm still a lot closer to love than you are - ginnifer goodwin as gigi.

angdaming pangit na reviews sa movie na he's just not that into you but i don't care... i loved the movie. kinilig ako. natuwa. natawa. naiyak. most of all, this movie gave me hope...

the movie's plot is simple. if you've read the book, you will have an idea what the movie is all about. several people sent me the content of this book via email in 2006. isa dun sa nagpadala sa akin, si claring, na inemail sa mismong araw na i was waiting for a sign for something. the book made me realize the guy i was seeing that time was just not that into me but nagpakatanga ako. i thought i was an exception. pero hindi. i was the rule. para akong si gigi sa movie...

kaya siguro nagustuhan ko ang movie. kasi naka-relate ako. mas nagustuhan ko ito kesa sa shopaholic.

"girls are taught a lot of stuff growing up: if a boy punches you he likes you, never try to trim your own bangs, and someday you will meet a wonderful guy and get your very own happy ending.

every movie we see, every story we're told implores us to wait for it: the third act twist, the unexpected declaration of love, the exception to the rule.

but sometimes we're so focused on finding our happy ending we don't learn how to read the signs. how to tell the ones who want us from 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 and broken-hearts, through the blunders and misread signals, through all the pain and embarrassment... you never gave up hope."
