Crazy, Stupid, Love.

I met my soulmate when I was fifteen years old. Our first date, we went for ice cream. After, my dad started teasing me about my ‘first date’ the way dads do. And I told him: ‘stop making a big deal, Dad. I’m going to go on lots of dates with plenty of girls.’ That was the first time I ever lied to my father. I met my soulmate when I was fifteen years old. And I have loved her with everything I have for every minute, of every day, ever since she let me buy her that first mint chip ice cream. I have loved her through the birth of our three perfect children, and I have loved her even as I’ve hated her — only married couples can truly understand that one. And I don’t know what will wind up happening with us, but I promise you this: I will never stop trying. When you find `the one’ you never give up trying… 

I watched Crazy, Stupid, Love. earlier this week and absolutely adored it. Why didn’t you guys insist I watch this sooner? It’s rare that I cry in movies but my oh my how I teared up at these lines. So heartfelt, and so true. If you haven’t seen this movie yet, you need to watch it, stat!

    I totally loved that movie too; watched it twice! I met my soulmate when I was 17. Thank God for soulmates, he is my hubby now for over 15 years.

    I loved it and so my husband. It was hilarious, the poor guy tried to deny it and finally confessed he adored the whole flick.

    I’ve watched this twice in a row. It was THAT good! I bought the movie shortly after and I’ve been wanting to watch it a 3rd time.

    I laughed and cried so hard during that movie.

  19. 12.8.11

    Okay, I need to watch it. A few others keep reffing it and I just might have to budge. I’m not a movie person. I took up all my movie time by watching Clueless countless times.

    I really, really liked Crazy, Stupid Love. I watched it with my mom and my sister, and it was the perfect girls movie. The whole fight scene had as laughing so loudly, too.
