Girls are taught a lot of stuff growing up. (1) If a guy punches you, he likes you, (2) never try to trim your own bangs, and (3) 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 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.
– He’s Just Not That Into You
I love this quote. Lumalabas tuloy romantic side ko. Haha! I blame movies and novels for my high expectations in love. At dahil nag-eexpect masyado, nadidisappoint tuloy. I may not have my fairy tale love story right now, but someday, I know, my prince charming, no. Scratch that. Someday, I know the right man will come along, and then we’re going to have the greatest love story. ♥
