I’m going to go home tonight and watch When Harry Met Sally and cry into a tub of ice cream, and live out my own Nora Ephron romcom, and feel sad about how there are no more great romantic comedies anymore, but grateful for the woman that made them.
“You know what? If everything’s going bad, we’re going bad as well.”
And you know what’s so good about the truth? Everyone knows what it is, no matter how long they’ve lived without it.
“Things Wong Kar Wai taught me about love”
1. You will fall in love only once. Obstacles will prevail. The rest of your life is spent recovering.
2. Anything that distracts you from the pain of your loss is good. Some people are more successful in this regard than others.
3. Eroticising their objects will be the pinnacle of your sexual fulfillment.
4. Desire is kept eternally alive by the impossibility of contact.
5. The most potent way to exist is to occupy someone else’s imagination.
6. Technology will only heighten your sense of desolation making you more keenly aware that no one is trying to call.
7. Hook up with someone. Live with them. Sleep with them. Tag along. Don’t be fooled. You are only a transitory distraction. Ask for commitment. Declare your love. Watch the set up evaporate.
8. Some coincidences are deliberate.
