Here’s an excerpt of the conversation in the movie “Juno”:
Juno MacGuff: I’m losing my faith in humanity.
Mac MacGuff: Think you can narrow it down for me?
Juno MacGuff: I guess I wonder sometimes if people ever stay together for good.
Mac MacGuff: You mean like couples?
Juno MacGuff: Yeah, like people in love.
Mac MacGuff: Are you having boy troubles? I gotta be honest; I don’t much approve of dating in your condition, ’cause well… that’s kind of messed up.
Juno MacGuff: Dad, no!
Mac MacGuff: Well, it’s kind of skanky. Isn’t that what you girls call it? Skanky? Skeevy?
Juno MacGuff: Please stop.
Mac MacGuff: [persisting] Tore up from the floor up?
Juno MacGuff: Dad, it’s not about that. I just need to know if it’s possible for two people to stay happy together forever, or at least for a few years.
Mac MacGuff: It’s not easy, that’s for sure. Now, I may not have the best track record in the world, but I have been with your stepmother for 10 years now and I’m proud to say that we’re very happy.
Mac MacGuff: In my opinion, the best thing you can do is find a person who loves you for exactly what you are. Good mood, bad mood, ugly, pretty, handsome, what have you, the right person will still think the sun shines out your ass. That’s the kind of person that’s worth sticking with.
Have you found that person? =)
I remember chatting with someone before, she was talking about how she and this guy has some kind of special thing going on between them.
And so somehow in the middle of the conversation I typed in:
“Mahal mo na ba? ( Are you in love with him?)”
Never really got a straight answer, could only think of three possible reasons;
- she was shy about admitting it…
- she was not sure of how she felt…
- maybe she was afraid… afraid of admitting it.
or she doesn’t trust me enough…hehehe
Anyway, can’t blame her. It’s a kind of question that would usually be hard to answer.
If you were fortunate enough to find such a person that was described in the excerpt then you’ll be the envy of every single people out there who’s still ssearching. Congrats.
