  • Playing: with my own heart and mind
Charlie: On the reasons to stop seeing her side we have: One, on going physical danger. Two, high likely-hood of a broken heart. Three, uh career sabotage. Four, she is clinically insane. Five, she seems to enjoy my pain. Six, fourteen piece matched set of Louis Vuitton emotional baggage. Seven, I haven't even kissed her yet, for God's sakes. Uh eight, she's ruining my life.
Leo: And the reasons to keep seeing her?
Charlie: I'm in love with her.


That was quotation from a film I accidentally watched in late night, entitled 'My Sassy Girl' (adapted from Korean film with same name). FYI, I don't usually watch films with such genre, but it can't be helped when I kind of experienced what depicted in the story myself. Lol.

"Blind love", one might say, seeing how Charlie's taking of the risks he may face if he keeps seeing the girl he loves. I guess that shows what some people consider as irrationality (besides mysticism and transcendental stuffs) lies on people's mind (or heart). :lol: I mean, what is the point to keep being with girl who seems not to care about you; selfish, self-centered, and especially when she seems to ruin your life? That is clearly irrational.

But, to some, the so-called blind love is not considered as irrationality, but instead a rational sacrifice to gain other means -- that is, that certain person's heart. One might consider that as wishful thinking, but at least that 'thinking' is not without 'trying'.

Anyway, in the film, Charlie got the ending he has always wanted -- to actually be with the girl he loves. He deserved that after he has gone through much sacrifices. Yet in real life things can't always be as good as depicted in films. Nevertheless, there is nothing we can do but progress. Because we have to see how the story ends.

...whatever. I praise anyone who actually cares to read this wall of text. :D

Been there, feel it already.

Somehow, I think what Charlie do in that film aren't irrational at all. When you're in love with someone, you just feel like you won't give up no matter what. Even half-dying is cheap to get the love of the one you love :D

Aha, exactly. :D
While some people judge such actions are irrational / illogical, to some others those are instead necessary. Kind of rational consequences / sacrifices to gain the means... it is not illogical; that is how the logical premises apply. :P

Yes, I agree that 'half-dying is cheap to get the love of the one you love'. :D

The say love that is only sweet isn't true love at all. That kind of love often last for but a short time :(

Yes, narrow minded are those that think you don't need sacrifice in love.
Having to make many sacrifices, enduring harsh times to obtain the love of your loved one... Now that kind of hardship are what makes the love of a couple true, strong and everlasting :)

Glad I'm not the only one that thinks that way :D

I definitely agree. Just as one motto said, no pain no gain. :D

Aha, great minds think alike? :P

Ha, maybe so. Or maybe also because both of us have already felt what it's like to be wounded by love? :D

Well, because I've never seen that I can't judge whether this Charlie guy is really in love or just infatuated with the girl (but I guess since they ended up together at least it's mutual?).

I think love can cause people to do things which others see as irrational but when it becomes complete and utter devotion towards a loved one who treats the person badly, I'd consider it a pretty bad (and stupid) infatuation.

... Not to say that infatuation can't turn into love, but you get me, don't you? =p

Do watch. :D Well I don't know if this film is really good or not but I feel it's not really bad.

I know. When it is not mutual, it is a bad infatuation. But sometimes it can't be helped... there is always a 'wishful thinking' that the girl would turn her face upon him... (what kind of idiom is this?!)

Yes, but there's also a limit to being hopeful... If one gets hope out of nothingness or start exaggerating the so-called things that ignite their flame of hope, I'd still think it's stupidity :D

Unless she starts playing a part as well soon, I'd say that you are beginning to fall into the pit of stupidity lolz
