“I feel men are more romantic than women. When we get married we marry this one girl because we resisted the whole way. You think you must be an idiot if you don’t marry this one particular girl, right? Because she’s so great. It seems as if girls just decide to pick the best option or something. They spend their whole life looking for prince charming and then they marry the guy who’s got a good job and is gonna stick around.” – Ryan Gosling, during press from Blue Valentine
Oh Ryan Gosling. What exactly are the fellas resisting? Resisting telling the truth? Resisting being honest to girls when they are playing them? Resisting not sleeping with any and every easy girl that bats her lashes? Did you ever think that perhaps us ladies give up, because we’re tired of seeing guys run from girl to girl? Of course we give up, or give in. While you’re running around thinking you’re romantic, our hopes just keep getting dashed, until all we can do is count on the one we have lukewarm feelings for, the one who probably doesn’t make anything tingle or know the real us. The one who didn’t fall into every vagina along the way. Maybe that’s all a nice girl can hope for anymore.
