You Look Good In Love

As per usual, it's 244 in the morning and I just finished watching The Notebook..

.. for the 913821938th time. And yes, again I am drenched in my own tears. Everytime I watch this movie, I just can't help but wonder if I could be like that. If I could be so in love. If I could have someone love me just as Noah loved Allie. Just if. 

Noah: I am nothing special; just a common man with common thoughts, and I've led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten. But in one respect I have succeeded as gloriously as anyone who's ever lived: I've loved another with all my heart and soul; and to me, this has always been enough.

I want someone I have my disagreements with and fight over it only to make up the next 5 minutes. That's true love. The movie shows no signs of jealousy in both of them, and I find that they shouldn't be considering how much they loved each other. They have nothing to be insecure about. All they have for each other is love and with that, comes trust and loyalty.

Young Allie: You arrogant son of a bitch.
Young Noah: Would you just stay with me?

Young Allie: Stay with you? What for? Look at us, we're already fightin'
Young Noah: Well that's what we do, we fight... You tell me when I am being an arrogant son of a bitch and I tell you when you are a pain in the ass. Which you are, 99% of the time. I'm not afraid to hurt your feelings. You have like a 2 second rebound rate, then you're back doing the next pain-in-the-ass thing.
Young Allie: So what?
Young Noah: So it's not gonna be easy. It's gonna be really hard. We're gonna have to work at this every day, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, for ever, you and me, every day.
