i dont feel that real love exists anymore

so i see all love stories as fairy tales meant only to give us idealistic mind sets

@Marina, @hearkat, @tiny I’d love to hear details if it’s not too personal…. I would love to hear a good love story and give Fallenangel a reason to give love another chance.

@ Trudacia – nice quote! “are you cold?” “no, just happy” I can’t hear “In Your Eyes” without thinking of that movie.

I had 14 people call me and tell me to see the film because they said I WAS Lloyd Dawbler. Kinda cool.

@ SuperMouse – Excellent choice!

I’m a sucker for Korean and Japanese dramas. My Girl, Coffee Prince, Hana Yori Dango… That’s where it’s at.

@Bri_L: I really never liked Say Anything except I loved the bit about selling.

@all: For a great movie love story I really liked Hi Fidelity. The book was great, too.

For TV, Rose and the Doctor, Buffy and Angel, then Spike and Drucilla—each for very very different reasons.

Of course, I like my own story most of all.

@ cyndyh Hi Fidelity was good to

@aneedle – NO WAY. Katara and Zuko should have been together.

Ours seemed at first unlikely. We were work friends. I was not looking for anything serious and neither was he. We were dating casually, but we felt so comfortable with each other, and we enjoyed each other’s company so much that we fell in love.

There was an office pool on how long our marriage would last. The longest bet was five years. I think we won, though, since it has been 25 years!

Fiction: Roland and Susan. Stephen King The Dark Tower 4 Wizard and Glass.

Scarlett and Rhett
Harry and Sally
Annie and Alvy
Elizabeth and Darcy
Gatsby and Daisy

note that several of those don’t end particularly well

sdeutsch's avatar

Definitely The Princess Bride. And mine too, of course! =)

cyndyh's avatar

@ljs22: Re: things not ending well. I was tempted to say Sid and Nancy, but I didn’t because that didn’t end particularly well either.

House and Wilson. :D

Also, Susan’s in Terry Pratchett’s the Thief of Time. It is relatively understated, but absolutely amazing.

Other than that, I started listing them but it turns out I just really, really like romances so in the interest of keeping it short I’ll leave it at that.
