Guys are saps, too

For that one girl at the right time, probably even more so.

“I feel like men are more romantic than women. When we get married we marry, like, one girl, ’cause we’re resistant the whole way until we meet one girl and we think, “I’d be an idiot if I didn’t marry this girl she’s so great.” But it seems like girls get to a place where they just kinda pick the best option… “Oh he’s got a good job.” I mean 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 as Dean, Blue Valentine

I was dying to see this, and though it is much more depressing than I’d expected and so incredibly heartbreaking, it is so real.
