Is a great movie. And is what inspired me to blog a little…
So in this movie, this guy is getting married, and he has like absolutely no friends. And his fiancée feels bad, because she has so many friends she can go and hang out with, and what not, and if she does, then he’s left at home by himself. He is so committed to just being happy and content with his fiancée being his WHOLE world, that he’s never realized he doesn’t have any friends. Anyone to share time with, go out with, nothing. So this guy tries to get his brother to find him some friends, then he tries looking online to no avail. They all turn out to be weirdos, and one of them is actually gay, and tries to hook up with the guy.
This movie really kind of made me depressed a little. Because I’m going through the exact same things this guy is going through. I have no friends. No one I call, no one I text. I don’t hang out with anyone, or go to the movies, or anywhere. I am engaged to be married, and while my fiancée is going to have 50 friends at the wedding, INCLUDING a Best Man, I’m not going to have a SINGLE Bridesmaid, must less a Maid of Honor. My fiancée gets invited to guys night at Applebee’s, Wrestlemania, Super Bowl Parties, Guys Bowling Nights, and this has all happened in THE LAST MONTH (Honest to God). His friends invite him to do and go everywhere. Meanwhile, I am at home, by myself, because I have no one to go hang out with, and so then Aaron feels bad, and feels obligated not to go. I have tried finding friends. Mostly from Craigslist. One girl I wrote back, and she ignored my message and never talked to me. Another girl got the wrong intentions and thought I wanted a “girlfriend”, if you know what I mean. The other girl seemed really awesome, and we hung out at the mall, and then her house once, and then I never heard from her again, not a IM, a E-Mail, a text, anything. I know why too. I was so awkward the day we met, I had nothing to talk about, and she was probably weirded out by me. I was SOOO nervous. I didn’t have anything interesting to say, and I came off as really boring and dull. The only thing I can really talk about is the internet, and gaming, neither two things she did.
Well, in the end of the movie, the guy finds a friend in an unlikely place, they hit it off SO well, and even though the guy is TOTALLY awkward with his new friend because he’s not used to being around another person, or hanging out, the new friend stuck with him, and just laughed and shrugged it off when the guy made a fool of himself because he was nervous. They ended up being Best Friends, and hanging out and going places every day. Then the guy ends up being his Best Man at his wedding. Anyway, it just makes me depressed. I want to find someone like that. That will stick with me, and get to know me, no matter how awkward I’m going to be because I’m so nervous or shy. To like me for who I am, and genuinely want to spend time with me, and go out and do things with me on a regular basis. I wish I could find my Sydney. (The name of the new friend in the movie).
Okay, I’m done with my emo moment. :(
