Ok, so that's not true, but I'm watching As Good As It Gets right now, and I thought it sounded cool, so that's what I wrote. I freaking LOVE this movie. My girl Courtenay can attest to that. I watched it on repeat for about three months straight during my senior year of college. Anyway, the movie is almost over, and it's almost at the infamous "You make me want to be a better man" scene. When I saw the movie for the first time over 10 years ago, I thought that line was totally Velveeta.
However, now, I totally get what Jack Nicholson was saying, and I think it's very important to feel that way about your partner. In past relationships, I played the role of the savior, and always put my energy towards trying to fix and mend someone else. With my current boyfriend though, the only person I'm trying to "fix" is me. He drives me to be the best I can be, which is the main reason why I'm writing my third blog post of the day and researching some business ideas he's been encouraging me to look into, instead of doing what I really want to do, which is absolutely nothing.
I don't know why this is really. I guess when your partner is working hard, doing neat things and thinking outside of the box, it's easy to get inspired. We're a team, and I'd like to think I have the same effect on him, too.
So what do you think: How important is it for your partner to make you want to be a better person? And what's your favorite line in As Good As It Gets?? C'mon, I know you have one!
