The other day I told my boyfriend that I felt like the only topic of conversation between us lately has been work-related things (ironically, it's hard not to talk work about when you don't have a job), and I was just bummed about it. To make matters worse, The Notebook was on TV later that night, and I started wondering if love like that really existed?
I love when Noah is like, "I want all of you forever, you and me, every day." That part never gets old. But then he also says, "It's not going to be easy. It's going to be really hard. We're going to have to work at this every day, but I want to do that because I want you." Ugh, I die. At least there is some reality mixed into this fairy tale romance.
Don't get me wrong, the spark in my relationship is still very much a burnin' after almost four years, but I'm realizing more and more that yes, it does take work. Some things aren't as effortless as they used to be, but other things have gotten better through time and being truly comfortable with one another.
Now, will my boyfriend and I ever make out in the rain? Probably not—I fucking hate the rain. But that doesn't mean that what we have isn't really special, and that's something I need to remember.
So tell me: Do you believe in The Notebook kind of love? I believe in parts of it—you know, soulmates and all that jazz. And WHO is going to see Dear John next weekend?! Channing, it's been so long since we've talked! Call me. XOXO
