Hopper and Weir’s “relationship” was like playing a videogame with God Mode enabled; it’s fun at first, but there’s no thrill and no challenge.You know exactly what’s going to happen and there’s no sense of risk to spice up that sense of discovery.There’s a scene in one of the trailers that has Ryan Gosling’s Sebastian walking down a pier and whistling, and at first I was like “oh wow, I should hang out at piers more often to meet guys like THAT,” and then I was like “oh no, that is a recipe for DISASTER.” That is only the beginning of my disdain with Sebastian claims he got by the security gate at Warner Bros. On top of that, considering many guys don’t want to drive 10 mins out of their way down The 5, it’s highly unlikely that someone will go out of their way to drive to a studio lot, and then break onto the studio lot. And, don’t even get me started on the non-existent coffee shop that Mia works at on the Warner Bros. From my extensive knowledge of the Warner Bros lot — and the layout of the set — this coffee shop was like, diagonal from Luke’s and next to Miss Patty’s, which Mia and Sebastian then walk by on their stroll around the lot. One of the best song and dance numbers happens during a stroll up to Griffith Observatory, which is completely deserted.
The one Sebastian takes Mia to literally looks like it’s off three our four different side roads, in the middle of a parking lot that used to belong to a K-Mart, which is now out of businesses and has been for 4 years and is currently overrun with raccoons. And also horribly bone chilling and the location of a few homicides!
If you live in LA, you know how fun it is to find street parking. [leaves] Even good friends of mine won’t walk me to my car if it’s like too far away, so Sebastian walking Mia to her car, all the way up Griffith, is ridiculous.
My alternate — and true — version of the and instantly fell in love with the movie (sorry), and also immediately hated it.
It was painting this picturesque landscape of love (and music) and I was buying its idea of love so hard, and also like WHAT THE F ARE YOU TRYING TO SELL ME ON, ? Even sometimes if you have a drive-on pass, the security guard still makes you wait there 15 mins while they call your contact to double check that you’ve actually got a meeting.
In fact, a little uncertainty can As anxiety-producing as the early days of dating can be, they’re actually some of the most pleasurable and exciting.
That feeling of unpredictability and risk – wondering if someone you’re flirting with is going to say “yes” to a date, whether she’ll call if you give her your number – is emotionally invested in the answer and a “no” is going to sting.
One of the things I like to do as a dating coach is to keep up with the latest research on relationships and dating.
So naturally, I like to read the latest studies coming from esteemed peer-reviewed journals such as, er. the title of a Chuck Tingle short-story – was an interesting experiment in social dynamics.
Little things start to fall by the wayside; you become less concerned with dressing to impress your partner, you quit bringing the little gifts and gestures that show you care just because.
