Sleepless in Seattle Syndrome

I have a confession. I have officially been diagnosed with a horrible, crippling disease. They call in Sleepless in Seattle Syndrome. For those of you who have been completely deprived of this outstanding movie let me explain. Meg Ryan's character is completely enamored by the movie An Affair to Remember and wants desperately to be in love, the catch is she doesn't really want to be in love. Confusing I know, but there is this brilliant line where her best friend explains to her that she doesn't want to be in love, she wants to be in love in a movie. This my friends, is my problem.

Lately I will watch the sappiest love stories and I pine for someone to love, but then when the movie ends reality hits me and I remember that, wait, I do not want to be in a relationship today probably not tomorrow either. Curse you Hollywood for being so clever. You make love look so cozy, but I know better. At the same time though, sometimes the guys are really really cute. Can you say marry me Jack Dawson? Dang, someone better get me pills quick.


  1. no wonder everyone things girls are crazy,
    it's because people like nicholas sparks come along and let us know that we can't be happy with reality.
    you suck, chick-flick movies!
    yet i still love them...
