>>119997131 Pretty much, they moved "far" away, which in Japan means not far away at all because it's a country the size of California. I think the point is though people grow apart when not near each other.
>>119997648 Because he was a moron who had given up from the start. If he had tried, the relationship might have worked. But he never tried and all he did was act like a creep for her with the stupid text message shit (kinda like Goto). All the movie proves is that Japanese men have no backbone.
>>119997477 >me and guy have obvious feelings for each other >both awkward as fuck >confident guy approaches me >still want awkward guy >confident guy is everything I wanted >still want awkward guy >awkward guy becomes so awkward he starts ignoring me >cry because I can't deal with love triangles >this is nothing like my shoujo manga
>>119997477 It's been three years. Of course I'm not over it I was going to marry her. I didn't even go to her funeral. I'm going to murder that drunk driver /a/ I swear to fucking god. I've been planning it since I hear the news. I will get away with it.
>>119997954 At first I didn't know who he was, but he approached me first. We've been texting for over a year and have made plenty of implications. He blushes just sitting near me, our legs accidentally touch under the table. We're just full of missed opportunities.
>everyone tells me how I should choose confident guy, because he's better-looking and not a beta faggot >still want awkward guy >awkward guy is still awkwardly avoiding me the more obvious it gets that he has feelings for me >confident guy keeps approaching me >start hanging out with confident guy >cry all week because I think I'm developing feelings for confident guy >awkward guy is the one that got a way
>>119998029 Gotta agree with his dude. You probably love the "her" in your head rather than the real her. I mean really even if she compulsively used social media to blog about her life the picture paint by that still isn't her
>>119998299 When this sort of stuff happens you hold onto hope that the other person still longs for you, but you fear that trying to contact them yourself will result in your worst fears, that the other person doesn't have feelings for you anymore and that time has pushed you two apart too much. So you cling to hope that the other person will be the one to contact you.
1- Her future husband was at the right place at the right time (Or is Alpha). Don't know exactly how because the film doesn't show him 2- MC is Beta pussy. Didn't even have the guts to be rejected like a man. Beta's doesn't have any sympathy from me, period.
>>119997477 >be 18 >still a horny faggot >tell random girl from other class "hey from now on your my gf" >o-ok >vacation happened >"hey I love you" everyday on fb >school resumes >lunch >"hey wanna go out on a date?" everyday >o-ok (oh shit she's getting clingy) >ignores her advances on me the next day >she went full madman on me in fb everyday since ignoring her in school >graduation >she broke up with me Thanks for reading my blog! yandere esque kind of girls in real life is bad news kids
For those that require explanation: The last chapter is a story about his other childhood friend who is also unable to move on. She sort of does. She even considers a marriage proposal. But she decides to go to Tokyo one last time. As she sits in a park alone, contemplating her past with MC and her need to let go, someone walks into her field of view
We as an audience, are encouraged to think it's MC, who just gave up on her on >>119996505 .
What happens next? We don't know. But we can hope for something good to come from this.
>>119998796 I did everything I could really, I even went to the Prof to have us be in the same group for a group project, maybe that was just too subtle on my part. I was loyal to him the whole 6 months when I was away to foreign countries with tons of guys hitting on me. I asked him to hang out with me, but he was busy. ;_;
>>119997477 >Fall in love with 10/10 qt girl. >She has some minimum powerlevel requirement. >Spend lot of time talking together. >Discover that she has a boyfriend and is simply the "nice girl" type so everything I got from her until now didn't mean that she saw me that way.
This happened two fucking times. Worst feeling ever. Doesn't matter if I become a wizard at this point, Im too tired for this shit.
Thinking about it, I was probably infatuated because I was still awkward around girls, now Im much more comfortable and everything is alright.
>Get a crush on a 7/10 qt girl >She likes reading, has crazy sexhair and is pure as anything >She's a bit of a feminist but nothing serious >Hope for more chance encounters but we don't share classes, social circles or anything like that >Spend more time drinking, watching anime and playing games >Get drunk sometimes and then argue with her about feminism >Don't think she returns any of my feelings so resign myself to giving up >She bakes me a cake on my birthday, randomly hugs me all the time, approaches me looking all hopeful whenever I'm alone - I notice none of it >One time she even jumped on me calling my name and I hugged her back so hard that the spaghetti falls and she hurts her back >I don't do anything else about it all year and she goes for a year abroad >I eventually leave to return home
That was two years ago, I'm now a NEET living in my parent's attic
It's an extra chapter that deals with MC's middle school friend who had her unrequited love for him. It's set 10 years later from the time they parted ways and like the MC, she is also stuck in time, unable to move on. Without spoiling it, she finally confronts her feelings head on and decides to do something about it only to find resolution to her inner turmoil just short of seeing MC. And then we're supposed to believe she DOES see him. It's an ambiguous ending that makes you hope something good is in store for both of them, now that they are finally at peace with their past.
I would call it a side-story than an epilogue. This is Kanae's story, not the MCs.
>>119997016 I kinda like that literally nothing happened. The thing that glued it together was the montage at the end and the train passing.
But really, it should be obvious that there actually is something happening.
>>119997176 Some people don't move on in life. He clinged to a promise that would never work until it broke him. In the manga, he dates the surfer girl.
Really, the movie was really well done. First part shows the couple going to near impossible length just to be together for a bit and knowing it will never last. Making the viewer understand how long and shit it is by not skipping to when they get together.
Then it shows the surfer girl who grows affectionate towards the guy but he doesn't notice since he's still living in the past, unable to see what is around him.
And then he breaks and the final scene is the girl he loved passing where they used to meet. It's well symbolised since when the train passes, it cuts off the relationship he held with her. Which is why he is happy. This is also why she vanishes./
I honestly don't see how anyone can hate this movie.
>>119999650 >First part shows the couple going to near impossible length just to be together for a bit and knowing it will never last. Making the viewer understand how long and shit it is by not skipping to when they get together. That's what breaks this movie for me. Why is it so impossible? I've never been in a relationship myself, but I've known people who've been in steady relationships even across different countries. If this was some kind of period piece set when there was no modern technology, I could understand.
>>119999711 Dude, people break up all the time due to many circumstances, the least of them being falling out of love. It's a fact of life. How we deal with those unresolved feelings and move on with out own lives is what makes better for it.
>>119999785 I understand that. But I'm talking about the situation before they actually broke up. It's as if they had given up before they even began. They made no attempts to at least keep in contact.
I still like this movie. But this bothers me quite a bit.
>>119999921 Again, this happens an awful lot, especially when you're young and partially dependent on others. We as an audience can see how much they meant to each other, long after they had separated. But the reality is that once they drifted apart, they were completely unable to verify the feelings of each other and as time went on, the less chance of them going back together; life gets in the way. Not everyone is keen on licking an open wound either. WHy torture yourself knowing someone that means SO much to you is so far away as to be wholly out of reach? That's just torture, not romance. But if you are going to drift apart, you have to be ready to move on as well. But neither one did for a very, very long time.
I've seen this happen many times. There is one guy at the office who is still pining about his first girlfriend 16 YEARS after they last met. He still maintains he's not ready to see other people yet. This shit happens all the time.
If you don't, then you're supposing it's easy, it is not. The couple need to have a great deal of perseverance to go thought a long distance relationship. (Both of them, not just one)
It can happen many variables in the process when the couple it not actively seeing each other on a regular basis. Most common are:
-They'll meet new people (Some, that can mess with the relationship) -They'll grow older apart (This is more of a big deal then people think) -The relationship will grow cold (No direct contact, just phones or skype)
If you move from one state (Or province) to another is already a big deal. Countries is already big enough of a problem. I'm not saying is impossible, but it's pretty difficult.
As people from /fit/ say. If you're not there, banging your girl/guy at least 1-3 times a week. The potential of break up/cheating grows.
>>119996505 >tfw I have never been in a relationship and have never once been in the concept of "love" >tfw I could not relate to this movie because I don't know of love. I have fantasied about it being with someone but my mind jumps between multiple things in a short space of time. Love, family, perfect job, friends and then back to wanting to be alone to do my own thing. I can't into love because I don't know it. How can I relate to something that I have no prior knowledge of? What is love?
>>120000381 Because for some people, it's not that easy. They didn't fall out of love or broke up; life just got in the way. And neither one could settle or reconcile those feelings anymore. The problem there, as I see it, is that they drifted apart without emotionally ending it in their hearts. Those lingering emotions were not overridden by stronger and newer feelings of affection toward someone new. For some people they can't just switch off those emotions instantly.
I guess it's hard to make for an anime board full of virgins who have never been in a relationship with a woman to empathize with a hard case of unrequited love, but jesus christ at least try.
why didnt he fuck delicious brown?!? why did he still care about the first girl? Help I'm an infant child who has never had any relationships with people and im struggling to understand a story about relationships!
>>120000552 >I have no problem cutting off all contacts with former friends, family and even crushes. >Routinely keeping people at arms length while feeding them lies and half truths as I slowly get to know them and their intentions >tfw the day I cut them off comes as a huge relief because everything that I had said to them prior won't matter because it was all false information and the person they thought they knew was actually not real. >tfw I have done this so many times that I have had to pen down the names, addresses and contact details of every single one so I can learn their patterns and avoid them in the near future. Its not that hard anon sure if you invest yourself in another it will be hard to cut off contact. You feed them false info and it won't hurt as much when you have to break the chains that bind you to them.
>>120000718 >who have never been in a relationship with a woman >a hard case of unrequited love Why would these two be mutually exclusive? If anything, the latter actively gets in the way of the former.
>>119997477 I fucked up my first love by over-rationalizing when my gf asked me a serious question.
She asked 'what do you like about me?' and I couldn't answer. I tried to think of a good answer but had nothing. She gave me shit because she said anyone should easily answer that and I couldn't think of anything. I told her I'd give her a good answer by the next day and tried to think of something good to tell her.
I thought about it later that night and came to the conclusion that I didn't know why I loved her or even liked her. That made me think that the only thing that I liked about her was that she made me happy. And that meant that I was happy that she was with me. But I twisted that and saw it as thought I only liked her because she was with me. She loved me and I like that she loved me. I loved that she loved me more than I actually loved her since I couldn't figure out why I even liked her. And the only thing I loved was that she payed attention to me, would there be a difference between her paying attention to me compared to some girl X who would do the same? Could I see a difference? I didn't see any. I mean, if it wasn't her but some other girl, how can it be love if it wasn't sacred? How can I say I love her if I don't know why and can easily say I can love someone else so long as they love me in return? As if that was all that mattered.
I concluded that love was selfish and that I didn't actually love her, only that she loved me and that I loved that she was mine. And I couldn't handle that it wasn't this magical naive idealistic idea of love that I had when I thought I was in love.
Told her the next day that I wanted to break up and got shit from her because I didn't know how to explain myself.
Looking back on it, I feel like a fucking idiot and wish I could slap myself. If it wasn't retarded, it might have turned into something else, who knows.
>>120000728 At the risk of blogging (and let's face it - we all pretty much are at this point), then you haven't experienced love at its utmost. Loving someone is accepting them so fully that you make yourself completely vulnerable to them. There is no part of you that quarantines itself from that emotion. That's why it hurts so bad when it ends in a bad note and why people are unable to move on.
>>120000728 >tfw you lie so much that the lies become truth and the truth becomes lies. >tfw you just can't tell the difference between the two anymore because you have done it for so long. Its a blessing and a curse.
The MC at that point IS a virgin who had never been in a true relationship and therefore mourns after his first childhood love. If anything moving on and banging the hot brown chick would be the normalfag solution.
>>120000829 >Loving someone is accepting them so fully that you make yourself completely vulnerable to them Well there in lies your problems. You invest yourself fully in another and blows up you lose all that in the process. Feed them lies and fabrications and the effects lessen. You can still love them for who they are to certain extend but they will love you for you tell them. In a way you retain full control over your past, present and future and nothing can backfire if you have taken the necessary precautions. Opening yourself fully to another person is dangerous and you are just asking to be exploited if you choose to do so. A good lie is better then a bad truth, honesty is never the best policy.
>last day of our final year of grad school >about to drive two of my friends home after their Desginated driver got wasted >my female friend is behind me and tries to embrace me from behind >Took a step forward to put on my shoes and accidentally dodge her hug
She never really spoke to me much again after that day. Didn't even know about it until months later when the other friend I drove home brought it up randomly and said I was such a heart breaker
>>120000941 I fully accept your opinion anon and I can see where you're coming from. Still, I maintain you have not yet experienced love at its utmost and even though it can hurt so bad when it goes to shit, the opposite is also absolutely and undeniably true - nothing you've experienced can ever compare to meeting someone that accepts you so completely for who you really are and open him/herself to you in the same way. There is really no approximation to it.
>>119997477 26 years old. I have s job and a car, don't live with my parents, shower daily, have a nice haircut and my clothes aren't bad either. A still unkissed virgin. I wasn't like that until like 22 though and at that point the concept of a relationship just got too weird. I even go to the gym 3-4 times per week and had 2 girls after me at work but I turned both of them down. Another girl texted me on New Years eve that I don't even know but I didn't even reply. I will forever stay alone at this point. Every year the concept of a relationship just gets weirder.
>>120001034 Must be a nice world that you live in. People do not accept you for what you are but what you can offer to them. The world is a place of winners and losers no inbetweens. You don't accept someone for what they are on the basis of because you can. You conduct yourself in such away you will be exploited sooner or later. I am surprised people like you still exist in this world.
>>120001153 I'm not saying it works for the best all the time or even most of the time; you strike out and get hurt more often than not. That's just how it is. But even so, you still do it and you go out there and find someone new and if it feels right, you open up and see where it goes. Because that chance of finding someone who can accept you for who you are at that point in time (not talking about the future; that's a different story) is a unique and irreplaceable experience. For what its worth, I've chased that feeling for almost 12 years before I found it again. You have to be in the right frame of mind to accept it however.
>>120001366 You might never be sad, but at the same time, you're never really happy either. You're only experiencing a very limited spectrum of emotions, all muted. If you can live with that, then that's up to you. Problem is that you're not always in control of your own emotions. There will come a time that it will hit you and it will shake you to your foundations and make you reevaluate the way you've been living thus far and realise that you're only half-living if you stay the way you had been.
