I am in my mid-30’s. I am single. I am a woman. (Oppsss, did I just give that way too easily?) And I am a sucker for romance. Dont get me wrong, I dont read romance novels anymore, nor I only watch romantic comedies or weepy love stories, but when it really matters, like most women, I love a good romance.

Recently when I was feeling so down in the dumps, I decided to revisit my DVD collection and watched one of my all time favorite romantic comedy, “Moonstruck”. The other rom-com that shares the same honor is the mother of all romantic comedies, “When Harry Met Sally”, anyway, this blog entry will be about “Moonstruck”. If you have seen this gem of a film, I bet that your favorite scene and line were those spoken between Nicholas Cage (Ronnie) and Cher (Loretta), remember this immortal lines?

“Loretta, I love you, not like they told you love is, and I didn’t know this either, but love don’t make things nice – it ruins everything. It breaks your heart. It makes things a mess. We aren’t here to make things perfect. The snowflakes are perfect. The stars are perfect. Not us. Not us! We are here to ruin ourselves and to break our hearts and love the wrong people and die.”

And Puccini playing in the background is just too much for one heart. I just love this film. I just love being in love.
