Today, my girlfriend asked me if I loved her. I tried to be cute and romantic and responded with a quote from the Notebook, which I watched with her yesterday. After I said, "If you're a bird, I'm a bird," she broke up with me because I was "phony and unoriginal." FML

I agree. She should be touched that you share the same feelings. Would she say you're copying her lines if you simply said "I love you" back? You deserve better because apparently she needs William Shakespeare himself to say he loves her in a romantic way.

True that. Just because you can photograph something that already exists doesn't mean photography isn't art. Finding the right passage of a poem (or film) can be as romantic as writing it yourself.

This is the shit that pisses me off. Some people around here are so snarky and judgmental when it comes to other posters' profile pics. Let that same poster put in an FML about getting dumped or insulted and it's all "you deserve better", "you're beautiful", "you'll find someone else".

You don't know if OP is a raging douchebag that you would call creepy if you met face to face. All you know is one incident in his life from his own point of view but you're so sure he'll get a better gf.

88 - yea I read it too and thought exactly the same!

"I'm not cocky." ... 4 lines later... "I'm an expert in diet, fitness, mathematics..." ...

An expert? Really?

129 - Ummm if you knew the correct uses of the words "your" and "you're" you would know that 121 used "your" perfectly. Unless people are in the habit of saying "you are bio"?

Everyone is different. On one hand I agree that quote is being run into the ground and getting annoying, but I couldn't imagine breaking up with someone over it.

92 Animorphs used to terrify me as a kid. I used to cover my ears with a blanket when I slept because I thought people would try to put those slug things in them.

Doortje, you know it's better to be thought of as an idiot, rather than opening your mouth (or in this case, using your keyboard), and removing all doubt

It's pretty petty of her to break up for that reason, but I suspect she really did so because she thought you were avoiding the questions.

If you do not feel the urge to run away/throw heavy things at the tv/fall asleep/... while watching The Notebook, there must be something terrible wrong with you. There are a few movies that I hate with all my heart and The Notebook is one of them. Oh my, what a terrible scenario it was. If those two lovebirds would just act rational, decide that they are independent from their parents and would get a relationship/marriage from the beginning, I wouldn't have to watch two hours of 'I love you, but this can't be! *goes away* *comes back* I love you, but this can't be! *and so on*' shit.
