Love, as told by your favorite characters.
I find myself watching a ton of movies and tv shows in my free time. Every time I watch something new I notice how deeply invested I become in the characters, especially the ones that fall in love.
One of my favorite movies is Dirty Dancing. There is a scene in the movie where the main characters, Baby and Johnny are in a room together and Baby confesses that she is scared she will never find a love like him if she leaves. The simple but heart-felt statement gets me every time. I find myself quoting all of Baby’s lines as a smile at the screen. I can’t help myself! I am instantly overcome with joy.
If you haven’t guessed by now, my all-time favorite part of movies and tv shows are getting to watch the love scenes. If you’re anything like me, there is something about seeing your favorite actors and actresses confess their love for each other that genuinely makes you happy. Even though you know it isn’t real it makes you warm on the inside. The words exchanged give you hope that your true love is somewhere out in the universe just waiting to find you.
You fantasize about it more than you care to admit. You may even stop to ask yourself if it is even possible to truly love someone the way people do on the screen. Your answer might be a strong no, but like me, it doesn’t stop you from watching. If anything, you get pulled deeper in.
There is something about love, real or fake that ignites a flame in romantics. It makes you feel things you never thought you could and hope for things you never thought you wanted. Love is a magical thing, even on-screen.
Here are some great love quotes from movies and tv shows that will have you smiling from ear to ear as you feel your heart melting on the inside.
