      I cheated on my boyfriend and I still don’t know why I did that. I was just not ready and I was missing something. I had to self reflect al lot and this video is helping me figure out myself and my past relationships.

      I dont know is anyone still reading this in 2019 or not but this is something that has happened to me.. I don’t know whether I loved her or the idea of her but oh I so badly wanted to be the best guy for her. She was pretty average looking but to me, even now, just her thought makes my heart flutter more than any models that I follow in insta. I gave the relationship everything.. I went from being fluffy to having 6-packs. I got into one of the best uni, with fully funded scholarships, my research got published,,, I mean apart from being an indian and having a funny accent, by the end I honestly ran out of things that I could further improve. Anyways, she got a residency at a hospital in california and she went.. I came here in singapore for more research... its been like 6 months or so.. even today I don’t get what I did wrong... even today, every day I kinda pick up the phone thinking about checking on her, but then just keep the phone back down knowing she doesn’t want me in her life... if you have read all this far the probably something similar happened to you.. and to you my brother (or sister), i just wanna say that, let me know if you find a way of coming to terms with this loss.. I still feel like even though I have moved on and had so many casual sex since then, my ability to actually think of someone with care and love has completely gone...and this movie kinda really stroke that string.. but hey.. life goes on right..

        When everything is great but someone still rejects you they are unsure of THEMSELVES. You are not the problem and you are not there to try to fix and patch up the things they can't figure out. Most importantly, when someone rejects you they are simply NOT READY FOR YOU. You can't be awesome together because because doubt will always be around like a third wheel. Let them go with their doubts. Focus on living your best life.

                I've watched this movie a few times around 13-15 years old and I NEVER understood it being that it would go to the present and then the past and the future??? but you gave a perfect explanation on this all. Now that I'm 20 and have experienced quite a big amount of love and loss in those few years (a lot can happen in 5 years), I now understand and relate. I kinda find it funny that there are a lot of movies and shows I want to watch but can never be bothered watching everything and you create a perfect animated recap of everything in the funniest way! Like if anyone wants to watch a movie/show without the trailer but cbb, a perfect and more ENTERTAINING summary is on your channel. Thank you!

                        Lol everyone is getting it the wrong way round: Summer isn't the problem here it is Tom. Tom is an immature manchild who doesn't treat women like real people but forces them into his own ideal of what a woman should be. In a 2012 interview Joseph himself says that he doesn't like his character in the film for those reasons.

                            Yes summer explained what she wanted at that time but then she proceeded to LEAD him on! You dont say you dont want anything serious and then immediately do things that serious couples would do. I mean come on, at certain point tom had every right to assume yhey were a couple heading somewhere.

                              Saw this movie after a break up which really REALLY got me down. And this movie was like a colossal MASSIVE slap in the face. Truly an important lesson to learn from this movie. One of my favorites !

                                I think it was a pretty good idea of the author to make the longing character male and the "distant" one female. Otherwise he would only have been "the ashole".
                                I don't have proof, but i think that this "Tom-thing" is more common among women. I got a male friend, who is telling the girl he dates exactly the same things like Summer, but in the end the girls act like Tom ^^

                                  Can’t judge either character. I’ve been Tom and I’ve been Summer.

                                        The favourite theme of the movie for me is that how two similar people exchange their ideas in which they differ i.e. love. Haha

                                            I first saw this film with my mom because it was a favourite of hers and I’m really glad I did at such a young age. It taught me a valuable lesson that I don’t think I otherwise would have learnt. It’s a love story but it’s more realistic than most we see presented to us nowadays. I could confidently say it’s up there with the best movies I’ve seen.

                                                I really liked what you did in this video. You changed the art and finally made a critical video about a movie that is not negative. It's nice to see you evolve and explore new ways of entertaining and educating. Your last few videos felt forced. Everyone knows a bad film when they see one, so making fun of them that bad isn't really necessary after a certain point. In order to attract new audiences and generally evolve as a content maker, you needed this change. Well done!

                                                    I think I watched this movie in the bus on a class trip and I thought it was weird, but I slept through the half of it and only saw half of the screen... I should rewatch it

                                                          "Was Tom in love with summer or was he just in love with his idea of summer?"

                                                          This is sth I really relate to. I was in love with someone for years before I realised exactly that. I was in love with my idea of him and not really him. I came to this realisation some months ago and so much emotional stuff and all this confusion came off my shoulders though sometimes it comes back a little and I need to remind myself that it's not true, that I uncounsciously deluded myself and fell in love with this "idea". It's a really interesting phenomenon tbh.

He realized he just wasn't 'the one' for her. When he finally wished for her to be happy, I felt like this was him letting her go and when he meets Autumn he almost leaves her in fear that she's just gonna end up 'hurting him' like Summer did but instead he realizes it's not Summer's fault she just wasn't the one for him, he should at least give Autumn as chance maybe she could be. They kind of both ended up teaching each other to be more open even though they didn't end up with each other.

The full sentence was I don't want a relationship with you. I think that's a major distinction to make because it shapes Tom's whole perspective. When you're dating someone and you think there's an emotional connection/chemistry and they can't verbalize why they don't feel the same way, it's frustrating. What makes it worse is when that person continues to give you what in your mind is 'mixed signals'. The biggest illustration of this in the movie is when Summer goes to Tom's apartment and has sex with him after their big fight. The mature thing for her to do in that situation would have been to end the relationship since it was toxic for both of them. Tom also could have done that, but it was much harder for him given the fact that it didn't make sense to him why she didn't want to be with him in the first place.

                                                                            • Novigrad and ploughing

A man did this to me a month back three days into knowing me asking if he should take us seriously or not. I said I just wanted to follow the flow, and he kind of made me feel I needed to make a choice or it would only be like friends with benefits... I was heartbroken because I was enjoying our time so much but I couldn’t make a commitment like that at the time or even now. Go with the flow my friends, just go with the flow.

                                                                                        so it’s really best for everyone to swallow it and move on no matter how difficult that is

                                                                                          Thats pretty telling of the human condition
