I Can Relate to Ghosts of Girlfriends Past
Ghosts of Girlfriends Past is coming out this 4th of June starring Matthew McConaughey as Connor Mead and Jennifer Garner as Jenny. It's about Connor, who is a total womanizer, doesn't believe or want to fall in love and laughs at his brother's wedding on the eve of the day.
Definitely a romantic comedy and how may I relate to it? Hmm... I don't know. Personally, I have never had a boyfriend before. "I'm too young to have a boyfriend!" is what I used to say as an excuse. Sure I've dated a couple of times, that's it. So I guess I'll just have to share my views on this.
Let's see, a casonova is what they call a 'player' over here. I believe players are either very insecured of themselves or don't believe in love. Expounding the first reason, they think by picking up women or tapping them makes them more of a man and it feeds their ego.
On the latter, committing to a relationship is scary as hell 'cus knowing that love won't last for long, desiring other women is unacceptable being stuck in a relationship. That's why, it's best to be a single, flirting, shallow, heart-breaking... in short, a free man.
It's also another protective barrier. I would say it's best not to take things too seriously unless you're planning for long-term commitments. As for me, I think I'll get a boyfriend when I'm 17 or something. Hope I don't catch a Connor!
