I went to a screening for The Other Woman last night. It stars Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann, Kate Upton, and Nicki Minaj. The film was actually pretty funny! I laughed very hard in some parts and I enjoyed seeing the comedic dynamic between wife and a mistress.
In the beginning of the film, Cameron Diaz’ had just started seeing the married man thinking he was single. He had pursued her for an “exclusive” relationship and she resisted at first. When he asked to meet her Dad, she was hesitant but finally agreed. She told him she wanted to stay in their “relationship bubble” with just the two of them for as long as she could. The reality was that she thought he was too perfect. He was buying gifts, being super romantic, and presented himself to be the ideal man. This became a red flag though! She begins to think he is TOO good to be true.
Do you ever meet someone so great that you start to actually look for what is wrong with them? It’s like we can’t trust that we met someone who is the best match for us, so we believe that they just have to be lying about who they really are!
It’s a little sad that we become so cynical after all our dating misadventures, but maybe that is just reality. Do you think you are too cynical when you meet someone wonderful? Are you secretly waiting for something to be revealed that will prove they aren’t as great as they appear to be? Is that cynicism or being a realist?
