Bittersweet  






Montreal Subway System drama.

Saw this happening while waiting for the last train at like one in the morning.

It’s very sad for the poor girl having problems coping with her crush. But I appreciated that her friend still hugged her and was supportive rather then just outright reject her, like some people might do. 

It's an interesting situation, because surprise kissing is overly romantic everywhere in the media. Yet, when you kiss someone who is unavailable, or uninterested, it can cause a big dramatic situation.

Kissing is so bittersweet.

I dunno. It's everywhere now, in the media and in fanart. It's like people forget how much weight a single kiss can have, negatively or positively.

Hmm... It's sad the kiss wasn't reciprocated :( This made my heart sad.

At the same time, if the other girl isn't gay (or if she is, in love with someone else), you can't force her.

Of course, it's just sad that she took that leap to find out the other person wasn't interested. That's what made me sad.

Awww, that's so sad. But at least the friend was understanding. Sheesh, that could have gone way more terrible.

I know. That could have been horrifying

It's sweet that she stayed a good friend but, still this made my heart ache a bit.

Unrequired love, for whatever reason, is always a bit sad.

It's sweet that the friend was understanding. But it's sad that the other girl was rejected in a public place. That has to hurt.

Sadly, stuff that seems cool/romantic in the movies almost never works in real life.

Stuff is romantic movies would give most people in reality restraining orders.

That's....I think everyone's said it, but I hope they are able to stay friends because having feelings for a friend is very difficult.

Well, i'm glad the girl wasn't hummiliated and rejected with disgust. Then she can deal with the crush by just dealing with her feelings and not also dealing with bad social repercussions.

I love the way you look at this, and the tenderness with which you depicted the situation.

Your reaction is really similar to what I think about how people get engaged these days. The proposal as a surprise is a huge theme in life, bigger even than movies. And yet I think it's really the worst way to go. It's less romantic, but way better to be talking about marriage from the get go, if that's the direction anyone wants to go, and to take the relationship in planned, natural stages. And the choice to even promise to tie the knot really shouldn't be made during a moment of high passion! But, it should create one.

Now, the rings can always be a surprise.

Ah, sorry. Personal soapbox. When I proposed to my wife, I said, "Julie? I've got a question to ask you... HERE!"

Surprises may seem like a romantic thing, but for big decisions, it's better to just discuss it.

Poor long-haired girl. I hope they'll still remain friends and that it won't be too awkward for her.
Isabelle Melançonsecondlina on August 22nd, 2012 10:45 pm (UTC)
I hope so too.

That's such an incredible scene to witness. I'm glad that the friend was so supportive.
Isabelle Melançonsecondlina on August 22nd, 2012 10:45 pm (UTC)
Me too. I felt kinda bad witnessing it. I just could not turn away. Felt like such a creeper.

My greatest respect to the friend. In a similar (although gender-reversed) situation I fear I would not have handled things so well. :(

(On an unrelated note, do girls really call each other "dude" these days? O_o)
Isabelle Melançonsecondlina on August 22nd, 2012 10:46 pm (UTC)
Yep, girls do call each other "dude". In some groups. (me and my friends do, among others)

This is adorable. I wonder what song they were listening too :-)

Sounded pop-ish, from afar.
