So my friends introduced me this Thai movie called Crazy Little Thing Called Love (First Love), telling me how sickeningly sweet and totally relevant for everyone who has gone through the puppy-love phase during high school.
(Plus the lead guy is so handsome.)
When I finally got to watch it, I loved it so much—it was totally relatable. Everyone has experienced loving someone for the first. Like all firsts, it's a exciting, scary, and admittedly, a bit crazy.
I won't delve into details about the story, you HAVE to watch it yourself if you want proof of how great the movie is. You can download it HERE.
1. No matter how immature adults might think of the movie, truth is, everyone has gone through secret crushes and romances at some point of our lives, right?
2. Nothing compares to the feeling of falling in love for the first time.
3. You don't have to change yourself just to have the subject of your affection like you back. If someone is genuinely interested in you, he'll take notice no matter how you look.
4. Supplementary to number 3, you don't have to prove to someone just how amazing you are. Don't pretend to be someone you're not. Just be yourself.
5. Put your feelings of love into good use. Make it as your source of inspiration, not an instrument to destroy yourself.
6. Being in love doesn't guarantee a lifetime of happiness. Getting hurt is inevitable. So you have to learn to live with it.
7. Love is patient. It truly is. Romantic feelings take time to grow into something much deeper and permanent. True love can't be rushed.
8. Action speaks louder than words. You can't just say you love someone. You have to show it. And by showing it, it means you have to go the extra mile to tell the person how much you care for him.
9. If you want something to happen, don't just expect, do something about it.
10. And lastly, if you love someone, don't keep it a secret, tell him! There's nothing wrong with falling in love. It's human nature. Don't be shy.
