(C) : It's not so easy for me to be a romantic.
You start off that way, and,
after you've been screwed over a few times...
You... you forget about all your delusional ideas,
and you just take what comes into your life.
That's not even true,
I haven't been...screwed over,
I've just had too many...
bla relationship. They weren't mean, they cared for me,
but...they were no real...connection, or excitement.
At least, not from my side.
(J) : God, I'm sorry, is it...Is it really that bad?
(C) : It's not, right?
You know...It's not even that, I was...
I was fine.
Until I read your fucking book!
It stirred shit out from you,
It reminded me how...genuinely romantic I was,
how I had so much hope in things and...
now it's like...
I don't believe in anything that relates to love,
I don't feel things for people anymore.
In a way...I put all my romanticism into that one nigh stand
I was never able to feel all this again.
Like...somehow this night took things away from me and...
I expressed them to you and
you took them with you!
It made me feel cold,
like if love wasn't for me!
