Breakfast at Tiffany's

“Let’s not say another word; let’s just go to sleep”

My spirits felt a little low this evening so I decided to do something to cheer myself up.
I rented a movie; but not any movie, Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
It seemed like a good film choice: No die-hard special effects, no teeny-bopper actor’s or actresses trying to fit in with slutty society. Just a good story. Simplicity is what I was looking for.
Simplicity. What does this word even mean anymore? I thought I knew-but I really don’t have a clue.
For Holly Golightly, it’s so easy for her to just crawl in a man’s window, have a nice conversation with him, a drink and a cigarette, and then crawl into his bed and say “Let’s not say another word; let’s just go to sleep”. Keep in mind-she just met this guy that very day.
I know it’s just a movie-but it seems so easy for her to open herself up to a complete stranger. Why does it have to be so hard for me to open myself up to somebody I know?
I’m being naive. I know the reasons. But please, I’m begging you reasons. Go away and let me be happy. Truly, infinitely happy. Please.

Fear is one of the main reasons that stops friends from going into a relationship, and honestly life is too short to be hiding behind the "friend" barrier. Like the song says "Take a chance on me". Ont that note how about we meet up for coffe toronto
