10 Times We Were Way Too Jealous Of Noah And Allie's Love

10 Times We Were Way Too Jealous Of Noah And Allie's Love

Why, Nicholas Sparks, did you raise my expectations for love like this?

If you're anything like myself and most of my peers, you've watched 'The Notebook' a few hundred times, and still probably cry your eyes out each time you watch it again. It's the definition of the perfect chick flick: tons of romance, just enough funny scenes to balance out the sad parts and the bittersweet ending, and Allie ends up with the right guy at the end, which is always awesome. Their love story is just so perfect and raw, it's hard not to be green with envy when you watch the movie. Let's face it, Allie never waited around for days for a text from Noah, and I can guarantee you he never said "wyd?" at 2:30 in the morning. Though it's hard to pick one scene in particular that really gave me all of the feels, I was able to narrow it down to my top 10. Here's the 10 scenes in 'The Notebook' that made us all the most jealous, in no particular order.

1. If you're a bird, I'm a bird.

Why, Nicholas Sparks, did you raise my expectations for love like this? Where are the rest of the Noah's of the world? Someone, be a bird with me!

2. "Get in the water!"

This was too cute, though it's hard to really understand why Allie didn't want to get in the water in the first place. I get the rope swing was a little scary, but hello? Noah was in there!

3. Allie and Noah's first date.

Dancing in the streets, a movie date, nearly getting run over by a town car. Ahh, young love.

4. "I wanna go out with you!"

Remember when Noah pretty much risked his life to get a date with a girl he saw once? Love at first sight, ladies and gents.

5. When it still wasn't over.

There are no words to describe the perfection of this scene. If we didn't know any better, we would think that this was reality TV instead of a movie. It all appeared to be so real.

6. When Noah literally threw himself at Allie.

She was so hard to win over, if Ryan Gosling was after me like that, I'd probably give him a much easier time.

7. "It was us."

This gets me in all the feels every single time.

8. When they finally reunite after way, way too long.

If you don't think about your first love during this scene, you're lying.

9. When Allie realizes he was waiting for her all along.

Okay, seriously, Mrs. Hamilton sucks. Why would she keep all of that from Allie? Wouldn't she want to keep her from choosing money over true love and making the same mistake she did?

10. When she comes back.

There was a small part of me that didn't think she would go back to Noah the first time I saw this movie. I still get goosebumps every time he sees her coming back down the driveway.

I'm The Girl Without A 'Friend Group'

And here's why I'm OK with it


Little things remind me all the time.

For example, I'll be sitting in the lounge with the people on my floor, just talking about how everyone's days went. Someone will turn to someone else and ask something along the lines of, "When are we going to so-and-so's place tonight?" Sometimes it'll even be, "Are you ready to go to so-and-so's place now? Okay, we'll see you later, Taylor!"

It's little things like that, little things that remind me I don't have a "friend group." And it's been like that forever. I don't have the same people to keep me company 24 hours of the day, the same people to do absolutely everything with, and the same people to cling to like glue. I don't have a whole cast of characters to entertain me and care for me and support me. Sometimes, especially when it feels obvious to me, not having a "friend group" makes me feel like a waste of space. If I don't have more friends than I can count, what's the point in trying to make friends at all?

I can tell you that there is a point. As a matter of fact, just because I don't have a close-knit clique doesn't mean I don't have any friends. The friends I have come from all different walks of life, some are from my town back home and some are from across the country. I've known some of my friends for years, and others I've only known for a few months. It doesn't really matter where they come from, though. What matters is that the friends I have all entertain me, care for me, and support me. Just because I'm not in that "friend group" with all of them together doesn't mean that we can't be friends to each other.

Still, I hate avoiding sticking myself in a box, and I'm not afraid to seek out friendships. I've noticed that a lot of the people I see who consider themselves to be in a "friend group" don't really venture outside the pack very often. I've never had a pack to venture outside of, so I don't mind reaching out to new people whenever.

I'm not going to lie, when I hear people talking about all the fun they're going to have with their "friend group" over the weekend, part of me wishes I could be included in something like that. I do sometimes want to have the personality type that allows me to mesh perfectly into a clique. I couldn't tell you what it is about me, but there is some part of me that just happens to function better one-on-one with people.

I hated it all my life up until very recently, and that's because I've finally learned that not having a "friend group" is never going to be the same as not having friends.
