|I love you so much! Let's combine our love for entertainment!|
Just be prepared to be berated for twenty minutes when I find out you fell asleep during "Pulp Fiction".
Compatibility: It's important to begin with a solid foundation. Like a natural consistency in checking the mail and a mutual regard for dark comedies.
|Did anyone else just see Patrick Bateman while watching "Batman"?|
Attention: It's easy in the beginning, but gets harder to pay proper attention to your partner further on, especially when they keep insisting on starting a conversation five minutes after the PS3 Netflix updates have been completed and you're trying to watch "Wilfred".
|It's a man in a dog suit, and it's good.|
I know! I was just as surprised as you are.
Respect: New episodes of a show you hate, but your partner loves, have been added to instant streaming, and you tell your partner about them anyway.
|He's not a psychic, just really observant? Seriously?|
The only reason I tolerate it is for the pineapples...
Trust: Having faith that your partner will remember to mail out the old DVD's so that "The NeverEnding Story" will arrive in time for your 1980's movie marathon on Saturday.
|Because luck dragons are the shit.|
Compromise: Not flooding the DVD Queue with boring "classic" movies, or shitty Steven Seagal "action thrillers".
|Tee-hee! It's like Seagal is a pervert.|
Bonding: Find that connection to share. Like when you both discover your love for "Archer".
Honesty: Not sneakily shifting your movies to the top of the queue to avoid watching "On Deadly Ground".
|Ugh. There is just far too much fringe...|
Patience: Remaining calm while your partner tries to make claims that Steven Seagal is like a modern John Wayne (he isn't).
Kindness: Sitting through all 127 minutes of "McLintock!" or all 96 minutes of "Submerged" without complaining.
Spontaneity: Agreeing to watch "Toys" on a whim. Discover too late that it's the worst movie ever.
|Dammit Robin Williams! |
I trusted you!
Communication: Letting your partner know when you're rearranging the lineup of movies in your queue. Checking with your partner before removing anything from instant queue.
|What the hell did you do with "30 Rock"?!|
Humor: A little less "Requiem for a Dream", a little more "Princess Bride".
|Because everyone can use more young Cary Elwes in their life.|
Fidelity: Not giving out the damn Netflix password!
|Who the hell is watching "Killer Klowns from Outer Space"?|
Acceptance: Being okay with having half your queue eaten up by Greta Garbo silent films, while the other half drowns in "Zombie Strippers" and Jean-Claude Van Damme doing the splits.
|The man's entire career is built on freakish flexability.|
Because at this point, who else are you going to find that's so willing to share the journey of conforming ass cheeks to couch cushions?
