"I'd rather be alone, than be
with a lover and feel lonely.."
-Julie Delpy, Before Sunset
Out of nowhere, I remembered that movie again. That scene when Julie Delpy gave out that line in particular. It gave me something to ponder upon. What exactly was the writer trying to say by that? Basing on the characters Ethan Hawke and Julie played on the movie, Jesse (Ethan) revealed that he was unhappy with his marriage while Celine (Julie) preffered to be away from her lover than be with him and feel lonely.
Is there something in that particular situation that we should give notice to? Was the writer trying to let us see that Men needs Women more than Women needs Men? I didn't get if the writer was a female or male but I have a feeling that she was a she or maybe the writer have a large feminine influence in him given it's a male, that is.
I remember having an argument with Ranna before about this, and she emerged the victor (as always, in our arguments). I didn't have much to defend the male gender because I couldn't think of something that would prove that we, men are of the more necessity to women than vice versa. But personally I think she was right. She never needed any man in her lifetime so far but she seemed to be very happy with her life, whereas I am needing a woman right now (to love and be loved by) and I feel miserable for that.
