      The more festive, the lonelier

        "Amber" said, "All love is sad, but even though it is sad, it is still the most beautiful thing we know." It also said, "Don't think about feelings so great and solemn, everything is just passing by. After your emotional shock, you have to complete your own journey."
          The brief encounter originating from the Internet has a huge energy of love. On New Year's Eve, a festival of saying goodbye to the old and welcoming the new, at least two world-weary people who are alone are...

      I will remember for the rest of my life

      I love the two paragraphs, the beginning and the end. It seems that Westerners are more honest, and Easterners are a bit cunning. Min was flirting with the computer and teasing a misanthropic man at the New Year's party, saying that he was immersed in it by being used as a masturbation object by others, and I felt that this person was fake. Westerners can say what they want to say and do what they want, which seems to be a little stubborn, but I like the direct feeling, including the foul...

      One Night Kiss

      Life is impermanent, there are too many expectations and encounters. In the end, the one who held hands and walked together may not be you yesterday.

      There are too many bites in life, and crazy polishing.

      A stone also has a day of growth.

      Miracles lie in a life of fantasy.

      If there is no desire, if, despair, what love, hate, affection, hatred?

      You and I are just little dust in the universe.

      Since there will be disillusionment one...

      One time love ONS

      In the last hours of the year, a relationship occurs. The real picture and the wonderful soundtrack are perfectly blended.

      Midnight kiss is actually a foreign follow-up product, but the complex meaning and romantic color it is endowed with makes more and more people flock to it. "It's not just a kiss, it's the moment of passion that burst out of hope for love that has been suppressed for a whole year. And such a shuddering kiss is mixed with...

      Many times better than "Love Before Sunrise and Sunset", not romantic for romance's sake. Many plots and details make for a complex...

      Under the seemingly natural and unruly appearance, there is a fragile and lonely side, which can make others understand the most rare, sincere, and warmest state; however, this kind of pain still has to be faced with one's own strong...

    Movie quotes

    • [first lines]

      Wilson: The midnight kiss. It's not just another kiss. It's all the hope of romance of the year culminating in just one moment. And that over-hyped kiss, in which there is so much calling, texting, I.M.-ing, planning, hurrying, drinking to make happen, is set at a moment when time itself takes center stage, when you can palpably feel the weight of the year to come, mix with the loneliness and missed opportunities of the years gone by.


      Wilson: For years I used to work at a video store, and on new year's, I would always deal with what I thought were my people... those brokenhearted soles that hated the whole pageantry of the night, the ones who wanted to quietly and privately wallow in their own self-pity, getting drunk on the fictional romance and heartbreak of others.


      Wilson: That was me... the lonely, hunkered-down type waiting for the night to blow over. But sometimes when you are so low you can no longer follow that routine anymore...

    • Jacob: Look, if you really want to meet someone who's pretty and cool and interesting, you can do that. All you have to do my friend is uh, put an ad up on the Craigslist.

    • Wilson: [after posting a romantic connections ad on Craigslist] I can't believe we're doing this. We're inviting total insanity into our house.

      Jacob: That's good man. You're not gonna sitting around the apartment.

      Wilson: We're gonna get robbed. I'm gonna get raped!
