As I have real life experience in this area, I wouldn't touch the book with a ten foot pole. From what I know, people who find themselves in those relationships are not in the best head space, regardless of what they want you to think by way of making it seem "sexy." I hope the movie is a flop that doesn't even gain the cult flop status of Showgirls. And... out. ;-)
The other thing that occurred was Neil, when confronted with the idea another man found her attractive, started to feel the same. He looked at her differently and even admitted to someone at some point, probably the Monk, that he saw positive changes in her as a result of what she had done; at least enough to open his eyes to her in a new way. That was part of the reason he didn't just bail. Neil accepted that he wasn't the best husband and was willing to stick with Grace to see what comes next.
And I love reading everyone's comments. There's no need for us all to agree as long as we remain respectful of others' opinions. What's weird is I didn't find it as creepy for Ray to buy her the dress and I did her reaction to seeing it. Holding it, whining and saying couture as if she really cared about it freaked me out a lot more than him buying it. He's inept. For her that was out of left field. Ah well. We'll see how it all plays out going forward! :-)
There are many ways to violate a marriage. My parents may not have cheated, but they didn't have a romantic love and it scarred me worse than if I would have seen at least one of them love someone. I come from a long line of what seemed to be platonic marriages. They're the worst.
We're not texting, feel free to use a full sentence. What the heck is TLDR?
Even if this was a gang of Hazels, Sallys and Beths, I'd cry foul. Men and women are just so easy to spot, based on what they say. Read thousands of comments a week and you don't even need to see names to know the sex of the writer. :-)
You answered your own question as to why I didn't cover Thea and the DJ. It was incredibly random and pointless. If they get a real story, it will get mentioned. As I mentioned in the review, in the comics they moved away from the sci-fi element in the comics by making the actual suit shrinkable because of the dark star matter rather than making Ray a metahuman, which I suppose he was at some point (I'm a googler, so I get my stories piece meal!). With everything else we're taking with a grain of salt, I can take that, too. Science is *supposed* to do cool things, right? Where is my briefcase that turns into a car? We're so behind where the imagination takes us. ;-)
Someone who stumbles over his own words to the point he starts to think he sounds creepy isn't creepy. He's awkward around Felicity, sure, but he was awkward in the board meeting, too, BTW (to quote him there at the end). So far he has been shown to be sure of himself, but not skilled with personal interactions of any kind. I just don't see what's creepy about that. Rather, I find it endearing. While he could be a playboy, he's not because he's not a smooth operator.
I inspired you to do some research!! We rock. ;-)
You're winning awards, here, Winter. I'm stunned into silence! :-)
