  • I'm pretty sure I left you at the bar...

  • Oh, yep, that's right.

  • And then I didn't see you for the rest of the night.

  • Dude, I feel we barely made it out of there alive.

  • You were those guys.

  • Well dude, he wouldn't let us go,

  • he just kept us all there,

  • I think he, like, bought out the entire bar.

  • Seriously?

  • But he tipped the bartender like twenty bucks, so...

  • Some things never change.

  • Seriously...

  • But wasn't it good to see everyone again?

  • Like, that's why I love weddings,

  • They're like mini reunions.

  • I think the last time we were all together

  • was that big trip to Costa Rica.

  • Oh my gosh, you're right.

  • That was seven years ago. Seven years!

  • Man, I dunno why I lost touch with most of them.

  • Well, I think life just takes people in different directions.

  • Yeah, but...

  • you and I stay friends.

  • Yeah...

  • Aww, this is a good one of all of us.

  • Whoa! What is going on here?

  • Brandon is all over you.

  • Yeah...

  • What?

  • He definitely took advantage of the open bar,

  • got super drunk and weird.

  • Weird? How so?

  • Well...

  • Just before we left,

  • he pulled me to the side

  • and he told me he liked me,

  • and I'm guessing that wasn't what you wanted to hear.

  • I mean, I'm flattered...

  • He's sweet.

  • Right.

  • But it's a bit more complicated than that.

  • Yeah, especially at our age right?

  • With everything we've been through,

  • you can't just tell someone "I like you."

  • Remember when "I like you" was enough?

  • "I like you" was all you wanted to hear from someone.

  • I do.

  • I mean, I could clearly recall

  • the first time I heard those words from the girl that I liked.

  • For the first time, it was mutual, and of all the people in our town,

  • she chose me.

  • It was the most incredible feeling in the world.

  • "I like you" was enough.

  • When was this?

  • Last week.

  • No, it was err... it was high school.

  • She became my first girlfriend.

  • She became my first love.

  • "I like you" became "I love you."

  • Yeah...

  • Remember when...

  • "I love you" was enough?

  • ...yeah

  • "I love you" was

  • the epitome of your feelings for someone.

  • It meant you two were no longer kids,

  • that you found the one,

  • and you're done. That's it.

  • It was...

  • enough.

  • ...yeah

  • But that was before ex-boyfriends,

  • before ex-girlfriends,

  • before... her disapproving parents,

  • before that little bad habit grew into the most annoying thing ever,

  • before pretending to like golf,

  • before wishing he'd enjoy dancing

  • and sitting through musicals just to make her happy.

  • It was enough before she took the job overseas

  • and long distance revealed our weaknesses.

  • This was before he gave up...

  • ...on himself,

  • before you realized you were never gonna convert.

  • This was before he was ready for marriage and kids

  • and you weren't.

  • "I love you" was enough before other "I love you"s,

  • and before he said, "I thought I loved you."

  • This was before he cheated,

  • and before your own thoughts strayed to someone else.

  • It was enough before we were hurt so deeply,

  • and before we hurt others so selfishly.

  • "I love you" was enough

  • until you found out it wasn't.

  • Hey, where are you going? What's up?

  • Is that really what you believe?

  • I'm just saying love isn't as simple as we once thought it was.

  • I mean it's true, right?

  • You know, I always kept a little hope with you,

  • but you're so far gone.

  • Probably doesn't even matter if I tell you.

  • What are you talking about?

  • You wanna know why I told Brandon things were so complicated?

  • I like you.

  • I might even love you,

  • but you're right,

  • it's just words, a statement.

  • It's not enough,

  • and it won't ever be if you think that's all you need.

  • What makes it enough,

  • what makes it the one,

  • is choice.

  • Constantly choosing to love.

  • So what are you gonna choose?

I'm pretty sure I left you at the bar...
