Great post. I think the tone of the film also told us that we're going to have some fun here - remember the music-building slo-mo shots? - so just go with it, coincidences and all. Screenwriter Dan Fogelman seemed to be saying, "A little latitude, your Honor, and ye shall be rewarded." And I was. Scott

I can understand how (mostly?) younger people would gravitate to the idea that "there's only one for me." It *feels* like that when we're with that first, big, wonderful love. But is it really The End, Fade Out at that point? No, life goes on, more stories unfold, particularly of a less than romantic nature. Life is messy. I have a friend who lost his wife to cancer years ago. He's raising three kids on his own now and I've watched him gently dip his toe into the dating pool, even embarking on a serious relationship that eventually ended badly. The hitch? During the ups and downs of that new relationship, at any moment he might privately feel the sudden urge to burst into tears over the loss of his deceased wife, unable to truly fill the hole in his heart she left behind. Can someone like that still find happiness? I say love will find a way... in the form of another person. Scott

It's interesting to note that they are BOTH reluctant. Their A stories are career driven; their B story is their budding love, yes? If it's fairly normal for a nonrom-com to have a love story as the B story, how often do rom-coms have the love story as the B story as well?

"...the person we want to believe we are–wise, compassionate, upstanding..." Isn't that the reflection of ourselves we see in our (potential?) lover?
