"It’s that thing when you’re with someone
and you love them and they know it,
and they love you and you know it,
but it’s a party!
And you’re both talking to other people
and you’re laughing and shining
and you look across the room
and catch each other’s eyes.
But…but not because you’re possessive
or it’s precisely sexual but because
that is your person in this life.
And it’s funny and sad but only because
this life will end. And it’s this secret world
that exists right there in public unnoticed
that no one knows about.
It’s sort of like how they say that other
dimensions exist all around us,
but we don’t have the ability to perceive them.
That’s…that’s what I want out of a relationship
or just life, I guess."
Frances Handley (Greta Gerwig) in Frances Ha
