Unrequited Love Movie: In the Land of Women

In the Land of Women is another unrequited love movie. It’s a typical Hollywood style movie for a younger audience.
The main protagonist is Carter (played by Adam Broody). He is devastated after his actress girlfriend breaks up with him. And he is a soft-core porn writer who has issues with women. He moves from California to Detroit to get his life together, and ends up “in the land of women”.

Written and directed by Jon Kasdan I personally didn’t think this is a great movie. It’s not a bad one either, but one that you watch once and then you forget about it. However, since it is a movie about unrequited love, I wanted to introduce it here.

Unrequited Love Song: Dashboard Confessional – Again I Go Unnoticed

Here’s another unrequited love song, this one by Dashboard Confessional an American rock band. This is actually about the last stage of a relationship – when someone is about to break the bond, when the other person doesn’t love you anymore, but that final goodbye hasn’t been spoken yet.

And here are the lyrics:

Another wasted night,
the television steals the conversation
exhale,
another wasted breath,
again I go unnoticed.

Please tell me you’re just feeling tired
cause if it’s more than that I feel that I might break
out of touch, out of time.
Please send me anything but signals that are mixed
cause I can’t read your rolling eyes
out of touch, are we out of time?

Close lipped
another goodnight kiss
is robbed of all it’s passion,
your grip
another time is slack
it leaves me feeling empty.

I’ll wait until tomorrow
maybe you’ll feel better then
maybe we’ll be better then
so what’s another day
when I can’t bear these nights of thoughts
of going on without you
this mood of yours is temporary
it seems worth the wait
to see your smile again
out of the corner of your eye
won’t be the only way you’ll look at me then.

Unrequited Love Song by Adele

This is a nice song about broken hearts sung by the female singer Adele. You find the lyrics below. Also check out our overview of unrequited love songs.

I’ve made up my mind don’t need to think it over

If i’m wrong i am right don’t need to look no further

This ain’t lust i know this is love

But if i tell the world i’ll never say enough

’cause it was not said to you

And that’s exactly what i need to do if i’d end up with you

Should i give up or should i just keep chasing pavements

Even if it leads nowhere?

Or would it be a waste even if i knew my place

Should i leave it there?

Should i give up or should i just keep chasing pavements

Even if it leads nowhere?

I build myself up and fly around in circles

Wait then as my heart drops and my back begins to tingle

Finally could this be it?

Should i give up or should i just keep chasing pavements

Even if it leads nowhere?

Or would it be a waste even if i knew my place

Should i leave it there?

Should i give up or should i just keep chasing pavements

Even if it leads nowhere?

Should i give up or should i just keep chasing pavements

Even if it leads nowhere?

Or would it be a waste even if i knew my place

Should i leave it there?

Should i give up or should i just keep on chasing pavements

Should i just keep on chasing pavements?

Should i give up or should i just keep chasing pavements

Even if it leads nowhere?

Or would it be a waste even if i knew my place

Should i leave it there?

Should i give up or should i just keep chasing pavements

Even if it leads nowhere?

Unrequited Love Song by Katy Perry

Here is another unrequited love song, this one by Katy Perry. The lyrics are below, and my favorite line is “You said move on, where do I go”.

Comparisons are easily done
Once you’ve had a taste of perfection
Like an apple hanging from a tree
I picked the ripest one
I still got the seed

You said move on
Where do I go
I guess second best
Is all I will know

Cause when I’m with him
I am thinking of you
Thinking of you
What you would do if
You were the one
Who was spending the night
Oh I wish that I
Was looking into your eyes

You’re like an Indian summer
In the middle of winter
Like a hard candy
With a surprise center
How do I get better
Once I’ve had the best
You said there’s
Tons of fish in the water
So the waters I will test

He kissed my lips
I taste your mouth
He pulled me in
I was disgusted with myself

Cause when I’m with him
I am thinking of you
Thinking of you
What you would do if
You were the one
Who was spending the night
Oh I wish that I
Was looking into…

You’re the best
And yes I do regret
How I could let myself
Let you go
Now the lesson’s learned
I touched it I was burned
Oh I think you should know

Cause when I’m with him
I am thinking of you
Thinking of you
What you would do if
You were the one
Who was spending the night
Oh I wish that I
Was looking into your eyes
Looking into your eyes
Looking into your eyes
Oh won’t you walk through
And bust in the door
And take me away
Oh no more mistakes
Cause in your eyes I’d like to stay…

Unrequited Love Song: Hiphop

A reader sent me this song, I didn’t know about it. It’s rather unusual, and I guess straight from the heart – and very explicit. Heavy usage of the f-word. But if you like hiphop, you might like it.

Unrequited Love Movie That Can Make You Smile

One of the few things that can help you when you try to get over a broken heart is when something is so funny that it makes you laugh, even in the midst of all the misery of unrequited love.
“Forgetting Sarah Marshall” is one of the few movies that might actually accomplish this. It’s a movie about unrequited love, with a funny twist. The plot and dialogues are quite good too, just watch the trailer.

A silly movie for sure, but that might just be what you need. Get some of your favorite TV snacks, switch of your phone and make yourself comfortable in front of your TV.
Sarah Marshall breaks up with him. He can’t get over it. So he tries to go on vacation to forget her. Twisted fate: she’s also on vacation. With her new boyfriend. In the same resort. In the room right next door. What unfolds will make you laugh…

An unrequited love short story from two different countries

This is an unrequited love story. It’s based on a real people, but names and countries have been exchanged. Let’s start with her. She was a girl always working hard. She was a kind of serious character, maybe because of her upbringing. She came from a fine family, but her parents broke up when she still was a child. In school, she focused on studying, at work she focused on getting things done.

But coming from a developing country, she wanted to go abroad, somewhere where should could earn a better salary. Going to the US or Europe wasn`t possible – but getting a job on a cruise ship was. She paid an agency to arrange for her to get the job.

On the ship, the work was tough and not what she expected. But, she got to know a guy whom she really liked, and who liked her too. Not at all a case of unrequited love.

Their contract was only for 10 months – and after that, they decided they would want to try their luck together away from the ship. They both went to her homecountry and got an appartment together. Things weren’t perfect – many things needed to be taken care of. For him, it was a tough experience – he didn’t speak the language, the culture was different, it wasn’t easy finding a job.

But anyway, they tried and tried. But finally, he didn’t have it in him – and he decided to go back to his country. It was all too much for him – the language, the jobsearch, and so on.

So he told her he wanted to go back. At least for some time, to see his friends and family back home.

Of course, she cried. She understood that he had a hard time and how difficult it was for him to adjust to this different culture. But at the same time, she would have hoped that the love he felt for her would have been enough to carry him through this. Apparently, it wasn’t.

So they bought a ticket for him to fly back. From there, he called and told her that he wouldn’t come back again, he’d stay in his country. He gave all kinds of reasons for why it was the case, but ultimately, it was probably because he wasn’t happy in that country, with her. She even asked him if she could come to live with him in his country – but he did not want that either.

She didn’t want to give up – partly because it wasn’t clear why he left her. He never told her that he didn’t love her, he always said so. But maybe he just didn’t really love her – maybe only she felt that magic for him.

Unrequited love is like this. It’s not only difficult to be the one who loves – sometimes it is also difficult to be the one who is loved, because you don’t want to tell the other person that you don’t love him or her. This can be tough. Nobody wants to break a heart. Sure, sometimes some part of us can feel validated if we see others want us – but in the end, we don’t want them to go through all kinds of pain and suffering.

Unrequited Love Song: I can’t make you love me

This is another unrequited love song that’s really beautiful. It’s sung by Allison Iraheta and has the title I can’t make you love me.

One of the favorite lines in this song for me is “Cause I can’t make you love me if you don’t, you can’t make your heart feel something it won’t”.

This is what makes unrequited love so sad – being powerless to change something about a thing that you are so intensely passionate about.

“I’ll close my eyes, then I won’t see, the love you don’t feel when you’re holding me”

Again – sometimes accepting the truth that a person doesn’t love you can be too painful, and just closing your eyes to that truth, pretending not to see and know it can be like a soothing embrace that can relief you of the pain – at least for a couple of moments.

 

Here are the lyrics:

Turn down the lights
Turn down the bed
Turn down these voices inside my head
Lay down with me, tell me no lies
Just hold me close, don’t patronize
Don’t patronize me.
Cause I can’t make you love me if you don’t
You can’t make your heart feel something it won’t
Here in the dark, in these final hours
I will lay down my heart and I’ll feel the power
But you won’t, no you won’t
Cause I can’t make you love me if you don’t.
I’ll close my eyes, then I won’t see
The love you don’t feel when you’re holding me
Mornin will come and I’ll do what’s right
Just give me till then to give up this fight
And I will give up this fight.
Cause I can’t make you love me if you don’t
You can’t make your heart feel something it won’t
Here in the dark, in these final hours
I will lay down my heart and I’ll feel the power
But you won’t, no you won’t
Cause I can’t make you love me if you don’t.

Unrequited Love Movie: Love Me If You Dare
