My obsession runs pretty deep with Lloyd Dobler. No …. He’s not a real person. However, if I could mold the perfect guy… It would be Lloyd.
I have always adored the character, from the movie Say Anything, for years …. Yeeeaarrrrrs. However, I just realized that I do look for Lloyd every day.
When I was making my recent ad for my business…. I realized, oh my gosh I am obsessed with Mr. Dobler.
Signs I’ve should have seen the writing on the wall that I am obsessed with Lloyd Dobler.
- I’ve seen Say Anything at least 30-40 times.
- My favorite song is ” In Your Eyes” by Peter Gabriel.
- When a guy says he does mixed martial arts… Especially kick boxing.. I go weak in the knees.
- I have a framed picture of Lloyd Dobler in my room. ( yes… As I’m writing this I’m aware that it sounds a bit weird). The picture is one of the scenes from the movie.
- Some use the WWJD ( what would Jesus do) method in certain situations. I use the WWLD ( figure it out) when I’m on dates. If he’s not a Lloyd type. I usually fake a text (now that it easier with Chelsea Handler’s app called Go… Thank you Chelsea )
- I get irritated at the end of Say Anything and usually blurt out… “she doesn’t deserve you Lloyd!”
What does all this mean? That I will most likely be single the rest of my life. Which… I am TOTALLY ok with. Freedom is a beautiful thing. I go where I want, with who I want…. All of a sudden I am sounding like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman… Hmm. Yes! I’m like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman.. MINUS the whole hooker thing. Anyways … I digress…. If anyone is looking for me, I’ll be over here chillin’, minding my business, living a sweet life and keeping my eye out for Lloyd.
He’s my Chasing Amy… Which is a whole other ball of wax.
