Does any one remember that dog and his bone story from when we were kids? Years later and I realized the concept kinda stuck with me. Below is a list of a few movies with the common theme of realizing that special someone right under your nose (figuratively speaking).
You’ve Got Mail: ESTJ with ISFJ. What if you got to know a person, the way they really were, not projecting what you wanted others to see, but the real you instead? Kathleen and Joe couldn’t stand each other in real life, but online, fell in love with each others thoughts and company — separate from any personal details.
Clueless: ESFJ with INFP (I think). Consistent with the theme. Cher finally realizes she’s “butt-crazy” in love with Josh, but it takes one of her friends crushing on him to realize the source of her jealousy. How would you act, once you had such a far out realization? I love how awkward this realization made reigning socialite Cher act around Josh.
Only You: ENFP with INFP. Faith is set on finding her soul mate. The guy belonging to the name she got off a Ouija board when she was twelve. She finds him. But, what happens when Faith realizes he lied about his name? How far would you go to make destiny happen.
Laws of Attraction: ISTJ with INFJ. What if you realized you were actually in love with the person you accidentally married at an Irish festival? Might work. Two divorce lawyers get married while investigating opposing sides of the same divorce case. One believes in divorce law, the other doesn’t. I’m glad the ISTJ didn’t win this case.
I know you prefer your beau a bit ROTTEN,
And since I’m more SPORTY I’m almost forgotten!
But maybe this year on sweet Saint Val’s
I will reach out to my sweetest of Pals.
So why don’t you tell me if you will be mine,
Would you do me the honor Dearest Valentine?

Beginning in the middle of the 19th century and continuing into the early 20th century many people sent not just traditional valentines to people whom they ostensibly loved, but also insult cards to people for whom they lacked affection to put it mildly. Most are composed of a caricature drawing and a pithy poem. Some of these cards are really hateful, and I imagine that was the point, but surely many were given as tongue-in-cheek mementos of twisted friendships.
I enjoy these artifacts as a countermeasure to the modern hyperbolic consumerist love festival of our contemporary Valentine’s Day. I’d personally love to get a such cards, and even if genuinely hateful they’re likely less shaming than only receiving a Valentine’s Day card from my mother.
