“Yes, I do. I’ve been in your shoes. You know what? It scared the hell out of me too. What if she hurt me? What if she left me? What if she died? It would have been the end of me. So I cut it short, before she ever could. And you know what? It was the biggest mistake I ever made. And you’re making the same mistake right now, and I’ll be goddamned if I’m going to sit by and watch. You’ve got to risk love Sandra! I didn’t and look at me! I’m a lonely ghost of a man. It doesn’t mean that you’re never going to get hurt, but the pain you feel will never compare to the regret that comes from walking away from love. And from someone who’s felt a lot of both trust me, regret beats pain everyday of the week and twice on Sunday. Don’t run away. Don’t do it.”
-Connor Mead (played by the jaw-droppingly handsome Matthew McConaughey), Ghosts of Girlfriends Past (2009)*
