Love and work are not fairy tales

500 days of Summer

#1. It was love at first sight

Tom Hansen grew up believing that he’d never truly be happy until the day he met the one. Tom meets Summer on January 8th. He knows almost immediately she is who he has been searching for.

#2. They lived happily ever after

This is a story of boy meets girl, but you should know upfront, this is not a love story.

Just like few of us experience love at first sight, few will experience passion and meaning at first experience. Like a relationship, we must build it from scratch, piece-by-piece, until after years of brick and sweat, it can stand on its own.
