Plastic surgeon playboy Danny (Adam Sandler) attracts women in a rather unique fashion — by pretending he’s stuck in a bad marriage in order to ease tension and give them a false sense of trust. Then the unthinkable happens. Danny meets a woman (Brooklyn Decker) he actually sees a legitimate future with, and gets caught in his “bad marriage” routine. To try to repair the damage, he comes up with an off-the-wall plan and asks his loyal office manager (Jennifer Anniston) to play the role of his future divorcee. Eventually, even her two kids to get involved in his growing lie. Just Go With It comically begs the question: how far should you go to win someone’s heart?
How far should you go to make a relationship work?
People do crazy things in the name of love, but there has to be some boundaries. Cupid has some thoughts on what yours should be:
1. Be honest: As easy as it is to create an alter-ego like Danny did in Just Go With It, when you’re going for a real relationship, it won’t work. Stay true to who you really are, and let things play out from there.
2. Respect boundaries: If you’re really interested in someone, you’re going to have to play by the rules. If he or she is already seeing someone, you’ll have to be patient. Settle for being in the background until the time is right.
3. Simple gestures make a difference: When you’re wooing someone, chances are he or she will remember you for your simple romantic gestures, such as opening the door or pulling out the chair. It’s those little quirks in your personality that make all the difference.
