Larry Crowne (Tom Hanks) did what most people to do when trying to improve their lives from the ground-up … he went to college. Â Crowne was laid off from his big-box company, a job he had since he left the military. Â Now with bills to pay and lots of free time, he decides to enroll in classes at his local community college. While there, he befriends a group of scooter-riding outcasts who, like Crowne, are trying to better their positions in life. Â Meanwhile, he falls for his public speaking teacher, Mercedes Tainot (Julia Roberts), who has lost her passion for her marriage, career and everything else. Â Larry CrowneÂ helps show the life of students in community college and the rising population of non-traditional college students. Â Plus, it shows that when someone’s lost everything, he or she may just find a new purpose.
What are ways to help a crush grow?
“Crush” is a playful word, however it does have some risks if that crush were to grow ito something serious. Â Cupid has some ways to help it bud safely:
1. Start in the ‘friend’s zone': Become friends, and see if there are any sparks from there. Â Build a solid foundation of trust and companionship at the base level.
2. Know your space: When you like someone, be aware that that person may not like you back, so pressing too much will cause he or she to back away. Â Keep some distance, at least initially.
3. Patience is a virtue: When trying to ‘make your move,’ it’s all about the timing. Â Make sure there’s no other relationship you’re intruding on and be aware it could take a lot of time before you can even be a potential lover.
