Cupid's Pulse Article: Stephanie Meyer’s Novel Turned Into a Movie, ‘The Host!’Cupid's Pulse Article: Stephanie Meyer’s Novel Turned Into a Movie, ‘The Host!’

By Meghan Fitzgerald

Aliens, called ‘souls’  invaded Earth and have begun to take control of people’s minds! The new upcoming supernatural movie, The Host, is adapted from Stephanie Meyer’s novel. Written and directed by Andrew Niccol, the stars on deck include Saoirse Ronan, Max Irons, Diane Kruger, and Jake Abel. Souls can only survive through inserting a host into another person’s body. Melanie Stryder (Ronan) was inserted with one of these ‘souls.’ Melanie begins to feel sympathetic towards humans, discovers what love is, and is trying to run away from the people trying to kill her.

Should you see it: Are you a huge fan of the Twilight Saga? Are you completely obsessed with the love story of Edward and Bella? Are you interested in the movie, Beautiful Creatures currently in theaters? If answered yes to any of these questions, you should absolutely see this movie. If you have read the book by Stephanie Meyer, this movie better be number one on your list.

Who to take: When I endured a Twilight Saga opening night, I was immersed in teeny-boppers. Since Stephanie Meyer is responsible for Twilight and The Host, an I think this may be a ‘bring your kids’ kind of movie. People who enjoy supernatural beings, and a sci-fi romance should also go. The age level may vary with this movie compared to Twilight, bring anyone with an open mind!

When do you know a friendship can loom into a relationship?

Cupid’s Advice:

This type of relationship is the trickiest kind to get into. Turning a friendship into a relationship is more than challenging. The main dilemma here is if the relationship fails, your friendship is gone. And if you’re considering getting into a relationship with your friend, they are definitely one of the best. Although this may be a sticky situation, there are many ways where a friendship can blossom into a relationship. Cupid has some advice:

1. Love: Love is everywhere you go. In super markets, restaurants, movie theaters, work places, the park, dinner table, almost everywhere you look. This being said, it is not uncommon that you fall into love with your best friend. If you have fallen into love with one of your friends, and wish for it to turn into a relationship, make sure it is real love. Don’t think it’s love because they are around all the time or you tell them everything. Make sure you can’t spend a day without them and wish to be with them romantically.

2. Subtle hints: If you do want to turn a friendship into a relationship, you need to know if the other person feel the same way. If they already drop hints, such as, casual touches, strong eye contact, constant blushing; they may feel the same way. If they don’t, than you need to drop these hints and see how they react to them. This reaction will determine whether or not you can turn your friendship into a full blown relationship!

3. No change: A great thing with turning a friendship to a relationship is how little change there will be. Obviously you both will now be involved romantically. However, you two most likely already know every little thing about each other, have a routine, nick names, favorite restaurants. You and your mate do not have to worry about meeting each others parents because you already did! The relationship would be effortless since you both are already comfortable with one another!
