Oh jeez, I'm tearing up. This video really hit me  For those of you who have experienced a breakup, how did you get over your first love?  10 months after my breakup, and my ex and I haven't spoken in months and I still can't get over him aha  Sometimes I wish that I had never fallen in love because it wasn't worth the pain of a heartbreak

We fall in love because that feeling is greater than heartbreak. No matter how bad it hurts.

I remember my ex gf showed me this video to warned me to not let this happen to us. We were together for 2years and a half. We reached level 5 & 6. we stayed in level 5&6 we are strangers again till this day. She has somebody else the keeps a smile on her face. I wish on the day it ended I would of watched this video again to prevent it. I wonder if I would ever see this stranger again and have a tomorrow with her. I'm sorry

I totally can relate too. basically once you start taking the ppl in your life for granted, like disregarding what they say and think, and not thinking about them as much as you should, any sort of relationship you have with them will likely go downhill from there. between besties and boyfies alike

I just broke up with my bf recently.. We were 2 years and a half together.. He was also my bestfriend and my soulmate.. We were so many times on the stage 4 and 5, even in the 6.. But somehow we always found a way to fix everything and be together again.. But now it's different.. Just a few days he told me that he doesn't love me anymore.. I still dont know why and how that happened.. Right now we are still talking.. Im trying to be ok but I still cant believe what happened.. Its like everything is just a dream.. He told me he is not happy with or without me .. He was just tired of being always on stage 5.. Now I'm still trying to get him back to me.. Maybe is not the best option but a little part of me is pushing me to keep fighting for him.. I wish I had a time machine to go back and do the things that I'm doing now for him .. Because now I realize nothing is working cause it's too late.. :'( Apreciate what you have right now before it's gone..

+Jessica Marie the thing is i do appreciate him. I constantly tell him that i love him and everything he does i will thank him so he feels appreciated. i text him good morning and goodnight everyday and make sure he knows i think about him very single day. Whenever he feels down and sad and stressed due to work i always try my best to comfort him, to make sure he knows he is not alone in this. but at the end of the day, all i get was sometimes cold response and loving the next, barely hear from him, no effort from him anymore. and at last " I love you but the feelings wasnt the same like last time". we have been a little more than 2 and a half year and while he is out there feeling nothing, while i am here and i feel everything. So tell me Jessica, what can i do?...What can i do to heal?

This video is so realistic and I really liked the acting between the two leads. They were great and Cathy is really cute and pretty! I was in a relationship for 6 years and that's basically exactly what had happened lol Once it gets to the tolerance stage, it's pretty much done. Some couples can fix it and pull through, but that takes so much energy and effort, not saying it won't work, I just don't think it's worth it sometimes. Once you know it's over, just leave...don't drag it out and have it linger...you'll just be lonelier that way. I wish I had ended it earlier instead of dragging out the tolerance stage but I guess you live and you learn.

I remember watching this video back in high school (Grade 11, I was 17 years old) when my [now] ex-boyfriend broke up with me because he was "confused." I reblogged this video from someone on Tumblr, then he reblogged it from me. The next day, he came to my house and apologized, and I gave him another chance. After a few days or a few weeks, we watched this video together and talked about the part whether we would break up or get married. I don't remember what we said to each other though. It was a good relationship in the first 3 years. I really love him, but it came to a point where it didn't really feel like we were making more of an effort to make our relationship better, and to make each other better people. I started losing feelings in the beginning of last year... It was my fault too, since I got emotionally drained in the very beginning of our relationship. We were together for almost 4 years, but then we broke up in mid-December 2014. We stayed as friends for a bit, but I completely cut off contact with him in the beginning of this year. It hurt a lot, but I want and need to prioritize myself. It was very painful and I cried a lot. I felt so sad and lonely, worthless, and I felt that a part of me went missing. Honestly, I teared up by the end of this video. I still really miss him, but I don't want to go back to him just because of the familiarity. I need to focus on myself; to forgive myself (and him) for the mistakes that I've (and he's) done, and to love myself before getting into another relationship. It's going to take a while, but I'll take my own time in being single and building a stronger relationship with myself. I've been training myself to focus on the present moment. At times, I wonder about what he's thinking/doing and if he wonders the same thing about me, but I'm trying not to focus on that because it doesn't help me to let go and move on completely. I'll always love him and care about him though, no matter the circumstances. He's always going to have a special place in my heart. I hope he's doing well, even if I don't cross his mind anymore. To anyone who's going through a break up right now, you WILL get through it. It takes time, but use the time to take care of yourself. I'm still in the process of moving on, but I do feel better than the last time. The moments of relapse will happen often, but it's okay because it just means your feelings are as genuine as they could ever be. Love is the most beautiful gift in the world, but it's also the most painful feeling. The learning experiences are what makes it unique because you come out as a better version of yourself.

Call me a girly man but this one made me wanna cry over my ex, i held it in though, the hard thing is that i will be seeing her for the first time in nearly two yrs this friday and im not sure how we'll both feel towards each other when we see each other again for the first time in two yrs, The last time she saw me i was 245lbs now i am 164lbs.

The ending is really ambiguous. Did they break up or not? I think Wong Fu really let it up to the audience (if you ignore commentary). He said in the video they were near the end of stage 6 and stage 7 is the break up and technically Phil is talking (assuming) in the present. Which means that the two have not yet broken up. You have 3 options: 1) You can assume that the break up process and everything after was actually in his head and that Phil actually ran to her car.  2) You can assume that they truly broke up (which doesn't make sense if he's talking in the present) and running to her car was what Phil imagined.  3) You can assume that they are still together but near the end of stage 6 (AS STATED, and Phil imagined the aftermath), but he also imagined running to her car.

It's inevitable. It's what we experience as being human. Like going through the 5 stages of depression, vice versa to the 5 stages of a relationship. 1. Denial and Isolation 2. Anger 3. Bargaining 4. Depression 5. Acceptance But we all happen to move on.

around this time, 4 years ago, my ex and i broke up, and this video was released. I was in shambles and didnt know how to handle myself or make sense of the situation. I would watch this video over and over again to find any sort of direction. Whether or not i found any answers, this video struck a cord in me that pretty much told me I was going to be ok. I happily in love again. I watch this every so often and it makes me think of my ex. I dont miss her or anything, but it reminds me of how i was and i tell myself today to not be that guy.  Thanks Wongfu for this amazing production, even 4 years later today.

I'm hoping that the couple in the video fight for their love for each other. Coz it's normal to argue in a relationship. You should value what you've got when you got them. If she's really that worthy to you find ways to fix the relationship and don't throw it away. Coz the smile on your girls face depends on how you treat her. 😊

Why do so many people not see the last stages coming and do something about it? My personal opinion is that we are lazy. We want everything to always be peaches and cream all the time and life is not like that. If we would stop expecting relationships to always be like the Honeymoon stage we could handle the other stages when they come, in fact we could avoid ever getting to the latter stages if we were willing to do the work during the earlier stages.. Like I said this is just my opinion, but that is what I got from this video. No effort is made after the butterflies have gone away. If you don't work at something it won't work for you.

+4daluvofnikki You're right but sometimes things just don't work out whether its a relationship, business, friendship, etc. Thats when you learn to let go, which is something we should all experienced and learnt. I believed its the timing thats important and like you said, its better that we do the work at earlier stages before the thing gets worse. But hey this is life we talking about, you can't see everything coming and thats what make us human. :) Just my opinion.

I first watched this when I was 11, I never really thought about break ups or anything because well I was 11. Now that I'm 15 and I have experienced a heart break just recently, I came again to watch this video, Strangers Again. The girl I was with I always had a crush on her since I was 11, small to say the least but when highschool started she and I got closer as we were both on the same wrestling team. I immediately started going crazy for her and she decided to give me a chance. We went on movie dates, she spent the night a couple times, she was everything I could ever want. She's the most beautiful girl I could ever have.. Flash forward a couple months she shows me this video, asking me if I've seen it. Immediately I say if we watch this together I'm going to cry. We watch it and of course I cry and hold on to her, and she says I won't let this happen to us. We get into this argument and she says we're closing in on step six. We fight and argue but eventually it ends up happy again. On the last day of school for my Freshman year, when the bell rings, I immediately find her and pick her up and twirl her around, saying BREEZE ITS SUMMER!! ( the beautiful girl was named Breeze) We were so happy we run home so we can start planning on what we would like to do. A month in she has to leave because of her job where she is stationed in Juneau for a youth corp job. She doesn't have any time to talk to me, but meanwhile I have all day, I get depressed because she was my world and I won't be able to talk to her for a month. When she does finally come back, she can only stay for 4 days and spends 2 days with me, she says she loves me and told me to wait another two weeks till August and I'll see her again.. A week into waiting she breaks up with me, she says she wants to explore and not settle down so early and that's how it feels being with me. I miss her so so much and if she does ever see this comment, I love you Breeze and you'll always have a place in my heart. So now I'm sitting outside alone watching this video trying to cope and this is the only way it's helping. I'm seeing this in an entirely different perspective, Thank you Wong Fu for making this film.

It's been 4 years but still I'm watching this. I'm typical kinda guy who always end up like this. Haist! (deep breathing) coz they always asked me to marry me or break up with me. I feel like I have no choice at all. If I stay, its like nagging feelings anymore not happiness like it used to be. Getting married at an early stage is ridiculous. Can't you wait?... So this is the reason why I end up like this most of the time.

Two months have passed already and I'm still struggling to move on because I have still feelings for her. For now, I need words of advice to help me out here please...

This video is so accurate and helped me to understand why me and my ex girlfriend broke up, she never really gave me a reason and just left me confused. I wish that I watched this video before we broke up because I just decided to let her go and I didn't fight. I just wanted her to be happy whether with me or someone else but I forgot about my own happiness. I hope you continue to create videos with such powerful meanings. Thank you

That will always happen if people see love only as something emotional.  In my belief, love is a commitment and a choice.  You can CHOOSE to love even when it's not as romantic and full of emotions as you want. Once, you do that, it's called "True love".

I'm just gonna take a step back and see what he gonna do I hope from all my heart we not gonna end up as strangers .. I hope he just do something for me because I'm tired from having everyone around me except him .. Tired from watching my phone and wish he gonna send me something ....

Can I ask why you can't try? Try to send him a message, try to video chat him, try to call him. You never know if he is feeling the same way you are feeling. Let him know what you're feeling. Communication is still key even if you are in long distance. Hope it works out :)

Thanks for this awesome short film. me and my ex broke up 1 year ago, and now I am still not over her. each time I sent her a text message, I really hate myself because I know she won't reply anyways. we had been together 3 almost 4 years, in other words, it took us almost 4 years to reach the end of stage 7 . sadly, I am also going through the same situation the guy in the film after the break up. When I miss her, I'd go through pictures of her. Also I constantly recall the memories we shared once. But the good part is, this film taught me how priceless the memories me and my ex share. In here, I wish she still remembers the good time back then.

Well i was together with this one guy.. but we weren't exactly together. Unofficial and even though we haven't became official we spent 5 months together.  At some point my parents found out and tried pulling us apart. Even if they tried, we promised to never fall out of love and to continue to love each other no matter the distance. (It was summer at the time) I had to spend 1 month without contacting him and yes it was hard for both of us.  But I spent everyday believing him and trusting that he'll still wait for me.  By the time we returned to school I couldn't be happier but to see him again.  But one thing has changed.. the enthusiasm he used to have when he saw me..  I knew that this might just be the end of us.  I was scared and I feared this moment the most and it's happening right now. I talked to him the next day and he told me he doesn't know and he'll think about it.  We hugged for a while and I somehow started tearing up and crying silently.  He saw me cry and I guess he was flustered because he texted me and told me he wanted to see me after school. After school he said, "I thought about it and... damn I don't even know what to say. Give me time over the weekend and I'll think about it." All I said was an "Okay."  I went home that day with a heavy heart and cried in the shower and cried myself to sleep as well.  It's Saturday today and the only thing that occupied my mind was him.  I went through today thinking "It's going to be okay." and the other half is "doubt" and more tears.  I don't know what his answer will be but there is only two options, separation or reconciliation.  Monday is D-Day and I shouldn't keep any high hopes right now.  This is just something I wanted to share since bundling it up in myself was hard.
