Strangers, again

by Wong Fu Productions • 15,525,460 views

We're making a movie! Help make it happen here: http://wongfuproductions.com/movie BEHIND THE SCENES & DIRECTOR'S COMMENTARY http://wongfuproductions.com/2011/04/strangers-again-new-short-film/...

On this day, "Strangers, again" is 3 years old. It's incredible to see how viewers are still responding to it, and how it's affected peoples' lives over this time. Watching it now, compared to back then, many of you have a new understanding of the same video. Our work evolves as you do, and that's really amazing to us.

It's been a month since since I broke up with my first girlfriend. What sucks is that while I kept on falling for her, she came to the realization that she didn't feel the same way towards me. We're still friends, and I'm really glad we are. However, ever since she broke up with me, I always feel this emptiness that I want to fulfill. I still really like her a lot, but time will tell what will happen. I'm only 17, so it's not the end of the world.

wtf im going through the exact same situation dude. She broke up with me but I still like her just as much while she seems to have forgotten about me. Every moment I want her back but she just wants to be friends. before my first relationship I never realized how much breakups hurt. I don't know what to fking do anymore but just glad there are other people who have gone through the same shit, and I wish for you the best dude

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. These videos always hit me where it hurts the most. the good thing is that i will see my kids again for the first time also. Great job guys, I love these videos.

So cheer up my friend theres nothing you can do to fix the past, but only learn from it and make sure you dont make the same mistake again. It is what is. Things happen for a reason,so dont give up and keep going. Im stronger now because of it.

I remember watching this video when it came out. At the time my boyfriend and I were together 3 years going on 4, and we talked about his we'd never get to tolerable, how we've always worked on our relationship and we would keep working at it. Well somehow this past year we started tolerating eachother. And before I knew it we reached the last two stages almost all at once. Last night, after 5 years and 3 months, he decided it was too routine, and he didn't want to continue on, or even try fixing it. And it ended. And all I could think about was this video. I don't know what's in store for us now, but rewatching this has both caused me to sob uncontrollably, and give me some type of reassurance that things will be alright eventually. ;)

Okay guys.  Youtube brainstorm.  I have a story idea where this high schooler is the literal embodiment of karma.  He feels every effect he has on others himself.  I can't get a good arc going.  Does he meet a girl who he knows likes him, except they have never spoken together, does he meet another person with his ability, does he lose it and discover he can't feel emotion himself, or actually wants the ability back... I'm only in middle school and am not good at taking ideas to the next level. Reply with your thoughts!
Report spam or abuse
In my opinion you should go with "he loses it and discovers he can't feel emotion himself". This idea seems like it could turn into a deep and meaningful story. You could combine the idea of the girl who likes him and the he can't feel emotions himself idea for an even better story. But you'd have to be good at making an interesting plotline and ending otherwise the readers will get bored. I am also in the midst of writing a story and as long as you're good at writing the actual story ( the words in the story, not just the ideas) then you're off to a great start.

I remember watching this video 2 years ago, and then a year ago and now today. This video helped my ex and I get back together after our first break up, and then a few times after the second break up because we didn't want to become "strangers, again." Although, nothing could help us get back together the third time, I hope 15:00 to the end, applies to us someday. Thank you for making this video. Seriously, It means so much to me.

holy shit, the beginning of the argument sounded so familiar...sounded like arguments I've had. but After 6 years, I'm still with my crazy yet lovely gf. here's probably why though... When I argue with my GF, no matter what happens, we never forget that we love each other. If we argue about something stupid we don't agree on, I've learned there's no point in trying to win. It's better to accept that we have different views. If it's a serious fight, one thing I've learned is that you can't be selfish. You have to understand that the relationship is not about what you get out of it, it's also about what your partner needs too. If anyone is selfish, things will never be fixed. teens in particular are so self-centered that many of them fixate on what they're getting, they never bend  over backwards to understand their partner's needs. that lack of maturity is one of the reasons why teen relationships don't last long.  It's pretty easy to fall into a routine, but one thing I've learned that is that you really do stop doing things to win her after a while.  I've learned to understand that you have to let your girlfriend know that you still cherish her and appreciate what she is to you. let her know she's beautiful. If you truly love her, you'll feel the same warmth she feels when you see how much you lighten her heart with endearing gestures.

So awhile back, me and my girl had broke up due to the loss of feelings after being out with her for over 2 years. Ever since then til now, I'm still in love with her. I know, I'm young and I have a whole life ahead of me. I urges to text and call her just to talk to her, hear her voice, and have our laughter. She's someone I see myself to be with and grow a life together. Lately, it seems like she's interested in someone else. It hurts me, but seeing her happy and smiling is what means the most to me. She's someone I can count on when my days are low and can lift me back up on my feet. Most people tell me to move on and you can do better. But it's difficult to move on when someone like her as become a big impact in my life that I don't ever wanna let go of. I miss her dearly and it's difficult to move on from.

Hey there. I watched this video when it came out in 2011. I was touched, moved and thought I had understood the film's meaning. Fast forward to now, 2015. I recently broke up with my 1 year old girlfriend, 2 year old best friend. She was amazing, we connected on so many levels and although she was my first, I knew she was "The One". We eventually broke it off, but we were only at the "comfortable" stage, I was still trying my hardest to keep things fresh, exciting and she did as well. However, she started thinking a lot and compared our relationship to that of other couples - which resulted in a lot of overthinking and feelings of hatred towards herself... All of this? Led to her diminishing feelings for me as a whole. It has been almost 2 months since we split, we still keep in contact (very minimal, just texting) but I know she is over me. I wish there was some way we could really be "Strangers, again", and I could chase her again, be close to her again. I don't miss the familiarity of us. I miss her. I really do. J, if you ever do come across this, please know that at some point in your life, there was a guy who would have loved you for the rest of his life, no questions asked. When I watched this again, I cried, it sent chills down my spine because it hit every nerve of my body, almost like a reflux action. It speaks to me, a little too much.

Same here. I didn't think this would ever happen to me either.  My ex boyfriend and I were high school sweet hearts and we were together for 10+ years.  It's been 4 months since the break up and I finally feel like I'm getting my life back together.  Be strong and know that time will heal all wounds.

It's been over a year since my ex-girlfriend and I broke up. We had been dating for two years. We started off just like this video, crazy about each other; we couldn't hang out enough and we did everything together. Let's just say it wasn't always easy once when we got to Stage 5, like many others we fought a lot, and we broke up about 13 months into our relationship, a few months later, after Stage 6 and 7. She found somebody for a temporary time, pretty quickly. It destroyed me seeing her with someone else so soon. I think here's what makes my story different from (some but not all) others: we got back together. We had like a whole new cycle, we got a second honeymoon stage, I call it the "OMG we're back together" stage. We had pretty much the same stages but they passed by a lot faster, at least it seemed like that. Before I knew it, I found us at the later stages, again. I saw our relationship deteriorate for the second time, and that's when I found this video. I watched. I watched it again. Then, I sent it to my (at the time) girlfriend and she loved it too but she said it wouldn't happen to us, but I didn't feel comforted. Finally, we reached the end of Stage 6 and entered Stage 7. Those months following was the hardest time of my life, I tried getting her back a couple times but she said that no matter how much we talk over things and vow to change things, it never makes a difference. "We don't work out", as she put it. After months of pain and crying I finally started moving on, and we both found new people to be with. I started out by just hooking up with one of my best friends (she's a girl), which turned into something a bit bigger. We had an unofficial relationship; we hung out, hooked up, and did a lot of relationship-type things, but I never asked her to be my girlfriend. I kept telling my (guy) best friend, that I could see myself fall for this new girl, but it never happened. I liked her a lot as a person, and I did care about her, but something didn't feel right. Now it's been about 9 months, but I don't feel that way about her, I'm not attracted to her, and I don't see her as more than a friend. Now, here I am. I found this video again. The video has never felt this real to me, so real and so true. The video shocked me this time, because I also kept a box full of things of my ex-girlfriend, and inside there's an anniversary letter. I've also "moved on", but it hasn't gotten me very far, despite having a "sort of" relationship for close to a year, I'm back where I started. I sometimes see my ex with her new boyfriend, and it's weird. Someone once told me, "you never fully get over someone". Lately, I've been thinking about my ex a lot, not necessarily because I want her back, but because I've been looking for what I had with her, and I've not found it. I love this video, especially after all this time and seeing it be so accurate. Thank you.

What you said is so dramatically true, we can't even imagine how our biological nature affects our relationships! I totally understand and agree with what you say here.

Why is the end-all-be-all marriage? My boyfriend and I have discussed marriage and we're simply okay not being married, if ever. We don't need to be, if we love each other. We don't need to decide between breaking-up and marrying. Marriage isn't for a relationship. It's for our relatives and reduced taxes, haha. 
Report spam or abuse
I think what they mean by the two choices is you can either break up with that person or you spend the rest of your life with them. You're right you don't have to get married but yeah.

unfortunately, i can relate to this so much. my ex-girlfriend (and first true love) was amazing, she means more to me than anything else, but unfortunately our relationship started to crumble. at first it was just these small things that happened that made me think she didn't love me, like she would never say "i love you" when other people were around, "is she embarrassed to be with me?", i thought. of course, i ended up asking her whether she loved me, and she said she did, but i didn't feel she meant it, the response was like, "of course i do". then one day she started criticising the stuff i did which affected her, and it really hurt me. my thoughts of her not loving me began to solidify. I confronted her about it and she said she'd been feeling so depressed lately, but she wouldn't tell me why, trust is part of love, so again with the not loving me. eventually i just cracked and started doing the same to her. i still loved her, but it was almost just instinctive at that point to treat her that way. we grew further apart and started arguing over the stupidest of things until one morning after an argument the night before, i decided it would be best if we broke up and gave her the option of doing so, as earlier when she first started criticising me i remember thinking, "how can you be so mean to someone you love", so i just felt it was morally wrong to continue treating her this way, and by this time i'd just given up on trying to fix things, as she never tried to fix things.. again, because she didn't love me??? she agreed to break up, but i was so distraught, i felt i couldn't keep in contact with her and she understood. there were so many things left unsaid by me, like she probably thought i just didn't love her anymore, and i couldn't stop thinking of her in my every waking moment that following week. eventually i caved in and talked to her, and she seemed happy to see me, but even though i wanted to talk about fixing our relationship so much, we weren't even in one, so we were just friends for a while, and we were both nice to each other. several days later though, she said some stuff to me which wasn't bad at all, but i interpreted it as her mocking and criticising me, because of past experiences. "friends don't do that to friends" i thought, "so i guess we aren't even friends" and i stopped trying to start conversations with her, and when talked to me i just gave her minimal responses. the last time we talked was the first of november when she asked if i wanted to play a game of league with some of her friends. i semi-reluctantly said yes because i didn't think it was smart to say yes (responding to her no more than 15 seconds after she asked), but surely enough, a few minutes later, she says, "oh sorry some random joined, i was afk". and by this point i'm thinking, "so, if you wanted to actually play with me, then start a new game? she must just be using me to fill a spot and let her start the game", so i said, "wow, thanks" and we haven't spoken since. I still can't stop thinking about her, and if i think about her too much i just break down in tears, but i feel it's a lost cause, she's probably moved on,  and honestly i'll never be good enough for her, or maybe any girl, so now i'm just gonna try and focus on my last year of  school (my future), and hope that one day i'll forget her. it's not that i want to forget her, but hey, what else can i do. i still don't know whether to try talking to her or not, i really want to try and make things work, but i don't know if she's willing to do the same. i figure if she loves me, she'll try talking to me, but she might think i don't want to talk to her and that i hate her. it's tough. oh well, i guess i'll never know if she did love me, all i know is that i do and probably always will love her even if i do eventually end up forgetting her. <3

Its either you were just so insecure back then or she probably love you but not in the way you wanted. But either way, just try to move on. Mostly relationship work this way, once it was broken and you try to get back together for second chance, you will fall for the same problem all over again. But hey, its my opinion. I wish a very best of you. And sorry for my english, its not my main languange.

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.
