Strangers, again

by Wong Fu Productions • 15,860,740 views

Our movie 'Everything Before Us' is now available for PRE-ORDER here! https://vimeo.com/ondemand/everythingbeforeus Please support! BEHIND THE SCENES & DIRECTOR'S COMMENTARY...

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.

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 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. ;)

+MELANIEroseJ what about now? after 5 months?

The guy I fell in love with was my best friend for 3 years. Our personalities were the mirror image of each other and we understood each other better than anyone else. That's what made it so hard when I lost him. It was like losing a part of myself. We had both recently admitted that we were in love with each other. Less than 2 months later, he told me he had fallen for someone else and thought that we should just remain friends and nothing more. I was hurt and enraged that he would choose someone he just met over me, especially so soon after expressing his "true" feelings for me. We never spoke again. The short-lived romance of it sounds like something that happens in middle school, but he was 25 at the time. Old enough to have known better. I've had other relationships since, but none of them have ever come close to the quality of relationship that I had with him. We were more than just romantic lovers; first and foremost, we were friends. That's what made it so special.

+TimeLapse54321 This really confuses me: why do people wait so long to go out even after both people say they like each other? What're they waiting for?

Nathalie, I'm so sorry I wasted your love for me. It's been a year now since we've become strangers to each other again. If only I never cowered back then... If only I fought for us... If only i wasn't scared of what others might say... We might've moved to stage 8: getting back up. I'm so sorry Nathalie. I'm so sorry...

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.

+ChallenComedy And you obviously and completely missed my point, too. I'm pretty sure the end-all-be-all goal for humans is to reproduce, that's why God promotes creating children, too.

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

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

Even though I've never been in a relationship (mostly because I'm still young), I still cried watching this video. It reminded me of the time I REALLY liked someone...someone who was like the other half of me, someone who was a missing part of me. I was always that cheerful, happy kid who would joke around, and try to lighten up the mood, and she was someone indescribable by words. Then, during what was becoming the most fun day I've ever had with my friends turned into the worst when I heard she was with someone else. I have to admit, when I heard the news, I could not blink for 10 minutes strait, and I was tearing up on the way back. Every time I watch this video, it reminds me of her, though it's silly to, because we were never in a relationship together. Oh, and her name? Coincidentally, it was Cathy~

+Azn117dude I think that this video can apply to any type of relationship that has had an impact on you, its definitely not silly to relate to it in this way. I've found that regardless of whether you're in a relationship or not having strong feelings towards someone can take as much time to get over too. Sorry for the sadness you experienced, but I'm glad you can look back at those memories in a positive light, as being really cheerful and happy :)

+Azn117dude yeah...  I can relate..... sigh why do I feel so sad and he's okay and moved on?  I haven't talked to him in almost a year....

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.

This is so accurate I watched this video when it was first uploaded and I was so scared this will happen to me and four years after I'm watching this video again and this is exactly what I went through just recently....

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.

Try talking to him about how you feel. Maybe you have a mature guy that will actually act on it. If not, maybe go new places, try new things. Those memories matter when you look back.

+carminaaa hi good to hear that you and your ex became friends after the break up so you did not went from strangers to strangers... my ex was also my bestfriend but sadly we parted ways and not communicating anymore.. maybe if ur still bestfriend there is a chance you will fall to each other again

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.

Had one really serious relationship where i was pretty much obsessed and clingy. Slowly it got to the point where i couldn't even go out with my friends due to the fear of losing her if i disappointed her. fast forward a year, I suddenly lost all of that and grew so cold. It ended, haven't been in a relationship since,I don't miss my ex either. Perfectly happy being single and having all the time i want in my life to do what i want. I just find relationships a total waste of time and energy at this point of my life, (21 year old). This video didn't hit any feels in me like the rest of the comments here, is it because i went through a really bad relationship that i presume all relationships to be so full of BS ? Am i gonna learn to be committed again? i still have a long time but i sure don't want to continue being this way coz i do want to get married to 'the one', only hoping i'll learn how to run a relationship.

This video is so about my last relationship that when I finished, I said 'wow, I've thought I was the only one to pass through all of this', and knowing there are more people who experienced something like that is so "grateful".  Sometimes I think dying is an effective way to stop the pain, but sometimes I think we could be together again, so I don't try stupid things. I dream about coming back to her, but is so hard to know better someone you already know. I want someday answer my own commentary saying 'we are together again and now it is forever'. I hope to do that someday, because I don't have more hope beyond that.

4 years ago when this video was made I didn't fully appreciate the detail that went through in its production.  Fast forward now and I'm going through the exact same feelings that the story is trying to convey.  It feels so real...trying to solve the problems until finally someone thinks the relationship involves too much effort.  Unfortunately he let me go.  Just one week ago he was the love of my life (and still is) but he no longer feels the same way about me.  Strangers, that's our new status.  Thanks again Wong Fu for making such a beautiful video..though somewhat too realistic lols

Still touches my heart every single time. To when this first came out to now, I'm still learning from this video. This helped me get over an 8 year relationship because I finally understood what I knew in my heart was the reasons why it failed. But this video continues to inspire me, to work harder at my relationship now, to not stop trying when the relationship and him are so important to me. Thank you Wong Fu, once again, for all your inspiring videos and not being afraid to bring these emotions to light when I know these feelings are what I'm always afraid to share.

I saw this video when it first came out, during a time when I was "single and ready to mingle". I just watched this video again for the first time in years, with my first love and first ex. We broke up a month ago and have been trying to figure out how to stay friends. I hadn't even met him when I first saw the video! This video hit so close to home, every single part of it. From the unicorn comment to the bit at the end. Thanks, Wong Fu, for making something that I can connect with so wholeheartedly. Yea, you made me bawl my eyes out, but you also made me laugh, both which I really needed today. And it really put things in perspective for my ex and I.

I've been single for about 4 months now. I find it funny how last year at this time, my ex was a stranger to me, and that we're strangers now again going forward. The irony of this video isn't lost on me, but I think the ending statement beautifully summarizes how to move forward at this point. You just have to be thankful that you got to share in something beautiful with someone else.

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. That's the same theory stated by John Gray with his "Mars and Venus" book series. Spread the word, man! Let's build a better, more balanced world ;)

This video meant so much to me. My ex boyfriend and I were together for almost two years. He broke up with me and I cried my eyes out. I just loved him so much he was my everything. We were good until we decided to live together. 3 months of living together we broke up. I cried and asked for a second chance. He said no but he told me he loved me. This was my first love ever his as well. I'm 22 and he's 25. I thought we would be together forever. We got our ring finger sized and even had a secret handshake. He was my best friend. I don't know when it went down hill but I wish I did. Our breakup is still fresh. It's been about a week. My phone is never has a phone call or text. Of course I was crazy in love and kicked him out the apartment because he broke up with me and I feel like that was the most horrible thing I did. He probably never wants to see my face again after that. His mom is mad at me for kicking him out and the breakup got bigger than it was. My family is involved and now his when this relationship is suppose to be about him and I but at the end of the day I still love him. He's my first love I can't forget him and I pray he doesn't forget me. I pray I made an impact on him and his life. I hope one day you read this. I love you J.M.P
