My Favorite Monologue

"I came to this on my terms, you know? I didn’t just heed what I was taught. Men and women should be together, it’s the natural way- that kind of thing. I’m not with you because of what family, society, life tried to instill in me from day one. The way the world is- how seldom it is that you meet that one person who just gets you...it’s so rare. My parents didn’t really have it. There were no examples set for me in the world of male/female relationships. And to cut oneself off from finding that person- to immediately half your options by eliminating the possibility of finding that one person within your own gender...that just seemed stupid to me. So I didn’t. But then you come along. You- the one least likely; I mean, you were a guy. And while I was falling for you, I put a ceiling on that, because you were a guy. Until I remembered why I opened the door to women in the first place- to not limit the likelihood of finding that one person who’d compliment me so completely. And so here we are. I was thorough when I looked for you, and I feel justified lying in your arms- because I got here on my terms, and I have no question that there was someplace I didn’t look. And for me, that makes all the difference." -Joey Lauren Adams, Chasing Amy
