Ryan Gosling
by Alex Andy Phuong

Within The Notebook, there is an interesting story about an ordinary man named Ryan Gosling that might be somewhat melancholic.  His best friend, Sebastian, asked him, “Are You Afraid of the Dark?”  Ryan was not afraid, of course, but he did feel like a Blue Valentine after breaking up with his girlfriend.  The breakup with Emma broke Ryan’s heart, but he simply reminded himself that the real world is not La La Land.  His relationship faltered on The Ides of March, but Ryan was determined to move on through personal motivation and Drive.  Sebastian asked Ryan if he wanted to be the First Man at Sebastian’s wedding to his fiancÚ named Mia, and Ryan was more than happy to do so simply because Ryan was one of The Nice Guys.  Relationships might have given Ryan Gosling Goosebumps, but that is simply the nature of Crazy, Stupid, Love.
