There’s a reason the 2015 rom-com Trainwreck starring the hilarious and beautiful comedienne Amy Schumer has been nominated for over a dozen awards, including 2 Golden Globes. Between its ultimate relatability (Amy Schumer is us, we are Amy Schumer everyday) and insane quotability, it’s everything we’ve ever wanted in a movie. And in addition to being low-key hilarious (meaning, the humor is not overdone or poorly timed), the movie also has a great plotline about a realistic woman who struggles to accept the love she deserves in this 21st century dating mess. So while our favorite parts were probably the more humorous ones, there are quite a few lessons in dating we’ve also taken away and taken to heart. Read on to see a few of them, and if you haven’t seen the film yet, check it out! (Lebron James is surprisingly a natural at acting. And not bad on the eyes, either).

 

1. You can be in a relationship with a really great guy and it still might not work out.

You’re just not meant for each other. No sense in forcing something that’s just not there.

 

2. There is no such thing as walk of a shame.

Not even a ferry of shame.

 

3. Sometimes you just really gotta let someone go.

Especially if they’re in jail. You will find good sex again.

 

4. Don’t lie about who you are and what you know.

You’re not fooling anybody!

 

5. Date someone who is not afraid to disagree with you.

But will still hear you out and respect your opinion.

 

6. Date someone who will be your voice of reason.

7. But will still let you have fun, anyway.

8. Monogamy is realistic!

Just not for everyone. But don’t condemn yourself to a certain lifestyle if you’re unsure of what you really want.
