Love Interest Part 3
Here is a quote from today's NY Daily News about the boyfriend of
Kate Upton. This quote is from
October, 2013, when they were dating. They have just broken up.
In looking at various "love interests" quotes, following an office
romance (which went South for the
love-lorn male, as many commentators said it would), looking at
how words change and reveal what
may be inside the heart of the subject.
Here, the boyfriend speaks of happier times, but note the change
from "person" to "girl."
What changed her from being a gender-free "person", to the
specific "girl" (and not woman).
There is far more in this quote than some may think. The key is
listening. Listen to the additional
words he uses:
"She's an amazing person.
We have an incredible time together, and you know, I
definitely didn't see that coming and I
think neither did she. We enjoy each other's company very
much and like I said, she's a
great girl that I never thought anything romantic like this
could have happened."
