There’s nothing like a good movie. Better yet, there’s nothing like a good Rom-Com. Hey, if you’re a hopeless romantic like me and you love to laugh, they are literally the best movie genre ever. No debate. The romantic comedy flooding everyone’s timelines as of late is Netflix’s Someone Great and there is literally someone talking about how great this movie is all over every social media platform. While Netflix movies can be hit or miss, let me tell y’all… this one here does not disappoint.
The movie is about a young music journalist Jenny (Gina Rodriguez) dealing with a breakup with a long-time boyfriend and one last adventure in New York City with her besties before moving to San Francisco for a new job opp. Mixed with the perfect balance of laughs and tears, this is one of the best rom-coms I’ve seen a while. I will forewarn you though— if you have ever experienced a breakup at any point of your life, you.will.cry. watching this. Have your Kleenex on deck.
Beyond the roller coaster of emotions this tear-jerker will have you go through, there were quite a few life lessons about breakups I learned from this movie. Here ya go.
Blessing in disguise, sometimes.
Friends. How many of us have them?

More life. Fulfilled.
Someone Great was the movie I NEEDED to see. Finallllyyyy a movie that doesn’t have the cliche “happy” ending with the boy at the end. Nope. Your best friends, career, and other blessings are enough for a fulfilling life 10/10— Naomi (@naomiipc) April 29, 2019
It’s easier said than done, but necessary.
The movie “someone great” on Netflix is the perfect reminder of how to not lose yourself in someone else. I refuse to ever let that happen again… good movie tho 10/10— Jadah 👅 (@jadahhh_faithhh) April 29, 2019
A broken heart + a movie with a girl’s heart being broken right before your eyes = anxiety and continued heartbreak. Ouch.
if u currently have a broken heart pls do NOT watch someone great until you’re emotionally ready bc I just ugly cried and got my heart stomped on— izzy (@yzzibae) April 30, 2019
Not totally related to breakups but worth mentioning that before this movie, I would have never looked twice at LaKeith, but after this movie he is totally bae. Maybe your ‘next’ is found in someone totally opposite of your type. Take the risk.
Ever since watching Someone Great, Lakeith Stanfield is my new favorite person😍 pic.twitter.com/2zurZui8cU— Stephanie💜 (@stephtiahra) May 5, 2019
Not only is it okay, but it’s healthy. Being realistic about the state of the relationship is necessary for moving forward. Make peace with it. Move on. You’re worth it.
Just as I’m healing, Netflix’s Someone Great broke me & healed me all over again— You (@tanialeoss) April 28, 2019
“I met you when everything was new and exciting & the possibilities of the world seemed endeless. & they still are. For you, for me, but not for us… I guess we didn’t just grow apart, we grew up.” pic.twitter.com/2MWpt4pwm3
If you haven’t watched Someone Great, call up a bestie and set a date. Some good ole’ tears and laughs are good for the soul.
