(insects buzzing) ♪ Growing older ♪ ♪ Older together ♪ ♪ Growing older ♪ – [Jess] How was work? – I’m so tired. I officially hate coffee. – You know you could just quit. – Yeah, I don’t wanna work for your dad. How many times do I have to tell you? – [Jess] It doesn’t have to be permanent, but he’s already said he would
work around design school. – Can we just drop it? Thanks. I don’t even know if I wanna
go to design school anymore. – Since when? – [Libby] We can talk about it later. I have to take a shower if we’re going to this
fucking engagement party. (shower running) (shower stopping) – Fuck. – Here. – Libby? – [Libby] Yeah? – First it was getting
your master’s degree in women’s studies. Then it was teaching inner-city schools, then it was writing a novel. Then after extensive conversations and lengthy applications, and deposits, it was design school. Now it’s what, Starbucks management track? – [Libby] I said I don’t
want to talk about it yet. – [Jess] Well I do. – [Libby] I need to get ready. – You look fine in the dress
you have on, Elizabeth. – [Libby] It doesn’t feel like me. – [Jess] You’ve had that dress for years. – Yeah, well, it doesn’t
look like me anymore. I used to look better in this dress. – Are you going to tell
me what’s going on? – Nothing, I’m just, I’m just tired. And I need some space. Can I get dressed in peace,
or do you need to hover? – I’m trying to have a
conversation with you. Do you want me to help you
get dressed so we can talk? – [Libby] I don’t need
help picking out a dress. I’ve been wearing dresses my whole life. I think I can figure it out just fine on my own, thank you. – Why do you have this, Libby? – So now you’re going through my stuff? – For fuck sake, why do you have this? – A guy at work was flirting with me. He must have stuck it in my
bag as a suggestive joke. Nothing happened. I don’t even like the guy. – Do you think I’m an idiot? – What? You don’t think
someone would flirt with me? Sometimes it’s nice to
have attention from a man. – [Jess] That’s what this is about? – It’s not that simple. – I’m trying to have a
conversation with you. What else do you miss? – We are going to be late. – What else do you miss? You miss feeling validated? You miss feeling pretty? You miss being the center of attention, that’s what this is about? – You know what I miss? Jess? I miss the smell of your cologne. How it would, always stay on the sheets
after you took a nap. I miss the bulk of your weight,
pressing against me, making me feel safe. I miss, I miss your stubble. And how it would always turn my
nose pink after we made out. I miss fucking. I’m sorry, but I do. I miss being fucked but really, by a man. And I – I don’t know. There, do you feel better now? But nothing happened, really. Nothing happened. It was just a fantasy. I still had some. And I just put it in my bag. (heavy breathing) – [Jess] Do you still love me? – That has nothing to do with it. – Look at me. I know things haven’t been
perfect, I know there are things that you miss, but
you can’t keep changing your mind every five minutes
whether you’re in this or not. – I have been in this
since we were 16, Jess. I was there. For all of it. Hormones, surgery, name change. Therapy, appointments, so, so many fucking appointments, and I was there for all of it. That’s not what this is about. – You don’t love me anymore. – [Libby] God, nothing happened. – That’s not what I’m saying. I’m not talking about
him, I’m talking about me. – It’s not about you, Jess! For once, it is not about you. Or him. It’s me. It’s about me. I just. I feel so goddam lost
in this relationship. We’ve been so busy building your identity, we forgot mine altogether. I don’t know who I am
outside of you anymore. – What do you need? I don’t know. Time, maybe. Can you give me that? – [Jess] How much time, Libby? – That is not fair. That is not fair of you to ask. I gave you 12 years, Jess. I still love you. So fucking much. But I don’t think I can do this anymore. – Here. Close your eyes. – I’m sorry. – I don’t want to poke you in the eye. (laughing) (crying) I’m afraid you are my one and only shot. But maybe that’s not enough of a reason.

  2. this really opens your eyes about changes to every people's lives. it's hard sometimes. i guess we also just need to learn how to accept it and everything needs time.

  3. My Comment is in the Pinned post and please be Respectful .I noticed people not knowing what to say .If you are in any long term relationship especially from a young age .it doesnt matter your sexual orientation.

  4. Truly awful. May the forces pushing this on the nation's youth be confused, scattered, distracted – stopped.

  5. Every couple has to face these moments and decide if they are going to stay together or part ways.

  6. Oh how the prophesies come to fruition. This should not be normalized. Idc I have a friend transitioning and tell him it's a sin and he is a "devout" Orthodox Jew. So laughable. He knows he is sinning against God and still does it. The Bible written so long ago and here we are still ignoring God's Word.

    Romans 1:26-27
    King James Bible
    For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature
    And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

  7. My advice to them would be to stay together. They have a love and an understanding of each other that they are unlikely to find elsewhere.

    It is reasonable for the one to want a man. I would not recommend a completely open relationship, nor would I recommend a three way relationship with some guy moving in, but I would recommend that she be allowed to have the occasional man under terms and rules that the two of them can agree on.

  8. Some one used heart wrenching to describe this video. I quite agree. Sometimes loving someone just isn't enough to keep a relationship alive.

  10. Wow. This was an excellent, hypnotic piece of film-making. It held me spell-bound for 13 minutes and thirty-four seconds. It was adventurous and emotional, beautiful and real.

  11. I don't blame her..If she started with a man that changed and she wants a man…let her be with a man. They just aren't meant for each other.

  12. Wow.. My father who passed away 2 years ago, was a post op transgender. It's hard to say father and she.. But I was there through the entire transition. Everyone else left. EVERYONE. And it was really hard
    His ex girlfriend was there through a lot of it.. Just like this girl.. But she ended up leaving. She wasn't a lesbian. And my parent, Tina, formerly Chris, ended up in total regret of the decision. See… For those who truly are transgender, it isn't a choice. This film touched my heart in a way most people will never understand. β€πŸ’§πŸ’”Rest in peace daddy Tina.
