Men’s Pride part #01

 

Potongan cerita ini diambil dari salah satu film favorit saya

A Knigth’s Tale (2001)

Director: Brian Helgeland

Writer: Brian Helgeland

Stars:  Heath Ledger as William Thatcher, and Shannyn Sossamon as Jocelyn

William: I’m going to win this tournament for you

Jocelyn: Excuse me?

William: This tournament, I’ll win it in your name. Every knight I defeat, I defeat for you. Your beauty will be reflected in the power of my arm and the flank’s of my hourse. 

Jocelyn: Wow. Really? Really? It’s flanks? 

……….

William: Jocelyn, how may i prove my love to you? How?

Jocelyn: Do you ask in earnest?

William: Yes.

Jocelyn: If you would prove your love, you should do your worst.

William: My worst. What do you mean?

Jocelyn: Instead of winnging to honor me with your high reputation, i want you to act againts your normal character and do badly.

William: Do badly?

Jocelyn: Lose.

William: Losing proves nothing except that i’m a loser.

Jocelyn: Wrong. Losing is a much keener test of your love. Losing would contradict your self love, and losing would show your obedience to your lover and not to your self. 

William: REALLY!!

Jocelyn: What is your answer?

William: I will not lose!

Jocelyn: Then you do not love me. 

Walaupun William mengatakan kepada Jocelyn bahwa dia tidak akan mengalah, tapi sewaktu pertandingan dimulai, William diam saja menerima hantaman, mengalah. Bukti cintanya pada Jocelyn.

Pride, harga diri, itu adalah hal yang penting sekali bagi seorang pria. Saking pentingnya sampai-sampai wanita bingung kenapa pria segitu mati-matian mempertahankan harga dirinya. Teknik yang digunakan Jocelyn di atas dapat digunakan untuk membuktikan cinta seorang pria kepada sang wanita. Ketahui terlebih dahulu di mana letak harga diri paling tinggi si pria. Lalu minta si pria untuk bertindak melawan harga dirinya. It’s risky. Bisa menimbulkan pertengkaran. Tapi jika akhirnya si pria mengalah, then he really loves her. Jika si pria akhirnya mempertahankan harga dirinya, dan meninggalkan sang wanita, sang wanita gak perlu sedih, cos he dont really love her, better wait for another knight.
