I agree. May have been more complicated in real life but in the movie she was supportive of his dream, attractive, good person, kind and patient. Seems like he had a great team mate. And for him to cheat... anyone can find a cute person, have a spark and hook up and have a good time, its easy. Its a lot harder to find someone who is going to stand by you during the not so good times, and tolerate or find amusement in your imperfections. What a fool...
I have definitely seen relationships where the guy is lacking, wandering, self absorbed yet an attractive girl continues to support and stand by their side. So I could believe that aspect. Its funny that the movie was from his side, I kind of wanted to grab the guy and yell at him. Many people just dedicate themselves to someone else, despite a lazy and often minimal return of affection. I think happiest (mutual happiness) in relationships springs from team effort.
I wasn't talking about nice, I was talking about being behind someones dreams. She was totally, 100% invested in the relationship and was a caring partner. What does "soul mate" mean? Thats more of a romantic idea, and being a romantic my thought is, as well as being passionate and excited about someone enough to call them your soul mate, its about how you work as a team that matters in the long run. She was a good team-mate (supportive, loving, caring) I didn't say they were a good team, I thought he was an idiot. I'd like to see what he thought was "better" than that girl.
High Fidelity is another example of this type of situation except John Cusack smartens up by the end and realizes the value of his relationship. Some people are idiots, his girl was awesome to him and its his loss!
I guess I also have known guys like this...give him a few years, he'll regret his decision.

Maybe he wanted more than a teammate?
