Best 'The Notebook' Quotes Rewritten For Dating In 2017

It's been over a decade since "The Notebook" first hit theaters, but the romance between Noah and Allie is still breaking hearts today.

But, that's mainly because their relationship was a manufactured illusion that convinced 13-year-old girls love was supposed to be all-consuming, dramatic and — above all — difficult.

It's supposed to tear apart families, blow up lives and will probably include one too many bird references.

The reality?

Most of my closest friends (who are all smart, beautiful, hilarious women, btw) can't even get a text back.

And because we grew up believing relationships were supposed to be these magical, fairytale romances, it's even more of a letdown when the guys we think should be building houses for us just end up building emotional walls.

So, we decided to round up some of the most iconic quotes from "The Notebook" and give them a modern spin to reflect dating in 2017:

Original: "If you're a bird, I'm a bird."

2017: "If you're a fuckboy, I'm done."
