Conflict is something that everyone will experience throughout their lifetime. Experiencing conflict can make us feel awkward and even lonely at times. When we experience conflict, we often turn it into a grudge match and continue with a situation that should have simply been resolved. In this short paper I will identify a conflict which took place in the 2005 movie “Hitch”. I will give my opinion about the conflict and how it might be able to have been handled differently. Conflict is ever changing, and can have room for situations to be handled appropriately and politely.
“Conflict is personal, and it might be defined as “angry disagreement” (Sole, K. 2011). In the movie “Hitch” a conflict took place between a female and male in a speed dating scene. The female had found out that the male was a relationship expert that helped people get together and see each other for who they really are. She was furious with him and was very outrageous in this public setting.
While the conflict was ongoing, many more couples were hearing their outlandish and loud speaking of what she thought he had done wrong. She was only seeing one side of the story, and at this present time it was only her story and her conflict with him. While they are discussing his profession in the heated conflict, everyone around them starts to focus their attention on the argument that they are having. This turns into an embarrassment on both parts.
After they argue for several minutes about his character and what her expectation of someone is, he is identified as the “Love Doctor”. The male is shattered because his cover is blown on his profession and could possibly lose potential cliental. This is an example of mishandling a delicate matter.
