I did the same thing with The Notebook. I had seen the movie with Mandy Moore, A Walk to Remember, and I LOVED that, but just couldn't get over how she dies in the end. I also loved Message in a Bottle, but thought it was terribly sad too. I refused to watch the Notebook, and then a couple years after it came out, I decided I would watch it after some girls at work were talking about the book. This was when my hubby and I were first together. I picked it up after a short day of work and classes, he comes home, and I'm sitting on the couch balling my freaking head off, and he thinks I must be nuts!! And, I just keep talking about how they had this incredible love story, and this is my favorite movie of all time, and I can't believe what I have been missing out on all this time, and how I was going to watch for a second time right then. And just like that, I was hooked on his stuff.
