I love romantic comedies, nothing and I mean nothing makes me happier than a happy ending in a movie regardless of how bad the movie actually is. Remember the movie Failure to Launch? It was awful, it was terrible but at the end of the movie I cried because the protagonists managed to live happily ever after. Regardless of how bad a romantic comedy (romcom) actually is I will, without fail watch it.
So whats the problem? you might ask.
They have without fail warped my view of reality, and notions of what “normal” is when it comes to; dating; relationships; and well, guys in general. My ideas of what “normal” is; I expect giant decelerations of love, I expect to live happily ever after, I expect for dating to be a lot easier. Movies make this entire process look so much easier than it actually is. In actuality boys are kind of jerks sometimes, and the happily ever after part takes a lot more time to get to.
Whats the point of this blog?
To basically dissect my favourite movies to show how they are unrealistic, or better yet to show how these romcoms directly shade my version of reality.
Why Should YOU read it?
well, I promise if anything to be entertaining, but also I promise this will not be some melodramatic blog, and I promise that I won’t go on rants about how I’m going to end up a crazy cat lady. I feel like there are a lot of people who go through bad dates, and bad breakups and maybe this will reach out to someone.
