How romantic comedies destroy relationships

I know too many women who watch way too many romantic comedies. If that wasn’t bad enough, they drag their boyfriend’s into their addiction and then point out the things that the goofy boyfriend on the screen is doing right.

Unfortunately, women seem to be missing the big picture. No one ever farts in the romantic comedies. No. In fact, no one ever goes to the bathroom. Or eats for that matter.

But that’s not why romantic comedies are completely unrealistic; this is why.

How romantic comedies destroy relationships #1

Sleeping in each other’s arms

In almost every romantic comedy, the woman wakes up to find herself snuggly placed in the arms of her beloved man, where she lay restfully the entire night.

But realistically, that would make you all sweaty and uncomfortable, and don’t even get me started on how often I toss and turn in reality.

The reality: Sleeping in each other’s might be great for the first 3 minutes of bedtime, but after that, we all know that we tend to roll over onto our side of the bed and get to sleep.

Kissing in the morning

Oh they wake up in the morning, the romantic comedy couples, and they talk up close in bed and then they even give each other big wet kisses.

Oh yeah, people don’t have morning breath in movie land. And do you know why? Because they’re actors! They pop mints before the scene.

The reality: Couples would be lucky to even speak in the morning, let alone kiss. Morning breath is a major reality and no one wants to start off their morning by kissing it.

Doing anything for love

Somehow the guy realizes that he is madly in love with the girl and he will do whatever it takes to get her. He books a flight to Ireland and spares no expense to reveal his true feelings.

In turn, she realizes what a winner he is, falls madly in love and the movie ends. Yay!

The reality: He really, really likes her a lot but he just can’t afford to move across state to be with her. Yeah, they write each other on Facebook, religiously at first, but soon he meets someone else and so does she, and the storybook closes on that true love.

    This is why they are MOVIES….anyone who destroys their relationship over a movie is not in reality anyway…they are meant to get us in a romantic mood and hopefully get our boyfriends to see romance and passion are never just movie clips. I’ve seen romantic comedies where the women fart…in Sex and the City one episode where Carrie was in bed with Mr Big one morning farted in bed with him and she was mortified, he laughed in the scene and it was refreshing to see Carrie was human and Big loved it…they go out to dinner and eat all of the time in several films I’ve seen. Of course we don’t kiss when we first wake up until we brush our teeth as we all do anyway so if the movies are affecting your love life…maybe you need to get one or maybe you really don’t have a real love life anyway…think about it. So silly now.

    I totally agree with Naya. My wife is a huge fan of romantic comedies, and she has IMHO totally unrealistic standards now…

    I think that everybody’s taking it wrong! Are not the romantic movies directly responsible of destroying marriage, is the wrong expectations and ideas that these movies create in women’s minds!!
