4 ‘Dumb’ love ideas from Romantic movies

Every day, we watch movies (Hollywood, Bollywood, Nollywood
and every other  “…wood”) to see stories
that we could never experience, and to witness worlds that just aren’t real.
While watching horror films, comedy, and
thrillers, we remember that “oh yes, it’s a movie, it cannot
happen in real life”. But for some reason, when it comes to romantic movies, we
like to think that really could happen.

According to Madamenoire, here are dumb ideas that some of the biggest romantic movies
have promoted.

1. That Men remember You forever:

Any well-adjusted individual who
cares about his own happiness is not going to wait around for a woman for five
or more years. Movies like the Notebook, Dear John, Vampire Diaries etc teach
that Men always remember forever, but the truth is, it’s all a lie! It’s not
healthy to pin your hopes on someone you won’t see for years. It’s not
sustainable in the real world. It’s the human condition to move on
2. That it is Ok to lead a guy on: Boy meets
girl. Girl kisses boy. Boy and girl spend 500 adorable, romantic days together
(or something like that). Girl ends it randomly. That’s the plot of 500
Days of Summer. 
The friends of the heartbroken boy tell him that it
was obvious the girl would end things, and that he had his hopes up
for no good reason. It’s not okay to act like a girlfriend, when you don’t want
to be one. No matter what you say, you need to let your actions speak if a man
is to get the picture.

3. That Misunderstandings will work
themselves out
Like in most Bollywood movies, misunderstandings between the
heroine and her hero. The two main characters do and say multiple things that
appear very rude and offensive to each other, yet somehow
someone or some event always comes out of the woodworks to clear everything up.
That will not happen in real life. Communicate, and communicate well. Always
say what you mean, and everything you mean by your words and actions. In real
life, if you offend someone as bad as the main characters in this story do,
just once, they’ll put you out of their mind entirely.

4.  Love at first sight:

Did you ever notice how quickly people fall in love in
movies? And then make enormous decisions based on that “love” like leaving
their current partner, or moving for the other person, or quitting their job to
be with them? In real life, you don’t leave somebody for someone you just met.
You weigh your options. You want to make sure it’s actually a good fit.
