10 Lies Romantic Movies Have Told Us About Love

I am a sucker for romantic movies. From How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days to The Notebook, I just can’t help but sit in a movie theater and sob, laugh, and become filled with hope. I come face to face with a screen where characters love, lose that same love, only to reunite and love again, and I think: That can be me! I can be the exception to the rule. I can wait for a man to love me because he will come back to me because it is destiny.

Then I look at my romantic life, filled with bad dates, hurt feelings, and online dating, and realize it’s all caca. This is real life, Sujeiry. A man will not stand by my window and carry a boombox over his head and play “In Your Eyes!”

The falsity hurts, romantic comedies. And there are so many! Here are ten lies romantic movies have told us about love. Check out the slideshow on BABBLE!
