One of the reasons we swoon over Prince Charming in a romantic comedy movie is that we get to live what we would never otherwise experience in our lives. We tear up at love declarations and laugh at their inside jokes and root for the good guy because we’ll never get to live such a cheesy romantic story. And maybe there’s a good reason for that. Here are 7 romantic moments that would never happen in real life and are only worth enjoying in a movie. It’s all about showing up in the nick of time, taking a leap of faith when all the odds are against them and just a lot of love.
1. Showing up at the last minute
And delivering a heart melting, life changing, poetry like love declaration. And not only will this love declaration bring back the person you love, or snatch them from their evil partner, it will also make everything ok. The Sun will shine again, you’ll go to bed on time and wake up early to work out and make your significant other breakfast. Down here, in the real world, you end up crying on the kitchen floor.
2. Still look good while making out in the rain
We all love a good make out in the rain. That is, in the movies. Where all your make up stays intact and your mascara doesn’t start running down your chicks that are no longer covered in blush. And where your hair doesn’t get all frizzy, still looking good with two random locks of hair stuck to your forehead. Totally unstaged!
3. All you have to do is take off your glasses
All of a sudden everyone will be dying to be your friend, you’ll go to parties every night and your life will never be the same as before. With the messages Hollywood is putting out there, it’s no wonder kids nowadays don’t want to wear glasses anymore.
4. Falling for the person you hate
It’s pretty difficult to imagine two people that hate each other falling head over heels in love all of a sudden. What happened to the things you strongly disliked about this other person? Did their qualities overwhelmed you all of a sudden? If you were feeling compelled to hook up because you’re young and attractive looking, listen: there’s no pressure, you don’t have to fall in love with each other.
5. Stumbling over your soulmate when you’re shopping for gloves
I could go shopping for gloves seven times (magic number there!) every day for the next seven years, and not only during winter and I doubt I’ll happen to find my future significant other just waiting there waiting for me with a pair of kid gloves and killer haircut. Stop setting high expectations, Hollywood, we all know the only way to find a partner nowadays is on OkCupid.
6. Pretending to be someone else
And when the other finds out, everything is cool, they’re still available and ready to spend the rest of their days with you. Are you actually engaged and you’re flirting with other women? Ah, no biggie. Have you been planning your wedding for two years and now you got cold feet so you’re having an affair with another guy? Pff, so what, happens to all of us.
7. Giving someone an ultimatum
And having your ultimatum met by that special someone. Come on, let’s face it, when’s the last time this happened to you in real life? People don’t change over night and metamorphose in the best lover ever. That only happens in romantic comedies. And boy, are we happy for them! For a second there, their happiness is our happiness. And they live happily ever after. The end!
