Watching Romantic Comedies Can Kill Your Relationship

I was always under the impression that romantic comedies were great for relationships. Or, at least that’s what I was told to think.

But, new research is saying otherwise. And, it makes sense. And, no a guy did not do the study.

According to BBC News, romantic comedies promote unrealistic expectations when it comes to love and relationships in the real world. Some of the worst offenders, such as “Runaway Bride” and “Notting Hill,” flaunt relationships where partners fail to communicate.

“The commonly held on-screen view, which doesn’t work in real life, is if a lover is meant to be with you, he or she should know what you’re thinking without you having to explain it.”

This is not a shameless plug to try and get you to go out with me, but I don’t care what the study says, I still love a good romantic comedy! But, since we are on the subject of how perfect I am, I do cry so I am in touch with my feminine side ladies.
