Although some romantic movies have pieces of real life relationships, most are really just depicting some fantasy relationship that only happens when one lives their life as if a storybook character is their real person. It’s extremely difficult to watch all of the romantic movies that they have on the market and not find some small hope that your love life could even be a small sample of what you see on the big screen.
For me, romantic movies do only one thing for me; remind me I don’t have the communication level I wish I had. Oh I can talk, ramble on for hours and easily state what is on my mind, but to find a person who can communicate back within the same time period is difficult. It’s easy to say you want communication to change between your partner and your self, but it’s harder to find out why the lack of communication is there.
If the lack of communication has been there from day one, well maybe you need to do some thinking because if this is truly how your partner in life is wired and they do not feel it’s something that needs to be changed within their own self, then it won’t change. We are who we are and no one can change another person!
For me, watching a romantic film in the present day has me longing for a partner who I can bounce off of with ease, we laugh, we joke and above all we simply just talk about everything. For me, watching a romantic movie in the past created this vision of some high sprung love affair that only happens in either movies or the first few months of dating a person.
After reading the stories being shared with me for the I Met My Love Online series happening at Happily Blended during the month of February, I have found that these real life stories are not only entertaining and giving hope to my readers, but they are showing me the “real” side of dating, love and life.
