I love romantic comedies but...

I just read this and hate to admit that it's kinda true...

ROMANTIC COMEDIES BAD FOR LOVE LIFE _ Researchers say watching romantic comedies can spoil your love life. Rom-coms have been blamed by relationship experts for promoting unrealistic expectations when it comes to love. They found fans of films such as Runaway Bride and Notting Hill often fail to communicate with their partner. Many held the view if someone is meant to be with you, then they should know what you want without you telling them.

Maybe that's why after watching "Enchanted" I yelled at Brian "you never ride up on a white horse to rescue me anymore!" LOL. Ok...maybe it's not quite that extreme. But guys in movies are pretty unrealistic.

I made the mistake of watching "Made of Honor" last weekend and Brian came in half way through the movie and just started laughing at the guys in this movie, sitting around discussing their feelings. I guess as women we like to BELIEVE that's what they're doing. In reality, the only feelings discussed are who they feel will win the game or when the feel they need another beer. I guess that wouldn't make a very exciting movie though :)
