Because they say that for every single boy who counts the stars, there is a little girl who is wishing upon one. (And they never mention what happens after the stars fade into morning and the other falls into oblivion)


Because they say that people fall in love when the time is right, they are true to each other and are ready to be together. (But no one ever mentions how she is so damaged she can barely think, and he is so cynical that he may never be ready.)


Because they insist that your soulmate is going to be a good, kind, caring human being who will love you from the bottom of their hearts. (This is due to the fact that even if there is someone for everyone, bad people are immune to the soulmate theory.)


Because they always have a happy ending (And real life begins after the sun has set and she has realized that he may not be everything she hoped for and he begins to have second thoughts about commitment.)


Because everything is assured in its predictability (And the trouble with predictability is that there is no room to be surprised.)


Because there is such a thing as a big romantic gesture that makes everything all right. (And no one talks about what happens if she says no and that he’s made too many mistakes and her love for him has dried up.)


Because even if I hate that every single thing they say is, and believe untrue, there is something that draws me back to them every single time. (It’s that stupid, tiny, romantic broken bone in my body that one day, I will find someone who tastes like gold, talks like silver and has a solid platinum heart too.)
Its an odd love/hate relationship.…

And there are no movies that tell you what to do when you love her, but she can never love you, you are female. She could never think of it. And that hurts.

I'll honestly admit that you're spot on in this prose about romantic comedies. Though, to be honest with you, I'll have to disagree about the last point.

not because it is incorrect or anything - personal reasons, really. I'm a firm believer, that romantic comedies, are simply an escape. They're meant to be shallow, hollow, empty, dead weights which serve only to help us be satisfied with the idea, that one day, we'll be with the person we love. I don't know about love - my writing, I'll honestly admit, is limited to an ideal portrait of what love can be. Though even in that ideal portrait, I'm admitting that its the melancholic aspect which has the most appeal in it.

Which makes sense, if one thinks about it: love,  by nature, is melancholic. Which is why Romantic Comedies, in their presentation, plots, theme, and even in their portraits, are ironies and satires. Which would then place them in the category of... in my opinion... tragedies.

Because they represent a very unrealistic universe - an escape...

(shrug) I'm probably emotionally constipated... so I'll acknowledge that I didn't do justice to your prose. It deserves better - it really was well written.

Romantic comedies are a wish fulfillment fantasy, and it's something something people like to drown in sometimes. I think these fantasies just make you feel worse.

Just remember that every time you stuff things up, it's your job as a performer to do it on a massive scale for proper comedic effect. Life is a romcom.
