Chick flicks are bad for relationships

You can't argue with science.

Chick flicks (sorry, Romantic comedies, ugh) tend to idealize well, everything about how a relationship should be. It turns out, that's probably not the best way to look at things, you know, unrealistically. The exception of Love Actually aside - because that movie is awesome - most problems can't be fixed with a shopping montage, a glove left on an ice rink a while ago isn't really a good basis for a relationship and if you ever meet a person who acts even remotely like any character Julia Roberts has ever played, run like hell.

Normally I'm not really a Ryan Gosling fan because of how whiny he seems but here's a good quote from him about the Notebook -

"Before I did the film, I went and talked to my friends who were married with kids, and I said to them, tell me your biggest problem with him and then you tell me your biggest problem with her," he says. 

"She was like, 'Well, he f-ing never washes the sponge. And every time I go to grab the sponge, it's cold and full of food, and I'm just going to kill him. And then he always parks as far away as he can and he never gets the spot that I want him...' and she had a whole list.

"And then I said to him, 'What's your problem with her?' And he was like, 'Pretty much that she's got those problems with me.'"

Lastly, Sarah Jessica Parker is not cute, please stop trying to convince me that she is anything above a 2/10.

That about sums it up.

Now where did I put my 007 boxed set?
