We’re all adults here, right? We know that Hollywood romantic comedies are big, beautiful fantasies and that no one actually looks or acts like the characters in real life right? Well, maybe they look like them if you live in the heart of Hollywood or Beverly Hills. We love to watch romantic comedies. The fantasy is fun, it’s entertaining, and it makes us forget about our own crappy love life or work situation or just the fact that we had a bad day. That’s perfectly cool; it’s when we start thinking that Mark Darcy or Mary from There’s Something About Mary are going to actually waltz into our life that we get into trouble.

Sorry guys, but show me a gorgeous, successful doctor who LOVES sports, plays golf, does charity work and has Cameron Diaz’s legs and I’ll show you a unicorn. And ladies, there are Mark Darcy’s out there, but they might not look like Ryan Gosling. In any case, despite the fantasy we can learn a thing or two about dating from romantic comedies. Like what NOT to do.
