According to a study by a university in Edinburgh having a steady diet of romantic comedies can ruin your love life. Watching these films apparently can result in unrealistic expectations of romance and can lead to believing in fate and all that nonsense. The research goes further to indicate that people who enjoy such films curb important traits of maintaining a healthy relationship such as communication believing that if it's meant to be they shouldn't have to put in much effort.
So does this mean that the time I busted in at a wedding and proclaimed my love for the bride after knocking out her dipshit groom was a bad move? Was this the reason behind that whole annoying restraining order?
Actually I've attended over a couple hundred weddings as a photographer or spectator and never once have I seen anything like that happen. I've witnessed some events that have been amusing and terrifying, but never have I seen the church doors fly open with some sap screaming to stop the wedding. I kind of hoped to see something like that, but alas.
If you truly expect love and romance to be akin to anything starring Colin Firth or Hugh Grant you really need to seek therapy. Relationships are hard work and take dedication. It's especially difficult since men are lazy and women are half batty most of the time.
Then again what the hell do I know? I mean if this applied to porn fans we'd all give up our jobs to be pizza delivery boys, cause after all every shift would have one busty hot brunette customer who was short on cash and needed an alternative method to pay for her dinner.
Now if one was to believe in this study would it be safe to assume that the whole 'violent video games lead kids to shooting up convents' proclamation by Sarah Palin fans to be true? Something to think about.
It's kind of funny that I'm writing this after I watched 'Love Actually' last night. I guess I might need to turn in my man card.
