Five Things We Learned from Romantic Comedies

HuffPost’s The Frenemy shares 14 Things We Learned From Romantic Comedies. Our five favorites are below. Check out their complete list with photos for each point.

-If you have a fiance, he will be the most generically attractive blonde Aryan that isn’t busy with “One Tree Hill.” Even though you have dated this man for years and have made the important decision to spend the rest of your life with him, he will suddenly reveal himself to be a complete and terrible douchebag monster in the span of a) one terrible and sexist conversation the Leading Man overhears and b) thirty seconds after you break up with him, he’s all like “yeah I kill and eat women it’s no big!” Seriously, he is just an awful human being.

-If you want to meet a man really fast, run around to grab all your loose papers as wind blows them around, have an attractive-looking boss, or live the kind of life that warrants a handsome undercover fluff piece reporter follow you around.

-If somebody has lied to you for the duration of your three-week relationship (whether it be about their career, the fact that they are engaged or that getting to know you was a bet) it’s totally okay because you have fallen in love with them, duh. You can have one fight but it shouldn’t last very long because the music playing over you all the time will be so sad!

-Once you share a romantic platonic kiss with your soulmate after a lot of obstacles, film credits roll and your life is over. I imagine this is what death feels like. Anybody who is alive has not yet found their soulmate. I know not what comes next.

-When you get incredibly drunk, you will have a moment of clarity when the man you do not know is of your dreams yet pushes the hair out of your eyes and you almost kiss. Because being sloppy drunk is a very important thing to oh, you just threw up.
