Reality Bites. (GIVEAWAY ALERT!!!)

I've never been a big fan of chick flicks. Maybe this is because I'm a pessimist and a realist, but I hate how chick flicks make women out to be so helpless and whiny. And the worst part is that they always get that so-called happy ending despite being downright annoying every step of the way - the kind of ending that makes me want to barf in their faces, roll my eyes and say, "Yeahhh, right."


So, when Gino Quillamor tweeted this last night, it really resonated with me: "Chick flicks set the bar on love a lil too high. Truth is: reality bites. It may not be as magical as it is in the movies, but it's real."


I think a lot of women forget to appreciate the realness that comes with real-life men. They expect to be showered with gifts, love and attention 24/7 without realising that, in the real world, where real men are really busy with real jobs and real life; this simply isn't feasible most of the time.


In real life, men make mistakes. They won't always find time for you. They have jobs. They work out (and you're lucky if they do!). They play video games. They hang out with other people who *gasp* aren't you. The sooner you accept all of these things, the happier you will be.

I find it depressing when my taken friends complain about their men not having enough time for them coz they're busy with work and making something of themselves. Girl, is he cheating on you, lying to you or beating you? No? Then learn to appreciate that man or just let him go and find someone who will keep your hungry heart happy.


Despite not being a girly girl who appreciates chick flicks, though, I hope you appreciate the effort I made to look the part of one. :p


After all, I do still hope for a happy ending for myself - even if it isn't the kind of happy ending that other women would wish for. :)

Mine mostly just consists of passionate nights; intellectual, witty and geeky conversations; good wine (or any other alcohol, really - not picky); and a whooooole lotta cuddling.


To each her own. :)
