I love watching romance movies, too. And this is when I am (again) hit with the fact that these guys and girls in there are just way too perfect. There can’t possibly be one of those, right?
Nevertheless, I have a thing for drawing up the perfect man. So, this is what I see in movies, and hope that the Ideal Boyfriend has.
1. We’re eating at a restaurant and I get up (either to go to the bathroom or somewhere else). Ideal Boyfriend also stands up.
2. We’re walking on the sidewalk and I fall flat on my face. Ideal Boyfriend also falls on the ground and laughs with me. (HA)
3. We’re talking on the phone and I fall asleep. Ideal Boyfriend keeps the phone by his side and calls me first thing in the morning.
4. Ideal Boyfriend knows how to cook. Deliciously.
5. Ideal Boyfriend appreciates good feedback. Like: that suit looks ridiculous, that purple shirt doesn’t look good on you, and oh, that ring in your nose is kinda weird.
And I always guffaw at the girls in the movie….So, if I were a boy (haha….ya know, Beyonce?), this would be my Ideal Girlfriend.
1. The boys and I are having a fun night out (or in) and girlfriend calls. I tell her I have the boys over and we’re playing….poker? or watching a game. Preferably, if I were watching a game, Ideal Girlfriend would be over and watching with. But, if that isn’t the case, Ideal Girlfriend says “Okay, have fun! I’ll call you tomorrow.”
2. I go through a lot to win a contest at work for coupons to some nice restaurant so Ideal Girlfriend and I can go together. The coupons give dinner free and Ideal Girlfriend doesn’t mind that I didn’t have the money to go there in the first place, and therefore, participated and smashed all contestants in the contest to get those coupons.
3. Ideal Girlfriend doesn’t mind that I want to go on a road trip with the boys. Or camping.
4. Girls are looking in my direction and smiling up a storm. Ideal Girlfriend says “They know what’s good when they see it.”
5. I walk by a girl who’s beautiful (or rather, sexy, I guess) and I try really hard to keep my eyes on the Ideal Girlfriend. No worries, Ideal Girlfriend smiles and says, “That deserves a treat.”
What is your ideal significant other like? Is dating in the movies anything like dating in real life?
