I am a complete sucker for a romantic comedy. There are a few that I would genuinely recommend as a quality film to just about anyone; “Going the Distance,” for example, was hilarious, steered away from the usual rom-com tropes, and actually felt realistic. But for the most part, rom-coms, while enjoyable in a mind-numbing sort of way, follow a basic formula that further certain romantic untruths. I would like to say I have been immune to their subversive messages, but the fact is, the happy endings found in rom-coms have a way of implanting in your brain as things that could actually occur in real life. They won’t. Here are the five biggest lies rom-coms tell about sex and relationships.
