5 Romantic Comedy Gestures That Would Get You Slapped

romantic-comedy-say-anthing

Everyone knows how romantic comedies are supposed to go: Boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy does something stupid to win girl back and somehow she falls for it — probably because of low self-esteem or the inability to recognize she’s living within rom-com constraints.

Most romantic comedy plotlines are based on the meet-cute. “Oh, we bumped into each other and are soulmates?” “Oh, we both grabbed for the same pair of gloves, then we’ll be idiots and not exchange numbers, but I’ll put my number in a BOOK and MAYBE you’ll find it if it was meant to be?” (I had two guy friends in high school who insisted we watch “Serendipity” multiple times.)

But many of the little cute things in rom-coms would be grounds for arrest, or at least a good slap. Read more on Cracked…

This Guy Is Asking The Interwebs For Help Finding His Missing Crush

So, once upon a time, a boy from New Zealand got lost in Hong Kong on New Year’s Eve and met a girl from America: ”I was just walking around and admiring the lights and found this girl just crying on the side of the road … I went and tried to help her out. She was lost. She’d lost all her friends.”

After the boy cheered her up with his “undeniably bad sense of humor,” he took her out for drinks, and she eventually found her friends again. At 6 a.m., the party ended and she left.

However, before she took off, she dropped a romantic comedy-style bomb on the dude. Leaving the boy with her name, her hometown (Washington, D.C.), and her picture, she challenged him to “find her.” And off she went. Keep reading »

I’ll Have What They’re Having: Flashmob Of Orgasming Women Recreate “When Harry Met Sally” Scene

When Harry Met Sally Orgasm Flashmob
Yes, yes, yes, YES!

New York City’s Katz’s Delicatessen was very famously featured in “When Harry Met Sally” as the lunch spot where Meg Ryan fakes a pretty epic orgasm. One woman reenacting that scene at Harry and Sally’s table might elicit a chuckle or two, but when a flashmob of 20 women all start oohing, ahhing, and “yes, yes, YES“-ing in unison, well, it’s a sight to behold. The reactions of the other patrons and the deli staff, who apparently had no idea the prank was coming (pun intended), are priceless. [YouTube via People]

9 Crappy Messages About Love & Friendship We Learned From Watching Rom-Coms

I watched the movie “Something Borrowed” in its entirety on Sunday afternoon. I was cleaning, and dealing with a cold, and, sue me, I will probably watch anything with Ginnifer Goodwin in it if given the opportunity.

Have you seen it? Good, don’t. I’ll tell you about it instead. “Something Borrowed” stars Goodwin and Kate Hudson as Rachel and Darcy, two diametrically opposed best friends both in love with Dex (played by Colin Egglesfield and his eyebrows). Dex is Darcy’s fiancé, but he’s Rachel’s true love, and therein lies the problem. Dex and Rachel are supposed to be together and they embark on a weird physical and emotional affair and lie their faces off to Darcy about it.  Keep reading »
