Your Relationship Is Not A Romantic Comedy, Get Over It
(I also posted this on Thought Catalog, http://www.thoughtcatalog.com/lara-murallos)
Face it: you will never be a girl standing in front of a boy waiting for him to love you. You should know by now that it’s not easy to make Heath Ledger fall in love with you — even if you have Kat Stratford’s fashion sense. You aren’t Julia Stiles. You also don’t have perfectly trimmed bangs, good taste in music, and 500 days to spend with Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Wake up to the fact that you will never be paid a million dollars just to cry over a boy. You only have to cry over the fact that you can’t have a million dollars.
Your relationship is not a movie. Get over it. Stop comparing your partner to every single leading man in Hollywood history. He will never be John Cusack in Say Anything. He will never serenade you with a boom box just because you’re mad at him. He is who he is, and you should appreciate everything he does to make you smile whenever you’re furious at him. You have to remember that it is the little thing that counts.
