According to a new Australian study, romantic comedies are messing up people’s personal lives by perpetuating the false notion that falling in love is all rainbows and unicorns, and always ends up just swimmingly for everyone involved. Almost half of the people who participated in the study said rom-coms and their annoying happy endings have “ruined” their view of what constitutes an ideal relationship, and 20 percent of respondents bemoaned the fact that they feel like they are expected to give their partner gifts and flowers “just because.” Pretty unbelievable, if we do say so ourselves. Flowers “just because?” As if. So way to go, Meg Ryan and Nora Ephron. Thanks to you two (and all of your imitators), people actually think someone is going to complete them someday. Man, are they wrong. We’re not even sure how you two sleep at night.
