If Only Life Were Like A Romantic Comedy

Do you ever imagine how different the world would be if people were completely honest? If people had the courage to say exactly what was on their mind. I constantly think about it. Do you know what makes romantic comedies great? When you watch one, it’s that classic tale between the female lead and the male lead falling for each other. One of them is almost always a little more interested in the other. What makes these films worth watching is the fact that the main characters almost always say exactly what’s on their minds. It’s not censored. It’s not some sorry excuse. It’s not bs. It’s honest.

Then there’s that classic scene at the end of the movie where the girl is moving/leaving, and then the guy decides whether he is going to chase after her before it’s too late. Otherwise he will live a life full of regret. Sadly, sometimes, it does end that way. It’s a shame that life is not like a Bollywood movie or a romantic comedy.

What if people had the courage to admit any of the following:

  • “I wish you would ask me out.”
  • “I really miss being friends with you.”
  • “Why don’t we talk anymore?”
  • “I’m really crazy about you, but it scares me.”
  • “You hurt my feelings when you say things like that.”
  • “I think about you all the time.” (without sounding weird and desperate)

I have good relations with every guy I’ve ever liked. I’m a straightforward person and I almost always state exactly how I feel in that moment. Sometimes, I would rather leave things left unsaid though. It depends on the person and the situation. If I have something unpleasant to say, then I find a way to say it in the most caring and understanding way possible. I get no satisfaction out of hurting someone else’s feelings. I will never understand those that get satisfaction out of playing games with someone’s heart and leading them on. I find selfish, manipulative, and egotistical people incredibly unattractive. And I try to avoid them at all cost, you should too. So, what do you think, would the world be a better place if people were more honest? Yay or nah?

Wherever you are in the world stay happy, healthy, and safe! ❤️
