I Hate Romantic Movies

I was watching "Something's Gotta Give" this evening and it got to the part where Diane Keaton's character is heartbroken and crying for weeks and I knew just how she felt. That is the way I was after Bob broke off our engagement. I was crying myself to sleep every night and crying when I woke up in the morning, for months. I think it was the Prozac that really helped eventually.

I hate romantic movies. The basic message is that eventually everyone will meet the right person and fall in love and be happy. But it isn't true. Some people never meet their true love. It isn't enough to love someone, they have to love you back. Some people die alone.

And I'm forty years old and no one is ever going to love me. [At this point my friends all rush to assure me that they love me. But that is a stupid thing to say. Having friends is not the same thing at all. So I have turned off the comments to keep them from saying it.] Most of the time I am Ok with being alone, but I really shouldn't watch romantic movies.
