Stupid movies giving us high expectations

Randomly listening to: I will always love you by Whitney Houston

You know in romantic movies, specially in romantic comedies, there is always a pattern:

Girl meets boy.
Girl falls for boy.
Problems arise.
One of the two have a grand gesture.
Happy ending.

We've all grown up watching, and wishing that someday we would have something similar, our own movie love story. I grew up loving those grand gestures, believing that whatever you do in love, you can always save it if you try really hard, if you show the other person how much you love them. I've always been a sucker for romance, and believe in it above all else.

So it is disappointing to realize that there is a different kind of story, one that is rarely shown in romantic comedies, one that we really don't want to believe is true.

It's the story of the underdog.
The story of the girl who doesn't get the guy.
The story of the girl who tries her hardest and it still isn't enough.
The story of the girl who doesn't get a happy ending.

and I will always love you
