We know, it sounds a little crazy to pick up dating tips and knowledge from Hollywood movies. But bear with us here because Hollywood has a lot of advice about dating, romance, and sex. If you think it’s all nonsense, look at it this way. Would these films be as popular if they weren’t relatable? Of course not, that’s why we love them. We can relate to what the characters are going through. Yes, there is a certain level of escapism but there’s also a lot which we can recognise in our own life. With that in mind here are some of the greatest lessons romantic comedies and chick flicks have taught us about dating.

He’s Just Not That Into You

One of the main lessons that Hollywood has taught us about the dating game is that it’s exactly that, a game. When you’re in your twenties, you’re going to have a lot of fun trying to figure out whether they like you, or they don’t. Are they playing hard to get or are they really just not interested in what you have to offer. If you think this is an exaggeration, you clearly haven’t been on the dating scene because it’s only become more complicated. These days, you have to figure out when to text or call. But be careful because if they reply and you read it, they probably know. If you don’t reply soon enough, they might think you’re not interested. Too soon, well then you’re desperate. Oh and don’t fall into the trap of sending multiple messages if they’re going on and off whatsapp and not replying. There’s a good chance they’re determining how needy you are. Struggling with this?

Get Hard

If there’s one thing that hollywood loves to make jokes about it’s the sex drives of men. When they’re young, they can’t think about anything else and when they’re old…there are other issues. What we can learn from Hollywood is that both are remarkably common. So, if you’re dating a guy who thinks about sex all the time, you can bet your friend is having the same problem. Or, if you’re dating someone older and things aren’t going the way they should, it’s perfectly common. An article like www.livelongstayyoung.com/sex-drive-the-movie-cast-soundtrack-quotes-and-tips-to-drive-men-with-low-sex-drive-or-a-woman-crazy/ has great tips on boosting a low sex drive.


You’ve Got Mail

Remember that fun little rom-com that reunited Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. We sure do, but we never thought it would be the future. You can forget about meeting a guy in a bar. If you’re looking for love, unfortunately, you’re going to find it online. Or, you’re going to find something completely different and mistake it for love. It doesn’t matter whether you add them on Facebook or search through Tinder, this is the dating game of today. If you haven’t joined Tinder yet you may want.  It’s made things more complicated because now there’s what’s lovingly referred to as the internet rule. Basically, they’re never as good as they look in their pictures. You might have noticed this fact has popped up in quite a few rom coms over the years. The absolute best example would be Bringing Down The House.

You see, hollywood isn’t just about escapism. These movies do give some great examples of real life scenarios you’ll probably find yourself in more than once.
