Many of our ideas of love and relationships are influenced by media portrayals. However, finding that perfect soul mate can be a difficult task when our ideas are misconstrued by some of our favourite rom coms. Unfortunately the search for love is not straightforward like those in the movies. We all want to be a damsel in distress, saved by a guy who is soon to be the love of our life just like in the rom com 'The Wedding Planner'.

Many of our favourite movies give us the ability to believe in fate and destiny. Unfortunately rom coms can convey unrealistic ideas of instant love, where in actual fact true love and commitment may take months or even years.

Unfortunately we cannot live hoping that scenes of the well known movie 'The Notebook' will one day happen to us. Yes there are stories like this that can be unexplained and are out of the ordinary, however, these are the exceptions to the rule. We cannot sit around and wait for our high school crush to serenade us during a school lunch break just like in the rom com '10 Things I Hate About You' or work as a hotel maid and fall in love with the Prime Minister like in 'Maid in Manhattan'.

I won't lie, I am a sucker for rom coms, and it easy to be swept away in the moment, believing that one-day Prince Charming will sweep us off our feet. There is nothing wrong with having these ideas about love and relationships, but it is important that we do not waste all our time fantasising that Prince Charming will come on his stallion and serenade us like in 'Pretty Woman'. Yes fate plays a role in love but we need to be realistic and be aware that our lives are not like those in the movies.
