ROMANTIC comedies might provide 90 minutes of light-hearted fun but the happy-ever-after movies are also impacting people’s real love lives, according to an Australian survey.
A poll of 1,000 Australians found almost half said rom-coms with their inevitable happy endings have ruined their view of an ideal relationship.
One in four Australians said they were now expected to know what their partner was thinking while one in five respondents said it made their partners expect gifts and flowers “just because”.
Australian relationship counsellor, Gabrielle Morrissey said: “Real relationships take work and true love requires more than fireworks.”
