This Was Better in My Head

The problem with having high expectations of love

Wanna know a secret?

I’m a completely hopeless romantic…

I might roll my eyes when I see couples holding hands, pretend to hate rom-coms, or act like I loveeee the single life but deep down inside I’m jealous. To quote the iconic Julia Roberts from the movie Pretty Woman:

“I want the fairytale.”

So what exactly are my expectations when it comes to love? It’s pretty simple:

-Bump into a handsome stranger by accident

-Instantly hit it off and swap numbers

-Go on a ton of cute dates together

-Make out to a super romantic song

-Run off into the sunset together

Totally realistic, right?
