Why Your Love Will Never Be Like Twilight
Twilight has finally come to an end with the last movie coming out a week before Thanksgiving. As a woman who read all of the books and saw every movie, I understand the turmoil all of you twi-hards are going through.
Girls read a love story and get sappy, mushy and in this case insanely horny. I hate to break it to all of you guys but in this case, just stop now dreaming now, because all the visions of your beautiful future these horribly crafted stories have implanted into your brains will never come true.
The first issue we run into is the blatantly fictional characters that without a doubt, could not possibly exist in real life. The first character I have an issue with is Bella, so pay attention girls. Having little to no personality and mediocre looks will get you absolutely nowhere as far as romance is concerned.
There's a difference between someone who's mysterious and an eerily awkward girl who's just plain boring and flat. Shadily stalking from a corner and breathing heavily will not get you your “dream guy”. Let’s just move on to the male characters because they, quite frankly are even more unrealistic.
You will not find a man like Edward Cullen because vampires don't exist. Sorry I had to be the one to break that to you. If you want the freezing cold kiss, make your boyfriend and random booty call stand outside for ten minutes, that's the closest you're going to get. You want the adrenaline rush of climbing trees to astronomical heights with your lover? Go sky diving together.
If you want to get nailed through a wall with mind blowing sex, I'm sure there's someone you can pay for such adventures if you can't just find a subject the old fashioned way.
The entire story line is bizarre and extremely far-fetched as well. Two guys fighting over the same, boring girl, who leads them both on for an entire year is so utterly unbelievable it’s funny.
Especially if you have no outstanding features that the two guys are convinced they cannot find in anyone else. Plus, eventually the two guys would just become bros and forget about you.
All of these attractions in the story are bound by some magical chemical power that humans don't have the capability of generating. It’s called fantasy for a reason.
People need to stop basing their goals for romance on things they see in movies or television. The authors writing these books that turn into movies are using their imagination. Just because there is an audience for an intense teenage love does not mean that the author thinks you should take their script literally.
It's a story and a brand. Maybe you want your love explorations to be a story, but all of the world will not be buying into everything you and your significant other do together. You won't be put on a budget to make your romance as perfect as a billion dollar movie, and you shouldn't expect it to be.
You should be making your own judgments that suit you and your personality, not someone else’s interpretation of true love. Being a dreamer and a hopeless romantic is one thing, but being obsessed with a fictitious story line will just not work out in the end, especially a story line as far-fetched as twilight.
Finding someone should not revolve around the thought of vampires or a movie plot. If you refuse to see the beauty of the qualities that make people human by only looking for someone more like Edward Cullen, you have greater issues than this article can even go into.
