9 worst love lessons from romantic comedies

Romantic comedies make us laugh, cry and believe in true love. Unfortunately, they also make us believe in a whole bunch of other things aren’t true — things that are kind of false and definitely destructive.

In honor of Valentine’s Day, we give you a list of films that taught us incredibly stupid love lessons that we hope people are sensible enough to ignore.

Leaves Paige only to follow her friends on an Alison-centric near-death wild goose chase.

What you might think is not good or moving enough, there’s always others out there who will be greatly moved by your work.

I'm the one who asked Hank about evolution. Thank you so much for saying that people can ask questions because they actually want to learn. I have too many people messaging me saying I'm stupid, many needing a decently long message to say so, but I only have 2 nice messages. I so badly want to tell everyone that I'm smart, that my gpa was 3.75, and that I qualify for Mensa, but I know if it wasn't pointless, it would make me the exception to the rule. Truthfully, they're making me feel stupid.

The people who are being dicks to you are revealing to the world that they are so insecure in their own knowledge, the only way they can feel comfortable is to condescend to others, to create a false sense of superiority in their own minds.

Don’t pay any attention to those people, because they’re pretending to be very smart and enlightened, when they’re actually very ignorant.

Let me leave you with something that I’ve practiced myself my whole life, and taught to my kids: If you look around and see that you’re the Smartest Person In The Room, find another room.

99.99999% of the people who have ever lived thought that the world just existed as it exists. That’s the logical conclusion based on direct observation of a world that does not change very much during a human lifetime. 

Telling someone they’re stupid because they don’t know something is like telling someone they’re hairy because they don’t like chocolate. Those two things have nothing to do with each other. Actually, it’s worse than that…disrespecting someone because they happen to not know all of the same things you know is a kind of bigotry. 

Don’t be a dick.
