Romantic Comedies

Growing up I was OBSESSED with romantic comedies. I could. not. get. enough. I saw each and every one that came out, usually at the theater.

Then I met Garth and I was introduced to "guy" movies. I became obsessed with the James Bond, Lethal Weapon, and Die Hard flicks. It has spanned to Iron Man, The Hulk, and Transformers. I even begged Garth to go to the theater and see the new X Man movie. Who am I? What happened to the girl who loved romantic comedies?

I'll tell you what happen. I found a love so great it surpassed any romantic movie. When I watch romantic comedies, I don't get this ache in my chest of what I want someday. I now feel that this movie is lame because I have a love so much better than this.

Oh my gosh! I think that is the sweetest thing I have EVER heard! :)

Brown Eyed Girl said...

This is so sweet and you are so right! I used to love the romantic movies too, but it's so nice when you find your own romance and you no longer have to rely on the movies for it!

I LOVE X-Men. Hubs isn't a huge fan, but he goes for me. Is that weird? HA

Lynsey T said...

So so so sweet. You two are absolutely adorable.

Jules said...

You are so cute! I definitely know what you're saying. Once you settle down with your own Mr. Right, romantic comedies don't do it for you like they used to. I still think they're cute once is awhile, but I too am into action movies. I can't wait to see the new X-Men Wolverine movie.

Mika said...

SO sweet. :) Horray for true love!!

Jennifer said...

That was really sweet, but, I am absolutely head over heels in love with my hubby still and I love romantic comedies. I just like anything love-related, because I know that wonderful feeling!

Jenny.Lee said...

I am so much more of a "guy" movie watcher these days. I haven't even seen Bride Wars! Me not see a wedding movie! Crazy.

Brittany Ann said...

I totally relate. After I got married, I stopped watching as many romantic comedies. I just didn't have a need for them. My love was way better!

Blablover5 said...

So, what did you think of the new X-men movie? We've been debating on and off if it's worth it or not.

THE Stephanie said...

So sweet. And so true. Much more fun to watch when you're not married to the greatest guy in the entire world, right? Now... they just don't measure up.

Aartee said...

awww! too sweet :) We saw Bride Wars on Thursday and I thought it was cute...

Tara Gibson said...

awwwwww you are too cute!

Melissa said...

Too funny! I've never been into romantic comedies or chick flicks. When my husband and I moved into together and combined our DVD collections, HE was the one who brought all the romantic comedies, and I had all the guy movies. And, I cannot wait to see the new X-Men movie! :)

I like action movies because they rev you up, you know? Like you feel like you can go out and conquer the world!

LyndsAU said...

Aww, so sweet! I, unfortunately, can't seem to make myself love action movies like my husband. lol...although I did enjoy all the Die Hard movies, which he made me watch when the newest one came out :-)

jskcaesquivel said...

Brett Alexandra said...

That is so sweet:) I started to get more into war movies when I started dating my husband. Funny!

Jordan said...

So sweetly sappy - in the good way! I've always been more action oriented, but I love that my husband will watch a good chick flick/romantic comedy with me! He's taking me to see Wolverine tonight!

I am the same exact way! Of course I never really was a big time chick flick girl, but now I am even more of a dude flick girl ;)

I CAN'T wait to see the new X Men movie! It's actually going to be out while we are here in Qatar so we are definitely going to catch it!

Emily Jean said...

Emily said...

- Sarah :-) said...

Amen, sista!! Romantic comedies just don't do "it" for me anymore. I've got the real thing, man. Who needs an unrealistic stupid movie with people that wear enough make-up to cause them to sink with the Titatnic?

I want the real thing, baby... and bring on the action flicks!!

SassyEngineer said...

That is such a sweet post! I love my husband, but I still enjoy the romantic comedy every once in a while, but I enjoy boy movies with him too :)

bearer of three said...

aww isnt it great to be in love??? well i still love romantic comedies, and i also like guy flicks...My hubby and I are just movie watchers and love a good movie

Rachel said...

I'm the same way too!!
You know, I used to watch these shows and movies about these single girls and all the comedic errors that went on in their lives, and now I look at them totally differently. I now kind of feel like they're looking in the wrong places, or that the guy is a total jerk and not worth their interest!
