Annoying Romance Clichés

I like romance just fine when it's written well. But sometimes, nobody's lucky enough to see that.

Instant soulmates & love at first sight
You cannot base a healthy relationship entirely on one meeting. Just because you had chemistry when you met doesn't mean it's going to last.

Endless will-they-or-won't-they
There comes a point when it stops being cute or interesting and just becomes annoying.

How do you tell if a person isn't the one? If you're relying on how exciting it feels, you're headed for disaster.

Sex is everything.
People, there is a difference between love and sex. And believe it or not, you aren't required to be doing it. If you think you are, then do you really love them or are you just trying to live up to someone else's unreasonable expectations?

So what mistaken beliefs about romance drive you nuts?

That it is something you fall in or out of, instead of something that changes and adapts. Something you have to feed and care for to keep.

Good way of putting it.
