Read on to check out some pointers on love that chick flicks offer you.
Stay In The Here And Now.
“I love you present tense.”
-The Fault in Our Stars
This movie beautifully depicts that love is not always about staying together forever. It is about living in the present moment and cherishing those moments as long as they last. This is just one of the love tips it offers. Love does not always have happy endings, but it does give you happiness.
Seize The Moment.
“You always had me. I always had you.”
Sometimes, love is right in front of us but we fail to see through it. And when we do realise that, the moment passes. Don’t let the moment pass. Instead, grab the opportunity as it comes to you, or else you’ll just be chasing around like Rosie and Alex and waiting for chances.
Be On The Look-out.
“Andie Anderson. Benjamin Barry. Cute. Thank you. I meant your name. Thank you two times. Unattached? Currently. Likewise. Surprising. Psycho? Rarely… Interested? Perhaps.Hungry? Starving. Leaving.”
-How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days
There are times when you come across love by pure chance. You may not be looking for love, but well, love is not in our control. It happens, whether you want it or not, irrespective of whether you thought you would fall for a person like that or not. This chick flick is full of love tips!
Do Not Compromise Yourself.
“I am not interested in emotional fuckwittage.”
-Bridget Jones’ Diary
Don’t get blinded by someone’s looks. Often, when people like someone,they get carried away by first impressions. In fact, most of the times we start to see them like we want them to be rather than as they truly are. Always know who you’re falling for and stay away from emotional fuckwittage.
Don’t Forget Yourself.
“This is what I need to become.”
This is one brilliant movie. Now and then, love leads you to self-discovery and that’s what you see happening with Elle. Her commitment to win her love back led her to explore and she found a new passion. Love is not always about two people, it’s also about yourself.
Even though Chick Flicks are considered to be girly, these love tips are not just limited to girls. Boys are not always hard and tough. They also have a soft corner in them that the society has forced them to hide. Love is for everybody. It does not discriminate on the basis gender, caste or religion. So the next time you watch Chick Flicks, try to look beyond the fantasy and you’ll come across helpful lessons.
