If romance in movies is bullshit then why does it turn women on?

...often beats reality (yet such romance is sometimes real). Hell, how many of us humans do not sometimes live in imagination (or delusion or illusion)?

@thatgirllaura Yep, reality often sucks...sometimes, though, such is a matter of perspective. Did I mention that the sole positive thing I derived from the war (other than getting back alive) is the understanding that no matter what happens, you just pick up your fucking pack and keep moving? By no means, though, is Pollyanna a rewarding course.


I'm guessing it turns some women on. Many people have sexual fantasies or have triggers for it. Fairly obvious IMO.


Because fantasy is fun. Just like the fantasy of having the ability to fly like Superman.

Most people like fairy tales in one form or another.


It's not always bullshit. When you find it, it can be special. It was for my longtime partner and me.


The forbidden fruit angle. We want what we can't have

Also if our significant others did half of the stuff the super hot charasmatic guys in movies did we'd call the cops lmao


Because we want it to be real, even though we know it’s bullshit........we are hardwired romantics! Pretty Woman springs to mind.........ahh..Richard Gere!!


I hope you are asking the women. If you ladies don't know the answer, you certainly can't expect us to know. I'm still trying to figure out why women like soaps and the Housewives of Anywhere USA.


I think it’s the notion that it could possibly happen and honestly who wouldn’t wanna be swept off their feet like that?

Women fall for BS?

@Donotbelieve No, it was a stupid response and not very nice either.




Because we all like fantasies, I'll bet you even have a few.


Is there proof that it does ?

@thatgirllaura ...thoughtful , caring and respectful .
I'm 3 for 3 , but ... not a movie star .
