In my last post, I talked about Romcom guys — those men who are romantic and emotionally available and will do anything for you… and other totally creepy things. They’re the guys who seem great to start and will say sweet things and you’ll think, ‘he likes me! He really likes me!” until he turns into the male version of Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction and all of a sudden you’re dealing with this mess: (serious spoiler alert!)
But it’s not only Romcom men who are a misguided byproduct of Hollywood hype. We’re taught to want and to expect very specific things that are both unrealistic and actually unwanted when it comes down to brass tacks. So what exactly are these confusing characters from the silver screen?
