What Do TV Shows And Movies Always Get Wrong About Love And Relationships?

It's never this way in real-life!

TV shows and movies are great and all, but sometimes they set up completely unrealistic expectations of love and relationships.

Maybe it annoys you that the protagonists always end up together against the odds.

Or perhaps you hate the fact that certain behaviours — like possessiveness — are painted as ~romantic,~ when they're actually problematic.

Or maybe you hate the last-minute rush for characters to profess feelings with completely over-the-top gestures that rarely happen in real-life.

There are a million things that pop culture gets wrong about love and relationships, so tell us in the DropBox below which unrealistic expectation bothers you the most, and the reason why. The best responses will feature in a BuzzFeed Community post or video.
