We're suckers for gathering our favourite snacks and enjoying a really good movie, but one major downside to spending so much time in fantasy world is that adjusting to reality can be quite difficult.
Here are a load of everyday events that the film industry has effectively ruined for us.
1. Being asked on a date
Unless you're inviting us to a party by dressing up in a full tux, getting down on bended knee, and kissing our hand, we're not completely convinced you actually want us there.
2. Buying a book
You mean, we're not likely to meet Hugh Grant, and he's not going to offer us a book free of charge? And you're saying there's no chance we'll bump into a famous person and end up, after a series of mistakes, staying together forever?
3. Getting on a tube
Because if we now miss a train by a few seconds we wonder if the love of our love was sitting on it and we've missed our chance forever.
4. Having a stranger offer you change
If we're short and somebody offers us ten pence does that mean that person is potentially our soulmate, or are they just being a decent human being? Guess we'll never know.
5. Dropping things
Some gorgeous specimen will surely stop in their tracks, help us pick up our books, catch our eye, and subsequently fall in love with us. Nobody? Nope. Just us, picking up our crap.
We're gonna hit Prada, Gucci, and Balmain and buy the outfit of literal dreams. Or we'll buy some half-price jeans in the New Look sale and still feel pretty good about them.
Because unless you're gonna stand on the bleachers and sing a Frankie Vallie song for the whole school to hear, are you even that sorry?
8. Letters of devotion
Allie received a romantic letter a day. Meanwhile all we get in our post is bills. And the occasional reminder about an overdue sight test.
9. Getting caught in the rain
Usually accompanied by a pivotal emotional moment in the plot and ending with a dramatic kiss, the reality is just looking like you've jumped in the bath and electrocuted yourself, while you're left wondering if you'll ever invest in waterproof mascara.
10. Blossoming in adulthood
Because Josie Grossy wasn't Josie Grossy forever, but are most people that unrecognisable from their school days? Probs not.
