Romantic Comedies Are Not Just For Couples

Everyone that knows me personally knows that I am a huge fan of romantic comedies. Even though I've had more friendships than relationships and I have been single for quite some time now, I never turn down the opportunity to go to the theater and watch a romantic comedy.

However, there is one thing that I've noticed that honestly disappoints me sometimes. Whenever I go to the theater by myself I tend to notice people giving me and a few other single people "The Eye." Sometimes, I am the only single person inside. Couples and best friends tend to wonder why single people are watching a romantic comedy by themselves. They won't come and ask you in person. They will look at you and then start asking questions in their head. There are times when I wish I was a mind reader.

I don't let it get to me. When something funny occurs in the movie, I am laughing my butt off in the theater the same as everybody else. When the movie is over I walk out and tell myself "That was a good movie."

This is something I want to encourage single people to do. You can go inside and watch a romantic comedy by yourself. Embrace the fact that you are single. I don't know where this crazy rumor came from that you cannot watch a romantic comedy just because you're single.

You belong anywhere a good movie is.
