Everyday on CafeMom a number of us has some man drama going on. Either they are not paying us enough attention of we have fallen for the bad boy. Do you think our pop culture sets us up to fail? I mean no one can honestly tell me that Edward and Bella, or even Romeo and Juillette had healthy relationships.

I don't think the romanticising of couples or relationships in a storyline causes the readers expectations to change. I see it as an escape. Just an opportunity to live in someone else's shoes for an hour and go through some craziness that isn't going to be reality in your own life. I liked the Twilight characters b/c I could relate to that 'not-so-perfect, but it works', kind of relationship; that unrequited love that makes you do crazy things. I can understand that. Its just fun and exciting w/o real life drama.
