Happily Never After

Why aren't movie characters real?

Okay, so I accept and acknowledge that Jack Dawson, Noah Calhoun, Alex Stewart and any character that Channing Tatum has played do not exist and are only fictional, but why? It's characters like Superman, Harry Potter and The Doctor that cannot ever be possible, but why is being a genuine, lovely, caring person who loves every bone of someone's being, and just wants to love them and wants them to be happy, so impossible to find or be? Surely these characters were based on real people, and if that's what girls and guys wanted then, why don't people want that now?

The culture that we live in now makes these characters impossible to even imagine. This culture only praises the 'LADS' who sleep with and fuck over girls by the dozen, with their idols being Gaz and Scotty T, which in return is making girls idolise the Geordie Shore girls and other similar types of people, i.e. unhealthily skinny, fake, slutty idiots.

Why do people not want the movie-style, fairytale relationship? Because they don't exist, right? Well yes, but only because these type of people do not exist anymore. Call me old fashioned, but what is so terrifying about only talking to one girl/guy at a time and actually committing to them? What is the point of 'seeing each other'? You're either together, or you're not. I mean, there's playing hard to get, there's the chase that initially makes getting to know each other fun, but then that guy gradually becomes 'busy' and that means too busy to talk to you, even though you know he's speaking to other girls.

When Taylor said all this, I wanted to teleport all of my exes to London to listen to her.


I'm not saying girls are perfect either, I'm sure plenty of guys have been messed about by girls just like the guys mess around the girls, and obviously there are the few anomalies who are actually lovely guys and girls, but they've already been nabbed because someone has seen the good in them, and I am horrendously jealous of those people, but I can only speak from personal experience. And I'm not going to lie, I do speak to guys, I get with people when I'm out, I'm not a prude, but it's really just because I have no other option. Maybe I've just had a bunch of tossers in my time, but frankly, I'm yet to see any other type. There was one guy who was so close to it, to sound cliché, I actually thought he was different and something good was happening, but that quickly came crashing down after the 'one month free trial', that I apparently have written on my head, was over.

It may be sad and pathetic, and show that there's obviously something wrong with me, that I haven't had a proper boyfriend for 4 years, and those 4 years have been where people have told me to just 'have fun', but speaking to multiple guys just to be fucked over after a couple of weeks for a skinnier, prettier, funnier girl every single time, is not what I class as 'fun'. I would much rather be with one person for months where we actually like each other for who we are and want to make each other happy, that's what I would call 'fun'. And anyway, these people that tell me to just 'have fun' forget that as a girl, if I was to sleep with a number of guys, I would then be a slag/slut/whore, and that is not fun either.

Can I marry the guy who wrote this?

Why does nobody want happily ever after anymore?!

Panic! at the lockdown

Helloooo! (read that in Mrs Doubtfire's voice please) It's me, if anyone remembers me, I'm here! It's been nearly 3 months since I last posted on here, and there's no excuse really other than the fact I've just been too lazy. I will say I've been lacking ideas a little bit recently, maybe because I've been happy, I haven't had anything to moan about (and that's the tea ☕👀), but there's been something pretty big going on the last few weeks hasn't there. I'm being a bit hypocritical with this post, because I'm sick of hearing about Coronavirus/Covid-19 and not being able to escape from it, but because of it, that's what has inspired this post. If you're also sick of hearing about it, please don't close the tab, the post is more about me (if you're new here, it's a common topic), rather than the ' thing ' itself. So the last couple of months while it's all been kicking off, I've been rela

Anxiety & Me: having the BBC pay for therapy is nice, but is it real?

Oh hey, me again. I watched the BBC programme last month called Anxiety and Me  featuring Nadiya Hussain and I thought I would write a blog post about it, because I know my opinion is so important and people live based on what I say (I'm joking, just in case you can't sense the sarcasm there)! Just for anyone who is new here (hi!), I have been diagnosed with Anxiety since 2015 but I think I've actually had it for a lot longer than four years. Overall, I thought it was great. I thought it gave a really good understanding of how Anxiety can feel for someone, and even my boyfriend of nearly 4 years said he learned more about the illness and how it can make me feel. So clearly, it was very informative and clear. I loved how raw and real it was: I started crying after the first five minutes because it hit me so hard. ( Disclaimer: I'm going to openly talk about things that happen in the programme so if you wanted to watch it first go and do that now!) At the start wh

"Sometimes in life, you aren't enough for someone"

Hello! Long time no see - apologies about that. I've been pretty busy actually, I've been on holiday, moved house and got a new job, so my little blog has kind of suffered because of it, but I'm still here! Now call me a basic white girl, a basic bitch, or however you describe people who are obsessed with crappy reality TV, Starbucks and shops at In The Style, but this post is actually inspired by the recent break up between Zara and Adam from Love Island (please keep reading, this isn't a post about Love Island!). Some of you may have read Zara's official statement, I'm sure a lot of you couldn't care less, but it was something in this statement that has given me an idea for this post. She wrote about the breakup, 'sometimes in life, you aren't enough for someone', and reading this broke my heart. I'm sure a lot of people reading this, will know exactly how this feels: whether it's a friend, a boyfriend/girlfriend/partner, a famil
