12+ Pics That Prove Love Ain't Like The Movies

Diply 29 Jun 2018

When you think of the word "romance," your brain probably conjures up some pretty classic examples. Maybe you were hoping to be the Disney princess type, or perhaps you've been searching for the Ryan Gosling to your Emma Stone. But reality tends to have different plans for most of us.

I met my girlfriend the traditional way. You know, starting a Dungeons & Dragons campaign and showing off my 12th-level paladin with the +2 broadsword — who could resist that?! But since that sweeping romance is now in the past, our relationship basically plays out like a series of clips from America's Funniest Home Videos.

Luckily, thanks to my endless hours spent on the internet, I've come to learn that a lot of couples are more like us than the couples you'd see in those old Tom Hanks flicks. So, let's check out these people who definitely prove that real-life love isn't always going to be like the movies.

1. I think his face says it all, really.

But hey, if you want a marriage to last, you do whatever goofy chore your SO is asking you to do. She's about to hit 30 followers, for sure!

2. Sometimes, it's the little things that matter most.

What? Would you rather wear some small sandals to your lecture or risk bae dropping a flask of acid on her feet?! Okay, maybe it's not that extreme, but missing lab would suck.

3. What's the point of living with someone if you can't prank 'em, right?

These screenshots are actually from a video submitted to AFV, and the prank is hilarious! Unsuspecting wife in bathroom, husband with camera — boom! These are the opportunities all husbands live for.

4. A bouquet of flowers — now that's some classic romance, right?

Me.me | Me.me

Well, probably not so much when they've been straight-up snatched out of someone else's garden. At least he looks pretty proud of himself, smh.

5. It's important to challenge one another, just don't make yourself sick!

In case the Snapchat text is too small to read, here's the sitch. Basically, this guy's girlfriend always said she could eat four whole "4 for $4" meals. Thankfully, she tapped out before she exploded.

6. Long walks on the beach? Nah, more like WWE SummerSlam.

Sometimes you gotta work out your rivalry like John Cena and The Undertaker...

...but these two look more like the real-life version of every Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore movie relationship.

7. Well, it's gonna be even weirder when he tries to cook his eggs on a tennis racket, right?

And who knows, maybe this is just the kind of advantage she was looking for?!

8. You love your partner, but it's important to not lose touch with your friends.

And what's a partner for if not making that time the best it can possibly be? Jokes on them when they start a Dutch oven from all that cheese, though.

9. Here's a prank only a woman could pull.

AFV | AFV

From yet another AFV video, this pregnant woman told her husband that her water broke. He was so concerned and sweet, but walked right away when she told him it was a prank. You can see how hard she was laughing in that last shot!

10. Not exactly the most exciting "adult time" anyone's offered, but this is real life.

It's like that classic saying goes — the only sure things in life are Legos and taxes. Gotta find a balance.

11. Just out here tryin' his best, ya know?

Instagram | @hopleasejesus

Weirdly enough, I think that's actually kale — which just makes this way, way worse. Kale is the cardboard cousin of lettuce.

12. A picture-perfect present, for sure.

Instagram | @relationships.usa

Yeah, it's a prank gift, but really, I don't think any SO would complain. This person actually has the right reaction, and it's so cute that I think I'm gonna be sick.

13. A gift of your talent truly comes from the heart.

Twitter | @lexieatsass

Not that you really need a whole lot of talent to pull this one off. Again, it's the thought that counts, people!

14. Then again, if you're good enough, maybe that Disney princess fantasy can come true?!

Twitter | @lyanaazman

Well, it makes for some great pics, at least.

15. Just be honest with each other and say what your heart desires most.

Twitter | @AnnikaAgs

Clearly, for a lot of us, our heart truly desires chicken nuggets. I'd take this romance over the Sleeping Beauty kind any day.

16. This is the only time you're allowed to step on your girl, btw.

And, at the end of the day, you know that no one else will ever have the same shoes as you!
