lack of warmth: Anne.Uumellmahaye: Hubby washed my hair once. I had just had surgery to remove my cancer-riddled thyroid and a few lymph nodes. I was drugged to oblivion but I felt so gross and wasn't supposed to get my stitches wet. So he washed my hair as I sat in the tub, drugged out, stinky, and with a number of stitched up bloody gashes.

It's not always teh sexay time you might imagine...

Not at that time, but it bought him some sexy time later. I am sure of this, for it is the only reason men do those kind of things. That and a sammich.


How romantical of you.

Sexy? Maybe not. Romantic? AS ALL HELL


Yep.  One memory I have from when I was living with my parents was shortly after my mom got foot surgery on both her feet.  She was not supposed to put much weight on them, so when she needed to go to the bathroom my dad started to pick her up after she sat up and got to the side of the bed.  Because she knows my dad's back isn't great, she did her best to put some weight on her feet to avoid hurting his back, while he did his best to make sure she wouldn't touch the ground.  That's love right there.

GameSprocket: xynix: I sometimes wash my girlfriends hair.. Sometimes I even blow dry it and brush it.

There is nothing wrong with this.

3. The man who falls in love with a perfect stranger that he's never met, never seen and doesn't know anything about. At all.

Dat motherf*cker got catfished!

None of the women in those movies exist in real life either.

Sadly. Gosling's worst role is what he's most famous for

My dad wrecked his motorcycle a couple years after my folks got married. He ended up in a cast up to his hip for 6 weeks. Those were not my mom's favorite 6 weeks.

Crap, I think I may have contracted diabetes.

/best I ever did was drive 40 miles to my girlfriend's dorm to clean up her floor after she hurled everywhere and was too sick to clean it up

thamike: DrZiffle: The misses watches Out of Africa every damn time it's on, just to see Robert Redford wash Meryl Streep's greasy head.

Maybe you should offer to wash her hair once in awhile.


Nope. I think it's RR or nothing.

Difficulty: 1988 Robert Redford

gadian: My husband can wash my hair any time he likes. He does it juuuust right and with the tiniest bit of a massage.


Go on ...

4. The guy who says things like, "As you wish!" and "I will always come for you," then safely leads you through something called a "fire swamp," which is filled with quicksand and rodents of an unusual size.

This guy doesn't exist? Inconceivable!

I always look forward to the daily dose of nonsense from Buzzfeed. They're quickly becoming one of the worst things o the internet.

I wouldn't say that. There will always be something worse. Like, say, the moron who takes time out to complain about it.

Troy McClure: How about every guy from a Hallmark Channel movie. Every one of those assholes is:

- a widower who tragically lost his wife several years back (long enough ago not to be weepy about her)
- the best single dad ever OR the best potential dad ever who instantly becomes best friends with the protagonist's kid
- an animal lover and environmentalist
- usually accompanied by the happiest piano music
- rich OR at least wealthy enough to be able to do whatever he wants
- an artist, musician, or poet who makes art for the love of it
- so much nicer than the selfish man the protagonist is with when the movie begins


How do you... uh... know this?

someonelse: None of the women in those movies exist in real life either.


What are you talking about? You can't throw a rock in a high-school cafeteria without getting sued by the parents of a vapid, self-obsessed moron like Bella from Twilight, and there are plenty of women who are bad enough people to try to string two suitors along without telling them, or intentionally set them against each other.

Actually, that's the point of most of these movies, and it's why they're girly movies. The female lead is supposed to sort of be a placeholder for a female viewer for them to vicariously live out their fantasies, so they're kept pretty realistic in themselves, what's changed is the way the narrative and setting respond to said relatively normal character (habits that would result in potential boyfriends noting calmly that the woman is a terrible person and getting the fark out are treated as "quirky" and lovable, certain behaviors like cheating are perfectly understandable minor errors of judgement on the woman's part but indicators of pure, unbridled evil in the man, and so on).

Now, the women that exist in movies targeting an overwhelmingly male demographic in similar fashion? Yeah, those are imaginary. Especially porn, but honorable mention goes to the absurdly hot and athletic woman whose shared danger with the protagonist makes her want to bone him instead of, you know, use her own abilities to escape said danger and ditch this dangerously unstable motherfarker who keeps slow-walking away from explosions.

I read half the thread and skipped ahead to say this: If you guys don't shampoo your women, you're cheating the both of you.

Do it VERY slowly, thoroughly and forcefully.

This is the best advice you've ever received. If you fail to follow it, you're a chump.

I'm going to quote this just to repeat it.

I have an exquisitely sensitive scalp. If my husband followed your advice, it would end up in a lot of pain and tears for both of us.

Then in your case, he should do it slowly, thoroughly and very very gently.

#3 exists, but is usually arrested for stalking or given orders of protection.

A man, yes.

A straight man, no.
 
2013-01-28 02:37:43 PM  
actually, i think that there are people in real life who are much better, more attractive/romantic, than these fantastic archetypes.

many of these characters exist and are pretty much assholes in real life. I mean, how many times does a movie guy have to tell someone how to live? that's pretty asshole behavior in my opinion.

List fails without "Adaptation".

Is shampooing your girlfriend's hair in the shower an unpopular thing to do? I don't understand that.

There certainly is a whole lot of infidelity in chick flicks, now that you mention it, and a lot of sexual and emotional manipulation. IMHO, the worst offending movie that I've seen was "My Best Friend's Wedding." Julia Roberts' character was a terrible person and made me want her to fail.
