Recipe for a Romance Film




Nothing beats a really good romance film (though you might not agree aloud). You know when its good when you have to pause it and scream into your pillow (girls) or watch it again and again (girls and boys). Ever wonder why it makes you feel all warm and buttery? Some may argue ‘Just because it is’, but in reality it’s a recipe. This recipe can vary from cook to cook but not all their food turns out right...

Now, I’m going to tell you a few of the things that Girls like.

1. Friendship before love = perfect relationship, (love at first sight has gotten corny)
2. Awkward moments (good when not done too often).
3. An element of mist (a common term used when they can’t be together that easily)
4. Things that show how perfect they are for each other -- before they know they are in love.
5. Itzy bitzy bit of corny-ness... followed by randomness <3






6. Girls like gentlemen for love and bad boys to faun over in magazines, so get it right -- no sweet girl marrys a rock star (harsh but true)
7. Teenage love is a great place to start <3
8. NEVER EVER EVER HAVE THEM ASK EACH OTHER OUT OVER A COMPUTER CHAT OR IN FRONT OF OTHERS UNLESS IT HAS A DIRECT LINK TO THE STORY LINE.... o.e
9. With the first kiss you need to nail it. They both need eye contact and it has to mean something special




10. Little thing’s need to be added in, like same color pallet of clothes, similar interests, the graphic below is a perfect example

11. NO HILL BILLY ACCENTS FOR THE GUYS -- NOT CUTE! :3
12. Keep the makeup the same between shots-- Keanu Reeves, Walk in the Clouds, last scene, FAIL!!!!!! (loved it doh!!!!)
13. No exchanging of bad poetry, its lame and an ear sore. >.<
14. Though its sad, its very romantic for someone to die... -- not in the creepy sense but e.g. Love Story, Romeo and Juliet, and TITANIC... these are probably the best examples of love stories and at least one of them dies in all of them!
15. People love seeing them over come obstacles with each other -- it gives a scense of companionship... <3




And thats the way the cookie crumbles <3
