Tips on Dating, Love & Relationships from Cinema & TV Shows! What to Do/What NOT to Do!
Are you tired of the dating game? Do you feel that your life is filled with too much drama? What about the “significant other” in your life– are they really there for you? Are you just part of their posse or their backup person? Would you be better off going alone?
Think The Walking Dead and Harry Potter offer only entertainment? Think again! Before your readers plan their next date or take things to the next level with their special someone, they may want to re-watch some beloved TV shows and movies. JDate.com’s Resident “Kosher Cinema” guru and JMag contributor Jonathan Maseng offers 10 tips we all can learn from celluloid love.
Below are a few key –but abbreviated– pointers are below, and make sure you check out the entire article. There are some very savvy tips there that work for both sexes, any religion and are just plain smart!
· Don’t pretend to be who you’re not.
In the Curb Your Enthusiasm episode “The Hero,” Larry takes credit and receives praise for stopping an abusive passenger on a flight, when in reality he tripped and accidentally tackled the man.. In the end, Larry is so pressured by keeping up the lie that his relationship falls apart. Maseng advises, “When you lie about who you are, it’s going to catch up with you. And if your friends find out about those lies, especially if they’re on your profile, you’re going to be a laughingstock. So skip the lies, and stick with the truth.”
· Don’t move in together until you’re ready.
As True Blood’s Sookie can testify after letting Eric sleep in her basement, moving in together is a big step and not something that should be taken lightly. Maseng encourages couples to “make sure your relationship is strong enough before you attempt the big move, because the strain of living together has wrecked many a relationship.”
· Try your best to be punctual.
We’re talking to you, Spiderman! Many of Peter Parker and Mary Jane’s relationship woes stemmed from Peter’s habitual lateness, and who can blame Mary Jane for being upset? “Try and be punctual, even if you have to fight LA traffic, the New York City subway system, or like Peter, the Green Goblin.”
· Tell them you love them.
Don’t be Princess Leia, shouting your love for your Han Solo as he’s slowly frozen in Carbonite. If you truly love someone, tell them! “This doesn’t mean you should declare your undying love for someone on the second date (don’t, it generally doesn’t go well),” Maseng warns, “but it does mean you shouldn’t be stingy with the L word.”
