I’m looking at you, Noah from The Notebook.
When you’re watching a movie, ESPECIALLY a rom-com, it’s easily to get caught up in all the ~feels.~
However, once the credits roll, you may begin to realize that some moments that seemed “romantic” would actually be SUPER creepy if they happened to you IRL
So, when Redditor u/Dabrigstar asked, “What’s something that is romantic in movies but creepy in real life?” the answers were enough to make me rethink a TON of classic rom-coms.
