Do Love Novels Make Girls Dumber In Love?

They are always so naive, utopistic and really dumb.

I read romance novels but that doesn't make me dumb. I see like a fancy a place you run to when you are tired of what is going on around you. But the thing with these books is that it makes you self absorbed. You shut every one out and concentrate on the novel. I was like and when I realize that I was shutting everyone out, I reduced the rate at which I read.

The novel actually makes me conscious of relationships.

Yes they actually do. They make gals believe everythin always end right , d right man end s up with d right lady and leave happy ever after. meanwhile things dont always go in this direction in real life.

Havin said that one can't still take d novels away cuz it actually exposes these teenagers to some other kinda life.

i fink this is just a phase, real life eventually dawns on them and they move on from there,

this reads pretty tough of you u sure there isn't more dn meets d eye?

One question ever read any of these books?

Yes they encourage being naive and sort of helpless and desperate. and they provide an unreasonable expectation of a man that not many men can fullfill. they also make women believe they need to be either naive and pretty or average and slutty. I am credible because I thought a man needed to carry me on a pedestal when really we should both be supporting each other aboard a pedestal. and some of these novels encourage brutality in love making. , "

"He could not contain his passion and he grabbed her fiercely in a death grip and would not allow her to leave till she professed her undying devotion and love for him. he then planted a hot kiss against her Unclad lips and pressed them so hard it hurt and she yeled in pain and desire, etc

@ topic, Absolutely spot-on, minus the in love bit. . . . . . they never actually get to fall in love cuz they're always waiting for the novel's central xter to leap outta the pages and take em away to God-knows-where

another catalyst is Nollywood movies - but the novel aspect is just out of this globe!

I can testify for TOH. Those bosoms were extra ripe.

As for Tope, well David has done the propaganda. No eye witness and the picture I saw weren't satisfying.

I agree. It makes the women dumber and the annoying thing they expect the men they meet in real life to act like those fictional characters in the romance novels.

This is not a teenage issue. Even girls in theirs 20s still believe in prince charming, missing rib and soulmale BS.

When they get to their 30s, they start to ask why he is taking so long to arrive.

These novels teach these girls to be passive and they are a sexist propaganda on the roles of males and femals in the emotional sphere.

Used to read such books as a teenager. Made me feel life and love was that rosy. Later got sick of reading about the 'tan guy with lean, muscular, chiseled looks' and the evasive girl with 'full lips in a pout and blonde/auburn hair', blah blah blah. I get to read more intelligent works of fiction and non - fiction nowadays.

I know one, always love sick, but my advice is never allow an immature gurl to go thru all this shitty novels, they are likely to believe it happens in reality,

Believe it or not, Girls who read Love novels create a Mental picture for themselves of relationships that are not real. They imagine themselves in what I call 'THE IDEAL WORLD'. They create a mental picture of their Dream Men from the Imaginary Descriptions of: Tall Handsome Men with Broad Hairy Chest, well Built and all that they read from those Novels. Simply put, they live in a FAIRY TALE WORLD which creates a 'Relationship Wound' on their heart that is only healed by time (age).

Most novels, whether romance, love or others are fictional works.

To think that any gal wud apply those loads of crap into real-life r/ships is absurd.

No wonder many of 'em don't last in their r/ships.

And as 4d writer of such works, is all about making d money.

That's why they say BS sells well.

Both the novels and the girls. I am in Italy and there is this dumb writer who thinks he knows it all about the new generation. His books are very popular among the teens and I must say it is a shame.

We have teenage girls who can't reason their way out of a situation. How can you possibly read of an impossible love on a piece of paper and think you can apply the same thing in real life? The author may tell you all sort of poo to make his work sell, but for goodness sake you living this life know things aren't like that.
