Am I alone in this?
I have always loved a good chick flick or romantic novel. Sure, you know how it will end, but I still love them.
It's an escape for me.
However, there is one thing that absolutely drives me NUTS about these types of movies and books.
I want to know what happens NEXT.
Right now I'm watching Dirty Dancing for the millionth time and find myself wanting to know, for the millionth time, what happens after that final dance. Do Baby and Johnny find a way to make it work? Marry and have 2.5 kids?
I also wonder why the "pretty" sister in Dirty Dancing looks like Freddie Mercury, but that's beside the point.
I'm the same way with books. Once the couple gets together in the end, I feel oddly ripped off when I don't know how far their relationship goes.
Of course IF they show you what happens "next" it's usually an indication that someone's about to be tragically killed in a car accident or get a terminal illness.
That sort of thing kills the romance, you know?
So am I the only one that feels this way?
