Red Flags That We Love To See In Fiction, But Would Be A Hard Pass In Real Life

In real life, we like to have standards for ourselves. We wouldn't appreciate it if a random guy showed up at our house unannounced, or threw rocks at our window in the middle of the night, you see, that's called trespassing. But in movies, books, plays, we eat all that sh*t up like a steaming bowl of brown sugar oatmeal. A troubled boy who has slight anger issues and treats most women terribly? Sounds like a classic love interest from an erotic novel, and obviously we're rooting for him.

    It was Reddit user u/cutiemaan who asked people to share things that are red flags in real life but very lovable in books. Let's be honest we love drama, we want to see a messy relationship that isn't meant to work out until book 7.

    This s so true. It would be hella suspicious if some random dude showed such extreme interest in us after a minute of knowing us. That would make us run really quickly, and perhaps consult with the police.

    Font - crazynekosama · 18h I love the romance genre and there's a lot there that I would never tolerate IRL but love to read. Mainly heros that are brooding, aggressive, domineering, controlling, etc. The more angst the better. The more melodrama the better.

    Rectangle - idunno324 · 19h "Defending someone's honour" by fighting them, most movies/books I usually hate the character too so I enjoy watching them get knocked out. If I saw it in real life I would run a mile

    Font - No-Strength2851 · 17h An aggressive crazy asshole who's actually just a broken person who can be fixed through love. A hard pass in real life but a hell yes in fiction.
