The big screen may portray these guys as a beautiful mess, but in real life they're not. Having these movie boyfriends as your other half in real life will likely end up giving you more stress than smiles.

Of course we're not sure if the case of their breakup was entirely true or not, but imagine if your ex-boyfriend wrote horrible things about you online for the entire world to see. No person deserves to be humiliated, which was probably why Erica Albright broke up with Mark Zuckerberg.

We can think of a lot of reasons why being Edward's girlfriend is exhausting. One, there's always that possibility that he'll suck the life out of you... literally. Two, love is supposed to make you feel warm and fuzzy most of the time, but how can you feel that way if his skin's ice cold? Bid tight hugs and holding hands farewell. Three, he sparkles or glitters or shines bright like a diamond. That's just distracting and sometimes annoying.


Peter Parker/Spider-Man, The Amazing Spider-Man

He is handsome and smart, jackpot if you think about it. But having a superhero for a boyfriend is stressful. You'll worry about him day in and day out. You'll be forced to sacrifice your dates and moments for the greater good. Don't get us wrong, we love a guy who's got a big heart. But there's a huge possibility of you ending up as a casualty more than one of his priorities. Just look at what happened to Gwen Stacy, for crying out loud.


Sutter Keely, The Spectacular Now

Sutter has a lot of issues in life, and it can be exhausting to deal with him every single day. We know girlfriends are supposed to be there for their boyfriends, but aren't they also supposed to inspire each other? He may not tell you every problem he has with his family or himself, but the way his mood shifts from good to bad to worse is one way you can tell he's not yet ready for a relationship. And don't even get us started with his drinking problem and that moment when he left Amy in the middle of the road after an accident.


Jacob, Like Crazy

Jacob is romantic, hardworking, and very adorable in a dorky kind of way. The problem is his concept of being in a long distance relationship. To be fair, his girlfriend Anna has the same feelings about exploring options while they're apart. But relationships are commitments and you're supposed to stick to one while you're at it... even when the person you're in a relationship with is in a different country and a different time zone.

A Simple Learner Who's a Great Pretender

Maybe I'm just a learner, not a weirdo. A learner that knows how to listen and pretend. A simple learner who's a great pretender. Pretending to be slightly dumb enough not to be judged and criticized by those who do not appreciate my existence. We surround ourselves with people who's levels are either beyond or below our intellectual behavior, because as for reality, people may use you either for their success or your downfall. Since then, people tend to judge someone who has an intellect with things they shouldn't be. Making them a criticizer, and most of all, calling them weird.

Honestly, I'm one of this "weirdo" who actually loves to learn things, and for the record, I'm bullied and stressed out for making myself not to learn more and go with the flow to dumbness I had. Have you ever feel being assigned to some task where you know every process to make it easier and faster to finish but turns out to hesitate to voice out because some of your mates put themselves in charge. There are times where I know what to do, what to say, or how to react, but kept myself silent and pretend not to know anything that may help us. Maybe it's a good thing to just go with their ideas and learn from their perspectives, but sometimes you can't control it and says something, and once again called to be a weirdo and let you finish the work by yourself.

It's annoying that you only know one process yet they gave you the whole work and let you finish it by yourself because they insist that "MAGALING KA DIBA?". It's not your fault being an intellectual person, knowing such things that may help you to pursue your dreams, and have the basic knowledge about something. You don't need to know everything, just the basics. And as for those people who do not appreciate your existence, let them be and continue what's the best for you. In some cases, you'll be annoyed by this but most of the time you'll be thankful for it. Not for now but maybe later. Just be yourself either a weirdo, a great pretender, or a simple learner, and always remember to lower your voice and behavior because no one loves that.

Just be a great pretender not to hear any runts and be a good learner that appreciates everything. It's out of nowhere thoughts of mine, but simply I leave you this my favorite life quotation; "Don't introduce yourself, Let your success introduce you"
