Movies and TV shows portray love in beautiful and grand ways that it's so easy for you to get lost in the color and glamour of it all. So here's a list of things to remind you that you don't always have to take the things you see onscreen seriously.

The Grand Gestures

IRL, it's not always the biggest declarations of love that will make you weak in the knees. There are times when the quiet romantic moments—the ones you don't share with anybody else—are the ones that truly matter, like when you're both seated on a bench, holding each other's hands in silence. The sweet and quiet moments are usually the ones that linger.

In the words of How I Met Your Mother’s Robin Scherbatsky, "If you have chemistry you only need one other thing–timing, but timing's a b**ch." Even if you have this great love going on for you and that cutie but the timing is not right (a.k.a. No Boyfriends Allowed While In School), it still won't happen—unless, of course, you defy your parents' rules and go all rebel kid on them.

No, girls, you don't need to be made over in Mia Thermopolis level to have the guy of your dreams. Know your assets and highlight them. Work and flaunt 'em a la Beyonce. Believe it or not, you are beautiful just the way you are.

The Infinite Number of Chances

There are things in life when you only get a single chance to make things work. So grab whatever chances you get wisely, and give it your best shot. You never know if you're going to get a second chance years later or not—unless you're Ryan Gosling or Zac Efron, of course, in which case congratulations.

The Need For Rescuing

No, you don't need to be rescued. You don't need a guy to make you realize how delightful you are or that you need to get your act together. You need you and the amazing woman that you are. Girl power, lovelies!
