Do T.V. shows, movies, and other forms of entertainment mess up our perceptions on datingPage 2 of 2    (1, 2)
Not with me it doesn't.

No more than me being an ace pilot in a WW2 Combat Flight Simulator I play makes me think " Man I could just go right out and jump into a Spitfire Supermarine and just totally own the skies over London"

Usually the people that may fall for this type of thing are living in a fantasy world anyway and think that the show/book is a training manual for the future.

To people based in reality it may be a form of escapism for a brief period of time.

There is no "reality" in reality television.

So do you agree with me that what we watch or read is messing up our concepts of dating? I believe this is why I see so many redundant threads on this site about meeting people, rejection, and date ideas.



Only for weak minded people, "monkey see monkey do". I can say though that their are people out there who have actually had those experiences that they show on television, you can't just make the sh&^ up. So yeah you got people "mirroring" entertainment "mirroring" them.

I'm curious, how would you rewrite the films if you were given the power?


i dream of making, directing, and acting in movies someday. this thread has inspired me to make a documentary about the perils of dating based on my experience on POF.
