Chick Flicks


I watched Jane Eyre the other night. It dawned on me that this was just the re-telling of Beauty and the Beast. Albeit, Jane was very plain, but in Mr. Rochester's eyes she was beautiful.

When it was over I called Mr. Charm. I was in a romantic and teary mood and wanted to talk to a man. During the conversation it came up that no man would ever admit to seeing a movie like that. Well, he might but only if he prefaced it by saying, in a very deep manly voice his wife/girlfriend dragged him to it. If a guy admitted that he liked the movie he would lose his standing in the manly man club. Surprisingly, it took Mr. Charm about five minutes to come up with the title of just one romantic movie that he had ever seen (Titanic). I didn't expect this from a man who will stay on the phone with me for an hour and we won't even be talking.

I wondered if most men were like this and then I read the comments to da boys of 509 recent post about women and ice cream and men and steak. LT willingly wrote about the chick flicks he had seen. http://daboysof905.blogspot.com/

Do women find it attractive for men to hide the fact that they enjoy romantic movies or would they rather have their husband/boyfriend admit to liking them? And how do men feel about other men admitting they like romantic movies does it make them uncomfortable.

Doesn't bother me at all.

Then you must be a real man... because you are so self-assured and think that there's nothing wrong with liking it.
