Chick flicks are sappy, cheesy, and corny. But dammit, these movies are the gospel to understanding women!
It’s our favorite time of the year—that’s aside from Christmas and the FHM 100 Sexiest Victory Party; okay, it’s our THIRD favorite time of the year! But who’s counting, right? What’s more important is it’s now February. The love month. The okay-lang-magwaldas-para-sa-date month. The only month men are allowed to be ultra-cheesy.
But do you have any idea HOW to be cheesy? Are you and your girlfriend/missus constantly bickering about your lack of romance? Do you attribute your singlehood to your lack of wooing skills? Well, we’re going to solve these all for you! FHM will be dishing out daily how-to-be-a-Don-Romantiko tips the whole month of February!
Gentlemen, welcome to FHM’s 28 Days Of Romansahan!
DAY 22: Romansahan Lessons You Can Learn In Chick Flicks
We tend to avoid watching chick flicks. They're full of girly elements that are too much for our testosterone-filled body to handle. We fear its cheesiness and the danger that we may turn into sappy fools when we watch it.
But you know what, if you want to understand a thing or two about how to win a girl's heart, you should watch rom-coms,
However, if you really can't see yourself sitting through another Toni Gonzaga feature, we took it upon ourselves to watch a handful of chick flicks to extract all the love lessons contained in it.
You're welcome, bro! Now, scroll down for the list while we continue our search for our yagballs!
IT PAYS TO HAVE A "BIG MOVE"
As seen on: Crazy Stupid Love
When Hanna (Emma Stone) asked Jacob (Ryan Gosling) what his big move is, he reveals that he usually works the movie Dirty Dancing into the conversation, which leads to a re-enactment of its intimate dance scene. And when it happens, boom goes the dynamite. We suggest you come up with something of a similar nature. It pays to have a go-to move.
JUST BE YOURSELF AND WIN POGI POINTS IN RETURN
As seen on: Notting Hill
Even though Anna Scott (Julia Roberts) is a larger-than-life celebrity, Will (Hugh Grant) didn't need to do much to impress her. He dressed, talked, and charmed her like the consummate everyman that he is. He kept it real the whole time, and in the end he gets the girl.
JUST BECAUSE SHE'S A SLOPPY DRESSER DOESN'T MEAN SHE'S NOT PRETTY
As seen on: She's All That, A Walk To Remember, A Cinderella Story
