One of the best-seller book is the romance novel. Both male and female teenagers and young adults visit the bookstores to check for the latest copy of books. There are quite a lot of good writers with good stories. Readers would definitely choose the book written by the romance novelist that they love.

Since teenagers and young adults are in the age of being attracted to someone very easily, they are also the ones who usually read romance novels or watch romantic movies. Why? In the romance novels or any romantic movies, the hero or heroine is almost perfect. It seems like he or she is a perfect ideal guy or girl.

But, it’s time to wake up from your daydreaming. Most of the events written or filmed are just purely imagination. For someone, it may happen in real life. However, it is almost impossible! Reality is more important that just an imagination. Of course, it’s not bad to have your almost-perfect-guy or girl. But, in reality, we are all lacking in many things.

The most important thing to do when you fell in love to someone is “understanding and acceptance”. For you to have an almost- perfect-relationship, show that you understand, accept, love, and care for each other. Don’t be stuck by the romance novels or romantic movies that you are reading or watching. It’s important to face the reality!
