There are so many romance movie cliches that are so unrealistic that they just make you laugh real hard and sometimes fall off your chair. From awkward profession of love to strangers declaring they are soulmate or weird random out-of-the-blues coordinated dance (those that watch Zee World will understand).
These cliches can mess up your love life because as impractical as they seem, they are very believable which makes some people enter a relationship unrealistic expectations.
I trust my Naija people, though. Here are 10 Romance Movie Cliche That Won’t Happen In Naija
1. Bride running away on her wedding day to be with her true love
After all the money spent in preparation for the wedding, sister now finally realized she has a true love somewhere. LOL, Iffa hear
2. Love birds kissing in the rain
Seriously? Kissing in rain because? This seems very romantic until the girl begins to shiver or village people sends thunder.
3. Wind blowing at the perfect moment
I know what you are thinking. How in the world does the wind know this is a perfect moment? I wonder too.
4. Bumping into the opposite sex and getting up in slow motion, looking into each other’s eyes
Chances are, if this happens in real life, either or both of you would get hurt, or one of you calling the other person blind. Just imagine Lagos, where everyone is in a hurry. The most you will get is a “sorry”.
5. Falling in love at first sight
So what happens when you discover the person you fell in love with is a psycho? You fall out of love?
6. A stalker being portrayed as a romantic
LOL. Naija babes will block you straight. It’s disgusting.
7. A partner behaving like a child and the other partner helping them get their life back together
Hey! No one gat the time to help you get your life back. Go get your life back and come back when you are done.
8. Running through the airport to make up with bae
This climax has been used repeatedly in Hollywood movies. You see a character running through the airport to catch their lover before he/she flies away into forever. Awwwn. Isn’t that cute? LOL. Try that in Naija and all you will get is strange stares from onlookers wondering if you’ve lost a nut upstairs. Or Imagine you trying to run with your sweaty body through the customs and security checkpoint; Jail straight.

9. A rich person falling in love with a poor person immediately after meeting them
Naso! A gutter rat or a street person getting the attention of a rich and highly sophisticated individual would not happen in real life. Not usually, anyway. No matter how initially charmed they are by their disparity, sooner or later, reality will kick in, and all that would fade away. This can only happen when the disadvantaged one has raised his or her standard a little bit.
