Romance novels get the bad rap of setting unrealistic expectations for women. They cause us to think that men have to be perfect, that they all are... well-endowed... that biker bars are where we will find our true love and hope that time travel is a possibility so we can travel back to the 1700s' Scotland and find a Jamie for our own.
Mostly, I think these assumptions and arguments of “unrealistic expectations” don't allow for women to have a fantasy life, which is pretty vital for living a happy and healthy life. However, do you think there's some truth to the stereotype? Where did you ever have an unrealistic expectation due to a romance? Do you still think it's unrealistic? What do you say to people who spout this rhetoric?
