My Best Friend’s Wedding (1997)
Independent and always busy with plans, you’re the type of person who still manages and wants to make time to spend with those closest to you. Not one to be underestimated, once you know what you want you make sure to go after it (a lot like Julianne) and usually succeed. At the moment you might not know what you’re looking for in a relationship, but it’ll come to you eventually.
Romance trope – Friends to lovers
10 Things I Hate About You (1999)
A modern retelling of Shakespeare’s ‘The Taming of the Shrew’, 10 Things I Hate About You is a classic 90s romcom. Like Kat, you probably have quite a tough exterior and find it harder to let people see the real you but are actually super soft on the inside. You’re not the type to let people walk over you but also care deeply about those that you are close to. In a partner, you want someone who is just as strong-willed as you but also has a sweet and romantic side.
Romance trope – Opposites attract
Bridget Jones’s Diary (2001)
It doesn’t matter whether you are team Daniel Cleaver or Mark Darcy – we’re here to talk about you. Prone to falling in love easily and finding yourself in some funny situations, you’re focused on working on yourself. As an easy-going person, you find that people are drawn to you and while your relationship status is probably what you might call ‘complicated’, that could just mean you’re basically living life as a romcom, right? It’s tricky to pinpoint exactly what you’re looking for in a partner since you don’t really just have one type.
Romance trope – Love triangle
From family to friends and lovers, you’re popular for good reason – you’re always open to helping others and want everyone else to be happy. In fact, you care so much about what other people think, which isn’t a bad thing, but you can’t let it dictate all your decisions. Don’t forget to live in the moment and look at what you have around you already. After all, your happiness is just as important!
Romance trope – Blind to love
Friends with Benefits (2011)
A confident and flirty individual, you enjoy the perks of single life including not having to rely on anyone else. However, while you try to put up a bit of a wall to protect yourself there is another side of you which equally dreams of love and wants to be swept off your feet. That’s why you need someone who is either similar to you leading to a FWB situation or destined to be the partner you’ve been looking for.
Romance trope – Friends with benefits (…obviously, it’s literally the film title)
When Harry Met Sally… (1989)
When it comes to love and relationships, you’re loud, bold, and always looking to have fun. You’re not the type to act coy or hide your feelings and that’s what draws people to you. Think about it, you’ve got the iconic scene of Sally (aka Meg Ryan) faking an orgasm in the middle of a busy diner – yep, that’s you all over. In looking for a partner, you need someone who’s intelligent and honest with you yet still has a sentimental side too.
Romance trope – Enemies to lovers
Okay okay, this may be a bit obvious, but you dream of a fairy tale romance. We’re talking about all the magical moments like kissing in the rain, love at first sight, singing and dancing together, cutesy nicknames for each other – the full works. Basically, when it comes to a relationship you want to be made to feel like a princess or take on the role of prince charming and live happily ever after.
Romance trope – Soulmates
13 Going on 30 (2004)
As a child, you always dreamed of being all grown up and taking control of your life. Although while saying that, you still love to act a bit of a kid and have been known to run to the middle of the dancefloor when your favourite song comes on. Sometimes you feel a bit misunderstood, but you don’t let that get you down for too long. In a partner, you look for someone else who doesn’t take life too seriously and can live a fun and happy life together.
Romance trope – Childhood sweethearts
