We shouldn’t feel bad that our lives don’t look anything like the singles' shows and films we watched growing up.
Sex and the City, in particular, deconstructed female relationships and pushed the boundaries of the rom com as a genre.
On this side of the pond we had Bridget Jones who seemed to be suggesting that the state of affairs would be considerably less than glam, although, still pretty exciting for a suburban teenager trying to imagine life beyond drinking too many Archers and lemonades and getting off with the same boy, again.
There is no detectable sadness amongst my single friends (and I don’t remember feeling any when I was single) that we aren’t going out on glamorous dinner dates with a different person every night, skipping from bar to bar in shoes we can’t walk in or leaving our friends to go off into the night with a handsome stranger.That said, the general consensus is that it would be good if people started to talk to eachother IRL again and stopped hiding behind their i Phones.Soon after I’d finished asking my questions, the conversation turned to work, politics and whether or not we were realistically going to be able to get up at 6am on Sunday to take our unwanted clothes and flog them at a car boot sale (our intentions are good, but no, probably not).‘Nobody talks to anyone when you’re out’ they tell me, ‘how are you ever supposed to meet anyone?’ My former flatmate, a Texan who made it to London via New York noted that what happens in London is less dating more ‘let’s get wasted, have sex and never speak of it or to each other ever again.’ I asked some of my other non-American friends whether they thought we had much of said culture in this country. That said, this conversation took place while we all sat on the floor of on of our rented flats, shared relationship stories and discussed partners past, present and prospective over dinner.
