8 Movie Summer Romances College Girls Would Actually Commit Felonies To Have In Real Life

Summer is the season of romance.


Summer is the best time of year to fall in love. The weather is always beautiful and no one is crammed with the reality of real life. It's the perfect time to dive into a new relationship with someone.

The only problem? Your expectations are probably super high due to these eight movie couples.

What's better than falling in love in the summer? Falling in love in the summer in GREECE. Lena and Costas' Romeo and Juliet love story is something everyone wishes would happen to them when away in a beautiful foreign country.

Nicholas Sparks is the king of romance, but what he does best is summer romance. Will and Ronnie are two opposites but fall hard for each other over the course of the summer. Their relationship stems from trying to save baby sea turtles together. What's more romantic than that?

4. Baby and Johnny from "Dirty Dancing"

Baby's upper class family travels to a summer resort where she falls in love with the dance teacher, Johnny. They say dance is one of the many languages of love, and it proves true with these two. No one puts Baby in the corner.

5. Mitchie and Shane from "Camp Rock"

Summer camp sounds awesome to begin with, but falling in love with a pop star while there makes it even better. Mitchie and Shane's duet to "Gotta Find You" at the end of the movie is the real reason why I believe in love.

6. Donna and Sam from "Mamma Mia" and "Mamma Mia 2"

These two had a bit of a whirlwind romance when they were young, but it ended after Donna found out Sam was engaged. Years and years later, the two reunite and end up together, proving that fate always brings you back to who you belong with.

7. Danny and Sandy from "Grease"

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

- Though as a little girl, I had the silkiest, softest hair that would get compliments everywhere I went, since I turned about thirteen I've since had coarse, dry hair no amount of deep conditioning masks or sulfate-free shampoo could fix.

- I started using the Raincry's Condition Boar Bristle Brush several months ago, and while I noticed that my hair had been softer, silkier, and shinier than it had ever been, I didn't make the connection because I never thought a simple hairbrush could make any difference in my hair texture.

- I will be the first to admit that I thought it was ridiculous to spend nearly a hundred dollars on a hairbrush, but this one eliminates the need for me to use any heat tools or styling products on it.

- I put some oil or a serum in my hair when it's wet, brush my hair with the boar bristle brush once it's dry, and end up with the lowest maintenance, shiniest hair I've had since I was 8 years old.

Bingeing a romantic comedy is always a good idea, and during this pandemic, these movies bring us one of the only elements of romance we can get.

While we love these movies for the beyond gorgeous male love interests, the female protagonists are still the ones we always remember. Although rom-coms are far from reality, it is always fun to imagine what our life would be like if a cinematic studio was behind our love life. So what does your favorite romantic comedies say about your dream guy?

Everything You Need To Know About Macronutrients, Because A Diet Should Be More Than Calories

Pay attention to what you're eating, not just how much you're eating.

Plenty of people are familiar with the "calories in, calories out" (CICO) method of dieting which can be used for losing, gaining, or maintaining weight. This method relies on calculating a person's total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) to ensure that they are not overeating or undereating to achieve their desired weight. TDEE considers a person's height, weight, age, gender, and level of activity to determine what their caloric intake should be — some calculators can factor in body fat percentage as well. When I used a TDEE calculator online, it said that my TDEE would be 1,990 calories if I was trying to maintain my weight, but are all calories created equal? I'd argue that they're not.

It might seem obvious to some of you that 1,990 calories of macaroni and cheese are not healthy at all compared to 1,990 calories of varied foods (fruit, veggies, meat, bread, etc.).
