Many say that reading romance sometimes is the saviour of romantic dreams. But the imaginary man that features in these dreams is not just filthy rich - he is caring (might not seem nice in the beginning though, but finally it is revealed he is caring), considerate, possessive (only enough to make the woman feel too special), and sexy and loving etc etc. So what do you think? Does this list makes dating difficult? Do unrealistic expectations have a significant role in demise or not a high fly of many relationships?

True, no one is perfect, and I'm surprised I didn't get a completely different answer to this question - the imperfect stories/situation/mistakes can also make you feel better/think better of your partner :)
The dream guy isn't perfect - in fact sometimes he is so pathetic, it really becomes annoying to see the heroine bearing with him. Problem is some people would just see one side of the equation - just the green patch of the grass in the whole lot
But Edward Cullen wasn't a man :D and I don't know if he was perfect... but yes you're right, some people tend to make unrealistic comparisons - that too just with the good things of fictional characters - ignoring their imperfections
True, neither characters are really perfect, they're just the first two that come to mind when I think of women going crazy over a fictional character. I've read so many "looking for Christian Grey" comments it's nauseating.
