Is the media ruining our chances of happiness?

Do celebrities have more

luck when it comes to dating?

Every day we see many tv shows, newspapers and magazines that present us with images of happy, beautiful couples.

We love to read bout the latest showbiz couples and find out which celebrities are dating each other.  Even if you don’t buy these magazines, you can bet that many people you know do.

The trouble is that this gives a very twisted version of reality.  These airbrushed images can either ruin our own body image or make us think we should all be dating supermodels.  We begin to reject perfectly lovely matches with the false hope that George Clooney or Aishwarya Rai will magically become interested in us.  This can completely ruin any chance of meeting a “real” person.

Celebrities don’t have it any easier than us.  Yes, they might be have the money but they’ve lost their anonymity. Every time they walk out their front door to go on a date, the cameras are there watching them.  Can you imagine how hard it is to get to know someone they might be like?

So my advice to you is to remember to be realistic and don’t always believe everything you see.   Stop thinking about the impossible and focus on taking the opportunities that could lead to you meeting someone more accessible.

Good luck!
