Rules:

  • Please PINGBACK to Kate @ Melting Pots and Other Calamities.
  • You can choose ten romance fails from ANY media you like: books, movies, anime, manga, T.V shows, or Webtoons. You can even mix them up if you want.
  • You can choose funny fails or serious ones; for the serious ones, phrase it humorously. Remember, this is a fun tag! It’s not meant to be serious.
  • Mention who’s who in the fails. (I.E, who fails and who is the recipient of the failure). If there isn’t  recipient, per se, just state the couple (or non-couple).
  • Optional: Rank the failures from least extreme to most extreme.
  • 5 failures at LEAST.
  • Tag as many people as you want, but at least one person.

These fails are less about the biggest fails in fiction and more about the first ones I thought of – but they are fails.


5 Romance Fails in Books

Blue/Adam
(The Raven Boys)

blue_and_adam_by_hettemaudit-d98ah2r

I LOVE The Raven Cycle books, a lot. Adam and Blue are a relationship set up to fail from the beginning, but it doesn’t make it less of a fail.

Cammie/Josh
(I’d Tell You I Loved You But Then I’d Have To Kill You)

852470

Book Review: I’d Tell You I Love You, But Then I’d Have to Kill You

Cammie spends the whole book sneaking around and breaking rules and lying to data Josh, only for him to be completely irrelevant by the next book because he can’t handle the weirdness and has his memory wiped. Definitely a romance fail.

America/Aspen
(The Selection)

There is no plot aside from the love triangle, but its an obnoxious one. America obviously loves Maxon, but can’t get over Aspen when he’s always there, despite having been the one to break up with her. Three books of being annoying for me reason. Ugh.

Vivi/Jonah
(When We Collided)

Review: When We Collided

One of the few YA books I’ve ever read where a couple didn’t need to be together forever in the end. Its okay for a first love not to be a forever love. I love their relationship, and in the end they fail as a couple but its supposed to be that way. I love this book.

Romeo/Juliet
(Romeo & Juliet)

I don’t think a romance fails list can exist without them. Its literally the biggest romance fail ever – they died, stupidly.


5 Romance Fails in TV

Rachel/Joey
(Friends)

I HATED this ENTIRE plot line.

Barry/Linda
(The Flash)

flash-season-1-episode-13-linda-barry

This was always set up to crash and burn.

Nate/Serena
(Gossip Girl)

Nate is probably the most good-hearted character. I love him. He and Serena are a mess as a couple, but great as friends.

Betty/Jughead
(Riverdale)

6897a48c9aff170a266c02dec4d7a8caef5a7d72_facebook

They’re cute enough in the show, but Jughead IS SUPPOSED TO BE ASEXUAL AND I HATE THE ERASURE.

Katherine/Damon
(The Vampire Diaries)

Series Code: VD112c

They are such a mess. Poor Damon.
