This is the first blog post in my new blog series ‘confession time’. In this series, I will talk about things you didn’t know about me. In this way, you can get to know me even better and maybe the things I write will make you laugh too. Or maybe they are relatable.
I am addicted to Hallmark movies
Have you ever seen a Hallmark movie? A few years ago I thought Hallmark was only making birthday cards and then I found out about Hallmark Channel. Unfortunately, Hallmark channel doesn’t exist anymore here in the Netherlands. But if you go on Youtube, you will find a lot of Hallmark movies. And every now and then you can watch a Hallmark Movie on our Dutch movie channels. And you can even find them on Netflix too.
I have absolutely no idea why I am addicted to Hallmark movies because the movies are very predictable and cheesy. The plot is always the same. Girl goes back to her old town, she meets a new guy or her old flame from years ago, they fight a little bit and then they fall in love. It is always like that. Quality isn’t always the best. You can easily find a few mistakes in every single movie. But I still love them. I think everyone has a guilty pleasure and I think this is my guilty pleasure.
I love that they make movies for every season. They make movies for spring, Easter, summer and Christmas. Which also puts me in the perfect mood. Especially around Christmas, I am craving a cheesy Christmas Hallmark movie.
I guess I am a hopelessly romantic person. I love the moment when they realize they are falling for each other. But I have to admit, watching Hallmark movies is making me a hopeless romantic person in real love life too. I think I might have an unrealistic idea of how my love life should be. But a woman (or man) can believe in miracles, right? You never know what will happen.
