There are things that people romanticize way too much. Some of these romanticized things are SUPER obvious (we’re looking at you Eiffel Tower!). However, other items may not be so obvious. On today’s video, we’re going to show you some of the most “romantic” items in the world…thanks to hopeless romantics everywhere. These are 25 things that people romanticize way too much.
Romeo and Juliet
It’s not a romance. It’s the story of two selfish and irresponsible kids.
Making video games
Playing video games might be fun, but making video games is a completely different ballpark. You have a manager, deadlines, it can be quite boring, and people will roast you if the game isn’t up to expectations.

Dreaming about living a life sans water/electricity can seem romantic and simple, but when you come from the third world the whole romance/simplicity thing just doesn’t make sense. Also, farming is much harder than whatever you’re doing right now.
They certainly weren’t very clean and they definitely weren’t prudes. The streets were full of excrement, children worked in mines, and most of the clothes contained toxic dyes. Not really a very romantic time to be alive.
It’s actually not that much fun.
