The Hopeless Shipper

The problem with being a shipper is that suddenly a perfectly entertaining show becomes about the relationship that could be. Every little secret glance, every shared look, a simple brush of a hand. It's torture. Even worse, it's self-inflicted torture.

And the people running the shows know it. They know that hopeless romantics like me will salivate all over shows that are dripping with the classic "Will they or Won't they?" story line. And I fall for it EVERY time! Gah!

And now that I'm done with school and just working, I have a lot of time to kill. Which means that I have time to sit on my butt and watch TV. (And believe me, I do.) Which, in turn, means that I have a lot of time to get invested in these fictional relationships.

Sometimes it's exhausting. Sometimes it means that people judge me because I'm too invested. And sometimes it means that I watch a show just for the relationship.

I'm hopeless.

Until Next Time,

The Hopeless Romantic Shipper

  1. And sometimes we read way too much into old episodes when the writers hadn't even decided to set two people on the road to a relationship...
