Having been with quite a few and been friends with a few more, I think Manic Pixies are not for me. They’re utterly exhausting and after a long enough amount of time, seem less authentic then someone who is a little more genuine and human. Garden State is a great movie, but my life isn’t a dream, it’s a life. I want someone who will live it with me, not make me live it for them. Plus Manic Pixies rarely cover their half of the rent.
