Why is the unattainable so irresistible?
So, I decided to get back into writing and pen my not - so sordid stories down, who to be the best audience than anonymous online readers who will never know the face behind this blog. ....or so I hope they don't. Today's topic...what's is the secret of success behind the Twilight Saga or 50 Shades of Grey? Or what is the common theme running between the two? A vulnerable and lost woman climbing the heights of desperation to gain validation from an unobtainable man. Sure, one is a vampire and the other an emotionless man who just loves breaking all safety measures during sex. But what is it about putting women in a weaker spot so fantasise-able? Is it the love story that we hope will survive through the end of times against all odds or the sweet victory of winning the man not everyone thought would be husband material now forever yours.
