Love shown in movies and shows is too in-ur-face and never happens dat way though in reality,but still one thing I maintain here is dat wat they show in TV n movies is in sum way or d other a mirror of true jst gives an exaggerated image,but in our imagination its always more of less d same Embarrassed or maybe I m jst a hopeless romantic LOL

Look at our daily soaps.

Most storylines are based on a innocent, loving girl who does aarti every morning & some RICH, handsome guy falls in love with her. It doesn't matter if the guy was arrogrant before, or does not believe in love but the moment he sees the girl, he hears wedding bells... Stern Smile
and then even if before he was obessed with his work, he forgets all of that and goes and sings songs to his lover LOL
haha don't we wish that was true.
but it oviously is not.
and movies do get realistic in some parts but not usually.
I guess it really depends on the person you are. I mean sadly, i still hope and think someone "perfect" will come for me, overlooking all my imperfections. I know it wont happen, but a girl can dream, na?
But not all movies are bad, infact bollywood movies may have given us high  expectations but sometimes those movies make us realize how much we love someone. When you try to relate to a character, you think of all your similarities first. Sometimes taht character can awaken feelings in you that you did not have before.
Personal experience.
My two older friends are happlily married but they disliked eachother very much when they were younger. The guy had slowly started to like the girl, but the girl just hated him so much, oviously hiding her true feelings. But all it took was some SRK magic in Kal ho na ho, seeing that preity was about to lose her true love so realized she didn't want to miss out her chance on something that could be her match. - and those are exact words of my friend LOL
so I guess we can bash movies and thank them.

I believe that movies and books give us expectations...and sets a standard for them. It like raises the bar....  but thats not good. because the guy meant for you may not be perfect and you shouldn't let them go just because they dont match up to srk or john lol...thats ridiculous. You would want someone unique in their own way. not a copy of some actor

Movies/shows do make us imagine things that simply aren't there, to be honest i have never been one of those people who believed in love and watching these soppy movies/shows where *the girl is falling the guy catches her, they stare, long moments etc etc* well that all has changed my opinion more about how love simply isn't like that, and personally for me it doesnt really exist, its a myth for me!

we're confused by that fact - yes
because when they film these Mr.Perfect
they chose the cutest guy which all the girls will die for
he will have a understanding ,love everything
yes now i do think diffrently cuz first it wasn't like that
i guess even the boys have started to imagine those stuff in gitls
that they should be cute and all hat but gthen it varies form person to person i still think that it has completly chanhed my outlook of the fact of love
