All Rom-coms need not have a happy ending. Some could even see the characters go through a difficult breakup and rediscover a new self. The idea is not just to see a couple falling in love and calling it forever. It could also mean, breaking the shackles of a controlling relationship and living a free life.
A fairy tale ending is not necessary every time. Here are 8 such hilarious rom-coms that singles can enjoy on Valentine ’s Day.
