We’ve all had our hearts broken. It’s part of the risk we take when we get into a relationship. The problem is that many of us make decisions based on those heartbreaks that get in the way of us creating the type of relationship we desire.

I’ll admit that I’m a reality TV junkie. I watch everything from The Bachelor to Hoarders to every single one of the Real Housewives franchises. But my other guilty pleasure is black and white movies. I love the old-school glamour. And those men are men! No metrosexual ridiculousness going on with them. They knew what they wanted, and they went for it. And of course, I love the love in those movies. There was real romance back then. Black and white movies have real lessons to teach about love. Here are three of my favorite.
