Conversely, Klostermanblames actors and musicians like Coldplay and Lloyd Dobler. Coldplaydid a song on how it feels being in love. It gives an illusion of howone is supposed to feel when in love.

Finally, he blames everyone for making art and lifeinterchangeable. Besides, he media is not to be blamed. .(Klosterman,2004)

Klostermanargues that we can’t be satisfied by other people in a relationshipsince we base our judgment on them against movie standards. Suchstandards are difficult and impossible hence dissatisfaction anddisappointment. Never the less, we mess up everything when we let artbecome the ideal that we turn to. As a result, people becomefrustrated and disappointed in love. He claims that viewers fell inlove with the role played by different characters and not the realpeople who did the acting. Many people believe in a fantasy love andnot true love. (Klosterman,2004)
