Coming to terms with my non-identity as a Manic Pixie Dream Girl

The term “Manic Pixie Dream Girl” is defined by Urban Dictionary as, “A term coined by film critic Nathan Rabin after seeing Elizabethtown. It refers to ‘that bubbly, shallow cinematic creature that exists solely in the fevered imaginations of sensitive writer-directors to teach broodingly soulful young men to embrace life and its infinite mysteries and adventures.’ A pretty, outgoing, whacky female romantic lead whose sole purpose is to help broody male characters lighten up and enjoy their lives.” 1,165 more words

Book Review

Manic Pixie Nightmare [Girl]

I’m trying to become less involved with myself.  Not to be distant, or come of despondent, or seem irritatingly melancholy.  Not to show compassion for others and selflessness and “unattachment to the physical world”.   787 more words
