thanks for watching everybody. Given current events, it felt weird to just sit here and make jokes about Disney Channel movies or whatever, so I wanted to do something a little more serious (but not too serious, I mean this is ME after all). I don't do video essays too often, so some of you may have never seen one of mine. On BGcd, most video essays are really just like fancy wikipedia articles or college thesis papers. But with mine I like to make them more personal, more about my experiences and opinions, rather than like "look at how many big words I can use". In this video, I use the words "quirky" and "manic pixie dream girl" somewhat interchangeably. This is technically not correct, but I wanted to focus more on my experience with these kinds of people, rather than a dissertation about the trope itself and how it manifests in different kinds of media over time or whatever. Like I mentioned in the video, I was REALLY into the idea of the MPDG back when I was in High School, so it was interesting for me to think back on why that was, and why I can't stand them now. And again, as I touched on in the video, these roles of "sad boy" and "MPDG" can easily be reversed. But, at least in movies and tv shows, the trope is overwhelmingly portrayed in the way I talk about in the video. The MPDG doesn't really exist in real life, but I have met more than a few girls (and guys too) who, either on purpose or by happenstance, are emulating one. I used to think dating these girls would be a dream come true. I was wrong. It was agony.

@Tracie Trosclair It's okay. Tbh, the YT comments section isn't the best place for a debate like this, lmao. And to share with you, I've never had an actual relationship myself (never made it past a first date). I'm practically a hermit over here as well. But I'm working to correct it. I'm starting by finishing a degree so I can get a real career and live independently. Once I do that, I feel it will definitely help in the self esteem department. Of course, that's only my external situation, but it's a big start. We can't give up on relationships, though, whether they be friendships or something deeper. With each attempt, we can learn and grow. If we stumble, or even ultimately fail a relationship, we must take time for introspection. Reflect on what it is we may have done wrong. Was I too impulsive? Was I not considerate of the other person's time, feelings, etc? Did I act immaturely? Did I miss certain things about this person that could have clued me in to what kind of person they really are, or did I ignore those signs? Was it all my fault, or maybe only partially my fault? Can I do or say things differently next time, or in the next relationship? Of course it's always hard to keep one's personal bias out of analyzing such situations. I have trouble doing it myself. I often wonder, if I ever saw that girl again, what would she say to me now? Would she yell at me or scold me for how immaturely I treated her after I felt "wronged"? Has she simply moved on and forgot about me? Has she forgiven me? Who knows. I know I'll never get the answers to those questions, so it's best for me to just remember what I learned from my experience and focus on the present.

@Ian Wulf I am not morally superior, and I definitely do not feel so. Perhaps I myself am still struggling with forgiveness and letting things go, in similar scenarios like yours; where I am on the same end as the woman of whom you are referring. I will admit that there is a lot of anger built up in me for all the years I have failed in the department of cultivating true friendships and vice-versa with those involved. It is highly possible and probable I am projecting all of my sorrows and experiences with others on to you... I'm guessing what happened when I read your first comment is that I felt the need to justify myself through the woman you were accusing; for similar personal accusations I've been accused of all my life😞 I tend to want true friendship so badly that I somehow f### it all up in the end ...... which is part of the reason I now live as a hermit and have so for the last ten years or so.... .... what else can I say but that I'm actually really sorry and feel like a major dick head now🤐🥴

@Ian Wulf You say you overreacted, while you act like she is a monster for betraying you because she let you talk her into having one meal with you.... However, You're right, I can be pretty dense in real life sometimes; but I think in this scenario I'm just seeing right through you. I can only observe what you lay out; and so far, any human would interpret as I have thus far.

The point is that love is reciprocal. You love someone despite their imperfections no matter what. You don't try to fix them and leave when they don't work out for you. Love is more than just chemical reactions - it's a commitment. If there's no sign of commitment, it's just a hobby.

So the Manic Pixie Dream Girl, who "gets to be" herself is an expendable tool used to ensure that sad boys can go on to have full lives as a better version of themselves. Dream Girl remains essentially just a dream, simultaneously static and ephemeral.

There is one component of this trope that is somewhat accurate or at least for me being a girl. We all know no one is ever happy all the time, there are those of us who are bright, cheerful, energetic, and love life. We follow almost all of our dreams and while we care what some people think they are few and far between. There are not many of us. Most people won't give up a job for their dream because you know you have to eat but there are those of us who will push the envelope as far as we can in order to achieve our dreams and find joy in everyday life.

"Manic pixie dream girl" Will either abuse or cheat on you. She is often what is considered "creepy" She, in RL, will watch you from a distance... and she won't approach and ask you out. Instead, she will hover around you and maybe bend over in front of you and dress brightly to get your attention. If you don't ask her out, she will tell HR that you offended her somehow. She thinks she is "so much fun" but in reality is just chasing dopamine hits and will often do drugs, act obnoxious, lack any and all discipline, and "live for the moment" so she will drop out of college. She will drop 300 dollars on rave tickets and she will do it without you if she has to. Every woman like this deliberately goes out of her way to follow an archetype of this woman. They, like Alex says, don't care how you feel. They just want to "play the part" of a unique person. In real life, many of the women like this simply follow their emotions... they are pretty much all the same. They all, these days, are obnoxious, drink too much, smoke pot often, love flowers/nature/animals or whatever else. The kind of man they like is a man who makes lots of money, dresses well, and isn't terribly outspoken. This is a good portrayal of these kinds of women. Many of them seem pleasant, but they are terrible. I attract a lot of these women because I'm tall, quiet, physically fit, and fairly handsome with blue eyes. They are just shallow, and severely overvalue themselves in a relationship. If you care about them, they will leave you. If you don't care about them, they will stalk you. All they know how to do is follow their emotional impulses. They are a nightmare to even work with or be around.

I think this video doesn't cover why those quirky girls are quirky. Mostly, this quirkiness is admirable to the guy up until it appears the girl is not interested in being in a long-term relationhsip with him. Why? No, not because "well, that's who i am, i am just this quirky haha". I think it portrays that being in a relationship puts a lot of pressure on women. They don't wanna conform and be good for the guy, they wanna stay "quirky" which essentially means - stay true to themselves. And love can feel like a cage.

But Holly Golightly is not like that at all. She's actually quite sad and anxious, if not depressed. She acts and does what she wants because she tries to run away from her sadness and not live a dull life . She knows she is sad and doesn't always try to hide it. She tells Paul Varjak about her mean reds the first time she meets him, but she hides it from everyone else in her life and mostly tries to hide it from herself as well. She has a backstory that gives reasons why she might be so sad, anxious and lost. She has pretty extreme mood swings, much like someone who is bipolar. She tries to be this free spirited girl and doesn't let herself appear vulnerable, but once someone looks a little closer they can see that it's mostly a front. She only chases a glamorous life because she believes it will make her sadness go away, but she could also be happy with a simple life if she only let herself (we saw that in the scenes of her and Paul around nyc ). She actually has a lot of depth to her that may not be visible to some viewers on the first watch.

The reason why this 'trope' is so popular is because most people aspire it. It's not so much focused on 'the girl gets a project boy' while 'the boy gets his wildflower girl,' but rather that a lot of people can readily relate to the sad, duller character, whether boy or girl. We are used to seeing that 'better life' thanks to the boom in social media, and it's easy to fall into the trap of thinking our lives seem plain in comparison to others. We all want that fun adventure, that thrilling connection-whatever it is that will free us from the things of life that cause us to feel boxed in, or simply drained of the colors of life. So, just like many others stated, the 'Manic Pixie Dream Girl' is an ideology; philosophy; a better version of you, and the presence most want to have. No one wants to be seen as the lifeless, dull character in a crowd, in some way we all want that uniqueness about us that lets us stand apart. Therefore, the 'quirky' girl is presented as the solution to this social dilemma, even though, consequently, the more that people try to achieve this unattainable notion of a human, the more they lose their natural quirks. And, in the end, you start looking more like everyone else because we've been presented with only one solution to a solution-caused problem.

Probably the first video on this channel that I didn't like. Pinning 'instability' as a character trait on a woman who is already made by men through the lens of men, and FOR other men, is just in bad taste. And trying to make an argument of 'well she's awful but she's unique and so she gets away with it' completely ignores who these movies are made for, and why. They're made for the audience to empathise with the male protagonist, who sees this female character through his own perspective, and has his own expectations regarding who she'll be. It's odd that rather than wondering about the psyche of a character so determined to bury his head in the sand in order to avoid looking at the woman he's with as a real person, you're wondering about what's wrong with the woman. I'll tell you what's wrong - it's the perspective. I may hate an ex of mine, because that may be a result of my perspective. But that doesnt mean that's how my ex really is, it's just my lens that you're seeing her through. Please understand the disadvantage of having so many male directors make the same two-dimensional female characters in their movies, over and over again for decades.

Ahhh no! Summer isn’t a manic pixie dream girl. Tom, yes, is the sad boy and thinks Summer will complete him. So in his eyes, he does. In until the expectation/ reality scene when Tom has to come to terms with the fact that Summer is her own person and not just created to bring excitement to his life. Manic Pixie Dream Girls have no character arc, backstory, or conflict. This is completely contrary to Summer as she has all three. At first glance she can be thrown into the MPDG troupe but she is in fact quite the opposite.

Nice way to completely overlook the fact that, in every single one of these examples, the protagonist always feels like he is owed affection for what he does and how he behaves. A concept that is a problem in general and explains what happens to the "sad boy" if there is no "Manic Pixie Dream Girl". Because sometimes they just become Incels and commit mass murder because they think they are owed something like this. Which is exactly the damn problem with many of these kinds of movies. The indication that women are there to fix the problems that some men have. That they are expected to fill that kind of role, suggesting to people that this is something real to look forward to and hope for. And out of those expectations? Well we have seen I'd say. But that's the point. It ain't anybodies responsibility to fix people and so it's also not anybodies responsibility to behave EXACTLY like you want them to behave. If the alternative to that cliché is that the girl is always just expected to essentially do the same thing but then just end up in a relationship with the "nice shy guy" because, well, they behaved like true gentlemen? Then I'd say that creates an even worse picture. Nobody is owed something like this. Nobody.

Well you could also argue that those movies represent boys as the ones whose characters do develop menawhile girls only help them doing so. It is still the perspective of the boy that is in focus, no matter if the main characters are girls or boys. So the message that the young female moviewatchers recieve is: do care mostely for the boy of your interest, he is the one that still has the opportunity to grow and you are the one that can help him with that. Not the things I want my possible future daughter to lean to.

500 days of summer is actually a criticism on this kind of trope and I don't think breakfast at tiffany's really fit in this situation, because manic pixie girls are there for the sole reason of being the love interest of the protagonist, they're quirky and empty, but both holly and summer (especially holly) have issues of their own...

have u ever thought WHY those quirky girls are acting the way they do ?! why they’re always happy and full of life? ...and have you ever thought WHY they choose to be with those sad boys? well it’s obvious that they weren’t happy before , because something bad (as always) happened in their past and they had to go through it ALONE ,because no one really understood them and no one even bothered to help them ,so they had to learn the hard way because HEY-sometimes thats how life works.When it’s time for them to move on from whatever happened to them ,they always try to see the positive side to everything and everyone, they want to help others and make them happy and they want to live without guilt for being who they became well- who they are. Now ,the reason why they choose to be with the sad boys is because they see a part of themselves in them...so they really want to help them and be there for them ,because they don’t want them to go through whatever they’re going through alone. Of course you can’t choose who your heart wants and it’s most likely for them to fall in love and when it’s time for the boy to open up his wings and be free just like the girl wanted him to do ,love always gets in the way and the girls don’t want them to be stack with them forever, they want them to live life to the fullest and make memories (also quirky girls often tend to have fear of attachment (this happens because of their past), so thats why they don’t want something more than that with the boys (and anyone in general ) and as human beings they’re not always perfect ,so their decisions sometimes might be stubborn ).

This trope is unfortunately permeated and lowkey ruined my life in high school. I have bipolar disorder and when I'm manic I actually do dress and act more like a manic pixie dream girl, and so the kinds of people who asked me out were normally entitled repressed nerds who ignored any of my "unpalatable" human person traits (while I was expected to welcome theirs). All while I desperately wished for an SO who was emotionally stable and had a nice personality and respected my boundaries and communicated with me and had like interests and stuff and oh my god the bar is on the ground

Usually when I see couples where a girl tries to "fix" a guy they: 1. Get dragged down by a real PoS guy, usually a criminal or abuser whom they think just needs fixing. 2. Throw a fit when the guy won't change his morals, personality, friends, beliefs or hobbies to fit her vision of him. 3. Pick out a total slob manchild who becomes their little pet in exchange for shirking any responsibility but maybe he starts washing his hands or something. 4. Take advantage of a guy in a real bad place who ends up debating leaving her because she makes him feel like trash but he's worried she's right and that he's lucky to have her "love" and will never get anyone else.

Honestly I hate the trope but I did find Star Girl to be a cute movie. She seemed almost otherworldly. Plus I really liked the part where she changed herself for him before discovering she's worth more than that. And along with that, she is not as perfect as she may seem, in trying to be kind she hurts others. (kinda Mary sueish for sure) but I don't see that a lot. She develops a lot over the movie unlike the main guy who just is less sad and gains confidence.

I'v never seen a boy that is really happy . I guess sometimes man just wait for woman who smiles and makes him do the same. Because they think its cute?

The idea of manic pixie girl really hurt me growing up. I thought I had to be the fun, happy, sunshine in a guy’s life, without any real problems that would make me “less ideal”. But it should be mutual and people shouldn’t be an “object of fancy”. I want to be loved for being myself, not for living up to someone’s fantasy.
