seeking advice for romantic comedy characters

This was the headline for a post in a LinkedIn screenwriting group.

My advice for romantic comedy characters would be as follows:

If female:
- Stop dating that jerk that you know is bad for you, and focus instead on that guy whom you know is really sweet but you've never legitimately considered as a relationship interest.

If male:
- Recognize that your existing job, while seemingly comfortable, is actually extremely dissatisfying in the context of your true ambitions and life goals. Take more proactive role in realizing your dreams and accomplishing those goals.

Also, move the alarm clock to a more convenient position so that you don't have to blindly reach for it with one arm from under the bed covers.
