Why do women like soap operas?

So I came home today from college to have lunch with my mom and she watched back to back to back soap operas. What gives? Is it because there is a lack of drama in her life and she needs these shows to fulfill that? THEY ALL HAD THE SAME THEMES. Someone cheated, someone was in jail, girls were crying, dudes fought each other and they are all rich. Is it because all you women wish your lives were like this? From now on I am going to spend my entire days creating un-necessary problems for myself, my family and my friends. All of this while looking for illegitimate lost siblings of mine

  • Still laughing over your question! And since I am old enough to be your mother...NOT ALL WOMEN LIKE SOAP OPERAS. TYVM :) I hate them and have never watched one all the way through. On the other hand, I do prefer that drama like that stay in a fantasy form and out of my real life. Maybe that is the attraction? No idea. :D

  • LOL ahahah can't tell you why some love them, I don't all the time but when you have nothing to do, they are good entertainment. depends on why you watch them. I watch them because theyre ridiculous and quite amusing. some girls watch them because they always have some sappy happy ending

    • Or they can just give me a happy ending instead?

    • its just easier to watch other people I guess lol

  • I don't watch them anymore, used to, and the reasons were for the drama, excitement and unpredictability. Like reading a good romance novel.

    • It's funny the differences of men and women. Give me a chair with recliner, a 12 pack and some food I shouldn't eat and I can watch sports all day.

  • Lol I don't watch soap operas. I think they are quite boring, the plot of them is always moronic, and they offer nothing.

  • I hate soap operas.
