If you’re like my family who says things like “sorry, you’re in a conservatorship” … probably thinking you’re different so they can fuck with you !!!!

–Nina Dobrev is catfished in the new Netflix movie Love Hard, and I’ll pretty much watch any romcom, but this trailer makes me worried that she’ll end up falling for her catfisher instead of the hottie from Never Have I Ever. Let’s all just rewatch Netflix’s excellent romcom The Half of It instead and call it a day.
