I can’t recall the amount of times I have seen this generic dialogue… it’s so touching when you’re not the only one :pleading_face:

I so agree which is why in my story the LI and MC already like each other but it was what they assumed were just a lil crush they would grow out of and the they thought the MC’s older sis wouldn’t approve so they never acted on those feelings. I don’t understand how they can just never notice each other then suddenly they have just idk been put under a spell or sum like what?

I also hate, in romance stories, the the LI is a complete jerk.
I get that they could have a cold exterior, but being a bully then being idolized for that is not right!

I hate when in romance stories the MC is a home wrecker like the LI already has a gf and then leaves her for the MC because their “in love” like what

Yes!
My MC and her first LI are bestfriends for 10+ years. Then my MC walks past the second LI and doesn’t even notice him.
She’s at work.
It’s unrealistic that she’d stop what she’s doing to check him out. :rofl:

PERIOD!
Like he bullied the MC because the MC was “fat” in High School but when the MC loses weight, all of a sudden he’s Mr. Perfect, THEN the mc gets with him.

I’ve said this before, but I truly hate it so I’ll say it again.
When the author just puts customization in the first episode. Sometimes they put like 3 templates and say it’s too many lines, and I get so annoyed! Like no, it’s not! I have 3 cc templates in my 1st episode, and it’s not too many lines! Or they make me customize my LI’s mom’s, sisters, husbands, best friends, family who isn’t even important to the story! People assume I will immediatley read the second one even though I’m not hooked on the first one at.all. It makes me take that story out of my favorites and go find another one, because I’m not going to spend another pass when I have no idea if the stories for me or not. It also just makes you think the other episodes will be like this and I don’t want to read that. It’s not going to hurt to have one less chapter so you can put some scenes in the first one, because even if you don’t have a perfect 50, you’re going to get a lot more reads.

IK! And it’s choose your own path, but because I don’t have gems my MC is stuck as the girl who makes stupid choices.

I hate a story when it’s like episode 4 and the mc and love Interest are already dating. It’s just not realistic I get it you don’t want your story to take long but bring in love so fast makes me want to click off the story. I like when a story builds up the romance so when they date it’s a surprise and not so quick.

One of mine is when speech bubbles are not directed properly, as in: they are pointed at one character when another is speaking.

I am a picky reader as well😅

  1. When the author excessively cuts to one person to another as “comedy” One scene with this is fine, however when they cut back and fourth for a whole ten seconds and then do it AGAIN I do get peeved.

  2. The Mc or Li falling too fast for each other :roll_eyes: The only acceptable scenario I can think of is if they were best friends. But I’m thinking of the two characters being strangers and then falling for each other.

  3. This is small because it usually doesn’t happen, but when there are like 3 options for clothing and all of them are ugly😥

Last one lol

POOR LAYERING SKILLS :hot_face::hot_face: that one really gets me
