Editing Rant: Why do they love them?

Why would ANYONE love this person?

Let alone three different love interests?

The main POV runs over everyone. Plays the love interests against each other. Ignores what they are saying and does STUPID MC decisions just to contradict the advice of the love interests.

I get it. Really I do. Strong independent person.

But this isn’t that – this is toxic, manipulative, and unhealthy. If the love interests didn’t start of emotionally damaged, longing for this level of sadism, there is no way they would have lasted past their first encounter with their “true” love.

(Note that any gender may be applied to the romantic element – this editing rant is for an urban fantasy, but I have raised reacted this way for every genre in existence.)
