I think most of you are just desperate/lonely and love bad or cheesy writing.
No one that has ever read a good novel would find this good.

Outside the world of D&D and similar games there is a huge increase in popularity of relationship and storytelling RPGs. The popularity of such games strongly suggests that people enjoy playing out social interactions and potential romances in their RPGs. CRPGs which have included 'romance' and relationship options for their PCs have won acclaim, and the relationship mechanics have been singled out by many people as being both fun and a major part of their enjoyment.
Your experience might vary from other people's but there is no need to go on the attack.
