I am so sick of the asshole men on wattpad!
Are wattpad writers not capable of writing male love interests who aren’t complete assholes?
I find a story that has an intriguing description and plot premise. The main character seems interesting, or at the very least, is likable. And the story seems really promising…
…but THEN cue in the main love interest guy who is as hot as Hades and who is a complete jerk who belittles, mocks and acts like a douchebag to the main heroine. And the way the story is set up, you know that although she might hate him now, she will end up falling head over heels for him later.
I know that all characters need to have flaws…but if your character acts like an ass or does something so wrong that it’s irredeemable then I’m not going to like your character. I’m not going to root for them. And I will hate every second of the main heroine’s relationship with him.
exhale Okay, I feel better. I’m sorry if you have characters like this in your story, but I’m just so sick of seeing this trope played over and over and over again. I’d really like there for once to be a story on Wattpad where they have a male love interest who is a lovable average guy. Maybe he isn’t Prince Charming and he isn’t Captain America, but he’s a guy with flaws who has a good heart. Not a jerk who the main character loves deeply even though he never did anything to earn her affections with the way he treats her.
Okay, rant over.
