Well, I know it is, I mean... of course. ^^;;; Perhaps it seems more obvious to compare it to Western romance stuff than shoujo/yaoi... it's just that I haven't read romance novels in ages so it's not been on my mind. ^^; Besides, the surprise factor was that it was supposedly a different genre... which usually doesn't have quite the same rules. But it's only a little weird, all things considered. Hm. Doesn't bother me near so much in manga, dunno why. Maybe there's more of a remove there, esp. with yaoi? And it's in Japan? heh.

Well, I'm not sure this guy -is- unrealistic... I didn't say he wasn't, just that I wonder if he was... I mean, the Enneagram 8s (http://www.eclecticenergies.com/enneagram/type8.php) do fit the profile :> I even think it's possible to have a normal/healthy relationship with them, in theory. That book sounds interesting, btw, especially the comparison essay! :> ...you may have recced it to me before, too :D
