    I was reading Upgrade Specialist in Another World.

    And there was a part in the story where the MC was lead on, by a girl in the story. He initially started having feelings for this girl, and he gave her a gift. But after finding his gift on another individual, he realized how foolish he was and, wrote her off like a thot.

    So like the next time he confronted her, he treated her like air kind of thing.

    So I was wondering if there was a similar situation in other novels out there. Where MC's find a potential love interest and then they get tricked for some reason. Like the girl/guy just wants something from them or is trying to get closer to MC just because of orders.

    Anybody read similar stuff? Titles? Any suggested readings?

    Which chapter was that? Are you talking about the girl he falls for at the beginning of the novel?

    Edit: Also I took a long break from it and haven’t picked it back up, how has the romance progressed?

    Yup that one. I know I generalized the couple of chapters into a paragraph. But I'm kinda looking for any decent reads with this kind of subplot.

    Edit: Well Bai Yunfei, is pretty much Head over Heels for the current girl in his sect. I believe he does something outrageous, to save her. (Can't recall the actual chapter though)

    Edit 2: Well I found the Arc with Bai Yunfei's naivety. Vol 1 Chapters 55-73. Pretty much the buildup of their "chance meetings" and chapter 73 when he confronts Liu Meng and crushes his feelings for her.

    The Desolate Era is kinda similar, but she does end up truly falling in love and she does end up marrying him.

    You're right, this situation was also in the beginning too. I remember now.

    Any top picks that you want to add?

    Haven't read those yet, I'll take a gander at them thank you.

    3 types generally :

    1. Backstory. It's mentioned as one of the reasons for the MC's personality as we are introduced to the MC and they might or might not meet the woman again, which case if they do, they're further subdivided into 1) wants back with the MC after seeing how awesome he's become or how bad whoever she chose instead was or 2) hates the MC even more for 'not telling them' about whatever they did to become more more awesome and generally tries to cause trouble. This whole group includes the ones who dump the MC within the first few chapters, as those decisions don't tend to be spur of the moment. CN tends to have most of this type I would say. MW & IGE being examples.
    2. Influence / Golddigger / Survival . These types either use the MC to get something, be it riches or connections, getting closer to someone else they like or just to survive something by using the MC as a fighter / meatshield. Once they find someone better in their mind, the appropriate opportunity and assurance that they'll become that new man's woman, they tend to fulfill their dreams and leave him as soon as possible. Some of them do later try and get back with the MC, who usually skyrockets past whichever strength status they were at. Tate no Yuusha's Bitch fits both this and group 1, but more this I would say, given that they had no actual history before the novel starts. Maybe more CN, KR are more loyal and JP once rescued stay loyal.
    3. 'Unluckies' This is the type who the MC believes they actually have a chance with, but are too slow to actually progress, and the women either friendzone or humor them until family obligations compel them , they're seduced by someone with better positions, they just find someone they liked more in the romantic way or after some time without meeting the MC has happily found someone who they either deem they don't deserve (they did something bad before) or they find someone who has nothing at all to do with the MC, so they're not reminded of him all the time. Coiling Dragon's 'first love' and Teacher Dana from Castle of Black Iron are examples of. Could be both CN, KR or JP depending on the novels.

    Hahaha, I don't classify that as seducing, it was just flirting. The MC was just being dense.
    It is called testing the waters before you find out that the dude is some poor low born loser haha

    TDG - he loves her for what happened in previous life, but she has absolutely no redeeming qualities in the new life.
