It's honestly sad that readers will praise the ml for doing the bare minimum of communicating and treating the fl with respect. I'm just reading the comments like "Pls have higher standards. This should not be praiseworthy." Readers are so used to the 'walking red flag who is angsty and brooding with daddy/mommy issues and uses the fl as a surrogate therapist' ml that they're hyping up what should be the standard. This is why we need more himbo ml's. Morosexuals rise up!
