I have a confession to make: I am not automatically repulsed by love triangles.
To be honest with you, I oftentimes welcome them with open arms! I see them as one of many ways to portray relationship conflicts and character dynamics, and I always look forward to how they will build meaningful connections to one another (without the cattiness and unnecessary drama of course) and how these bonds will grow with the plot. For me, love triangles are okay until they are not.
I have certain “red flags” when it comes to LTs. There are many, of course, but in this video, I talk about my top three “LT Fails” that make me want to throw a love triangle to a wall. And kick it for good measure.
They are the following:
1.) Wishy-washy heroine;
2.) LT overtaking the plot;
3.) Nice guy vs Asshole.
I discuss all three of in the video, complete with funny/silly re-enactments! Check it out!
How about you, do you like love triangles? If you do, when is a love triangle no longer okay for you? Let me know!
