So, like the title, what are your opinions on love triangles? I'm honestly curious because I've seen a lot of people say that they hate them, and a few that said that they like them. Will you stop reading a story if you find that there's a love triangle in it? What parts of a love triangle makes you hate it so much? Is it because they're cliche and overused? Your least favorite scenarios w/ love triangles? Just tell me anything about them, haha.
I personally like them if they're executed nicely, but that's pretty rare.
(but you know, it'll also be nice if for all the female OC's out there who have a guy as a close friend to have a purely platonic relationship, and the guy friend doesn't fall in love with her... because honestly, the best-friend-turned-lover-but-you-don't-choose-the-best-friend-because-of-the-mysterious-new-hot-guy-that-you-just-met-has-a-better-relationship-than-a-best-friend-you've-had-for-years-since-heck-he's-your-friend-and-you-only-see-him-as-a-friend kind of love triangles are the worst triangles, in my opinion.)
And then again, building onto the base question, what are your opinions on squares and pentagons and hexagons and (maybe?) octogons? Like, more the merrier? I don't get those very much when there's just too many love interests.
Friendly discussion please. :)
