You didn't, people just see fighting as "hot" and don't care about the implications of it in terms of abuse.

Also on the verge of emotional abuse. Also I was surprised when I was writing the scene of s3 how I didn't have to change things to make things look bad the writers did it

They wrote it as toxic themselves, so not surprising you wouldn't have to change things.

Ugh, their constant arguing was so far from romantic it's not funny! I just wanna FF those silly scenes, they just served to frustrate me. And the making out felt so forced to me. I know they were a couple IRL but I didn't feel it translated to the screen AT ALL.

Exactly. It's abusive behavior and so many women fall victim to that and I think a lot of that has to do with TV/Film romanticizing it.

It's actually pretty scary that people view it that way when it's actually very disturbing behaviour. The romanticising of it is damaging.

Yep, it's romanticised way too much. It should be called out.

I certainly think it is!

Jess pining after all these years is pretty pathetic. It’s like, hasn’t he had other experiences and relationships since Rory? She obviously moved on from him pretty quick, it’s sad that he hasn’t.
