Ambiguous Relationship


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

He is handsome, arrogant and is of the elite class. Being straightforward and brave, she shamelessly pursued him, sending him gifts, flowers and tried to get close to him.

She avoided him but no matter how much she tried, they frequently cross paths.

Suddenly one day he told her. “I want to be your boyfriend.”

What a mess! ! !

Liked the conversations, between ML and MC.

... more>>

The MC 8/10 was nice for her trying to keep her dignity most of the times, and being a hard worker.

The ML was meh, honestly I wouldn't recommend such a bully, arrogant, petty guy in a relationship, but he is 5/10 barely acceptable

I dropped it at the bed scene, I mean seriously, you engage in that kind of activity while not being married, KO, dude for me this is KO, thought it would last as a serious relationship, but honestly, the story would be fully a timewaster without the conversations about life. (C74)

I recommend if you want a ML bullying the MC with words, actions or jokes with his sad*st hobby, and some conversations related to life.... P.S Haven't heard him saying I love you till this chapter 8.8

The end.

The author (and the translator) did an amazing job. I really loved how the story never gets boring even though it's just a romance book (though I love romance in books I tend to get bored when there's no actual storyline) and the main characters have actual character development. The MC is simply awesome, especially how much stronger she gets later on, and I love how her brain works and the comments she makes. She's so much fun to read about, if the book only focused on her I would... more>> have loved to have many more chapters.

Unfortunately, I just couldn't warm up to the ML. Don't get me wrong, he was written very well by the author, his character is consistent and makes a bit of progress as well in the course of the story, but he's just not my kind of male lead.

He is poison-tongued, arrogant, selfish and one of the most unromantic male leads ever. He does a couple nice things here and there, but he never really puts himself out there, if you know what I mean. He's always in control of the relationship (except for one short instance) while the MC often and easily gets hurt by him, his words and his actions, and then he's too prideful to make it up to her. He also never pursued her - something which I really wanted to see because, after all, she got previously rejected by him. Another point that really annoyed me was how many times it was stressed how much the ML used to love his ex while he never told MC whether he loved her (except for in the epilogue which doesn't count in my book). He was obviously amused and entertained by her and flattered because of her enduring love for him, but I never really felt that he actually loved or treasured her as a special person in his life.


So yeah, the novel is entertaining - though I was glad it wasn't longer. I loved loved the MC, but personally, I was unsatisfied with the ML. <<less

"You made yourself feel embarrassed."

For me, this is the most memorable quote from this novel. Anyways, there are a lot of amazing dialogues in here. Their banters, oh gawd! I so loved them!!!

It's been a while since I've binge-read a novel. There are no boring moments! It's a mixed of comedy and romance. While reading this, most of the time, I found myself smiling or just LOL-ing unconsciously and feeling warm inside. It's a shame that I've dungeon-ed this on my reading list for a very long time cause this... more>> one is a GEM. But still, it's better late than never noh? ;) For me, the characters are very relatable and of course, I so love the couple! &Lt;3 This one is a very much recommended. Go read this guys! And thank you for the translator ah. Arigatou. Kisses. <<less

In the beginning, I was seriously stressed out because of FL's personality, but I guess, that is why her character development was also satisfying.

If you are planning to read this, but felt like FL is very very frustrating, hold on until Chapter 40, it gets better afterwards, slowly.

I decided to rate this high because so far, this is the least cheesy CNovel I've read. It really is, a slice of life. ML was not romantic but he's dependable, and real. He was overbearing, he was moody, even petty. Both... more>> Leads have shortcomings of their own and their love story was not as sweet as other love stories, but it has the touch of most of everyone's reality.

There are no super villains, or super twists. The problems they faced are mostly their own inhibitions, their own insecurities, and it's really fresh for me.


Plus their first night together was really well written, I was pleasantly surprised!!!

It was very hot. Even that scene was realistically written, I can't help but blush, tbh.



The family problem was seriously so relatable!!! Westerners might not realize this, but most Asian families are really, really a huge part to consider in marriage. It's not just marriage between two people, for us Asians, but marriage of two families, so social status is indeed something to consider. FLs insecurities about her family was something I can super relate as Asian.

And also her strive for independence is something I can relate!

This is a jewel, it is a romcom novel with light plot. I love how MC is not portray as uber beautiful or uber smartsmart yet she is sass in her own way.

And I love how the character progressed. Especially how blunt ML was hahahaha. They complete each other.

Trully recomended

It's an ok and cute story. Personally I really like the beginning part the they were flirting more than the second part after they became a couple. You could literally taste the vinegar Meng Gu was forced to down which was great. Chen Rou Yu was just adorable with her verbal vomit. Lol I can relate to her "Elder Parental Phobia." XD

Also props to the Translator they did a great job.

If this novel is ever published in my country, I will gladly purchase it. Even now I have already read it thrice.

The story has no dull moments and is very well writen. Just like other reviewers note, the battle of wits between MC and ML is very funny. However, what draws me the most is the way the novel explores character's personalities, thoughts, and emotions. Every happening in MC and ML's life is built with connectivity that I came to understand who they are, what have they gone through, and... more>> why did they do certain actions. The way they fall in bitter terms with each other, get into arguments, make up, then fall in love, makes sense. I can see why their relationship works, unlike the previous ones, and how it brings development to their characters too.

In short, I am very satisfied reading this. My only complain is, I want to have longer chapter from ML pov. If I have to nitpick, then I wish the parent issues to be concluded in clearer way, especially the relationship between father and daughter in law. But then again, even in real life, such kind of problems may go on for a lifetime. So I think what the story has now is enough as it is. <<less

I am reading this on Webnovel and only 25 chapters have been released so far. I like the characters. They seem real in their struggles and reactions. The FL has to deal with a lot of issues that accompany someone who moves to a different city to work. She is expected to be a filial daughter, work in a particular industry, get promoted to a manager and find a decent husband. She tries to hide certain truths and escape from some issues but stands up for herself whenever she can.... more>> Not much has been revealed of the ML so I reserve my comments for now. Hoping to read more chapters soon. <<less

I love the story from beginning to end.

  • I love their interaction, its funny, relatable, and cute.
  • I also love the ups and down of their relationship. How the girl keeps denying her feelings for the guy after being rejected. But when the guy realizes his feeling for the girl, the girl didn't immediately reject or accepts the guy.
  • I love the black belliness of the ML and the elder phobia of the girl.
Overall, it's worth the read :D

I really tried to understand this novel but all I got is "poisonous tongued ML" and "timid MC".

The first half I skimmed through the chapter- trying to quickly get through chapter 40 to see this character development- because honestly, the vibe I get from this couple is a toxic one. MC may be shameless, and well, s*upid, but ... more>>

ML is even worse, what poisoned tongued ML, just say he's a bit*h and go. He shames MC and I dont really think that its necessary to shame her??


And while there really is a character development, ML barely got one. I just, cannot for the life of me, warm up to this kind of ML. MC is okay, she's trying her best. But ML is

really ordering her around, and MC is 'scared' of him. Like, ok lol. The way he eats vinegar is🤢 like I get the fact that he's 'black-bellied' but his tone is really bad, he's always angry.


His POV is particularly hard to read.

Throughout the whole novel except the epilogue, there was not even one mention that he loves her. Someone above also said this. He likes her because she likes him. 'Like' is too strong of a word, he's interested, curious, it was as if she was some kind of rare animal in a zoo, and his curiosity made him act v bad towards her, he bullies her, shame her. He acts in a condescending manner like he wants to be above her. And I find that very bad.


Ok, so while my review is full of negativity, this is what I think of the novel. Obviously there are also some sweet parts, so. 🤷‍♀️ <<less

This is one of the few novels that I always come back to read, the character development is one of the best I've come across in the modern romance, the characters are realistic, the relationship is realistic, no unnecessary angst... the female lead's growth through the story is amazing.

... more>>

She starts off in a bubble of sorts where she sort of absorbed in her own world, the bubble burst (pretty quickly) and she goes through one of those periods in life where it feels the world is against you and it just seemed like your life is spiraling downwards... she grows exponentially after this and matures a lot, all the while building an interesting friendship with the male lead (Who she pursued and was rejected by at the beginning) which eventually builds into a romance...


The leads are witty, funny, practical and their conversations are just so interesting and hilarious... that I keep coming back. Please Read!!

P.S: I might be a bit biased considering I translated it BUT I just LOVED it that much LOL!😍😍😍 <<less

This is such a great book. It’s a comedic romance. I was about to be deterred by a negative review but I am glad I finished it. The story is realistic and emotional. It’s a true love story, depicting how to work hard at compromising and keeping your love because that is how it is in real life. I literally laughed out loud at every chapter. Great translation as well!

I enjoyed this story. Simple, direct, not so much angst, and the comedy actually had me LOL-ed literally. I wished it was longer, more into their married life? I went back and re-read some parts bc it was funny for a second laugh. The FL isn't weak, she is novel in her thinking, trying to be strong in her own ways. After many rejections, she doesn't give up on life but look at alternatives.

... more>>

I liked that the heroine had a backbone. After she was rejected and ML turned around and chased her, she asked him the qualifications for him to like her. Ingenious bc he had rejected her a few times, embarrassingly. I wished there was another POV from the ML when he knew he fell in love with her

Actually, I was more into

Meng Gu and Sisi. I felt the chemistry even if they only interacted once or twice in the entire book. HAHAHAHAHAHA!!

It was an alright read for me and there were times that I was really tired of the verbal pingpong of the main characters....

Before I read the novel, I first looked at the review of other readers and it gave me dilemma. To read or not to read. But against my curiosity, I read it.

It was a fun read. The banter between the two protagonists are enjoyable. I laughed many times and I laughed too much.

And somehow, I understood why people hated the ML.

... more>>

He was too straightforward and arrogant that you will wonder if he really did love the FL. He is the type that will bully the person he likes. And that kind of guy will make you insecure.


And as for the FL, she deserve to be called as a strong female lead. She is indeed not a push over, sensible and strong. She only acts as a person who is inlove.


and I must say, he did say he loves her

  1. Actually, I already finish this novel about a long time ago.
  2. I really love CRY characteristics, she basically "living person" who been out there in the real world, like totally can relate to me.
  3. The insecurity that she feels, the problems between the family, totally can relate it.
  4. And the intersection between ML rather unique and ambiguous, not to mention, they have so much chemistry being. Together
  5. I think the character of ML rather realistic, I mean they're a lot of people like ML, - not so romantic but he know what to do?
  6. Basically, CRY was my girl crush - my most fav female lead.
  7. Re-reding, for the second time

I enjoyed this. FL and ML had a push and pull relationship. Towards the latter it became a bit more on the comedy side. It's light hearted and not too heavy. Although once in awhile it gets your heart strings pulling. It's also nice that the author included a few chapters on the ML's point of view on how he became interested in the FL. I like it because in this case, FL actually tried to give up on ML and avoid/forget about him when he showed that he was... more>> not interested. <<less

The Peach Blossom painting and the Wedding dress were really touching


ML was so sincere and loyal after he fell in love with her. OTL!!

I like how realistic this slice of life story is.

This novel was good.

I've always been bypassing but gave it a try after some time since I'm an angst with HE fun tho I tend to lean a little to commedy.

At first I hated the ML the way he was obvious to FL feelings but after reading his pov, I suddenly understand him with alot of peach blomossoms I too would fail to pick.

... more>> I loved the fl's foolishness tho she wasn't a push over and I like to suggest that author bless us with her roommate's story.

To sum it up all the story had a little bit of angst, commedy with alot of narcissism from ML but all in all I love it and thanks for the work done both author and translator. <<less

The MC is too s*upid. There was no redeeming quality about her. And it seems like the story was advocating that she had to suffer for his love while he didnt. I dont know, but it placed him on a pedastal I wasnt comfortable with. I read oast ch. 40 but I didnt see any character development from her.

Very enjoyable read. No revenge or great justice delivered. Sweet and fluffy story.

The characters and interactions all seem real and you can easily picture the same things happening to people you know or yourself. My very small gripe is that I wish there was a little more information on some of the side characters relationships because the were also very likable.
