Because Pushing Didn’t Work, I Decided to Pull Away


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

The baron’s daughter, Sherry, had a crush on Noel, the eldest of a count’s family and also a knight—ever since they were students.

Every time they met, she’d profess her love to him without fail. Like that, six years went by without any signs of progress.

In the meantime, Sherry heard about a love technique from her friend, ‘If pushing is of no avail, you have to pull!’ and decided to put it into practice. Sherry didn’t want Noel to get overwhelmed by her feelings.

As a result, she decided to put herself under a restriction spell for three months —‘—Don’t confess, laugh, or act intimate with Noel!’

“All those times you told me that I’m the only one for you in your life, I’ve always believed you. I will never let you retract those words.”

Immediately afterwards, Noel suddenly blurted that out and applied for an engagement with her.

Since then, not only had Noel been pampering Sherry, he would also be jealous and would often shower her with passionate words. On the other hand, Sherry continued to take a cold attitude towards Noel due to her restriction spell. Every day, she was in pain. Meanwhile, she also learned of Noel’s circumstances and of his past.

This story was darker than what I've thought it would be. There were so many obsessive loves and one of them even attempted to mu*der someone because the victim hurted his beloved.

... more>>

I'm talking about Cliff, FL's stalker who was also ML's best friend. One of FL's love rival ridiculed her at the party and not long after, Cliff tried to mu*der FL's love rival until she was half-dead. Cliff also kidnapped FL and trapped her in secluded mansion. When FL refused to accept his love, Cliff began losing his control and abused FL.


The obsessive love also included FL and ML's relationship. They're so obsessed with each other but not to the point of becoming twisted. It's just... it became a bit too corny though because they would declare their love to each other with so many sweet words everytime they saw each other.

As for the ending, it was a bit bland for my taste.


The long-awaited wedding didn't happen because the story ended before the wedding happened. What we got was only a glimpse of their past.

It's a cute and simple story... The summary says it all....

I enjoy it very much.

And tbh, the translator was my reason for starting to read this.

By reading the synopsis I found it hilarious and was right.

The premise is simple and fun, the misunderstanding derived from the MC starting being cold to the ML sure ensures a funny development.

But this does not change the fact that some problems arise, and those are the common point in all those shoujo novels. The characters, more so the MC and ML are obsessed, to the point that it gets tiresome (amazing considering this has 25 chapters). The MC being obsessive is expected, considering the title and all, but then... more>> you discover that both are pretty much complete nuts over each other (spoiler but not as the description says it). Chapter 24 shows the giga obsessive pair in their prime, be aware.

Even so, it was funny and enjoyable, there are some points interesting here and there explaining the plot contrivances that should be solved with a sentence, but even so, it is fun.

And I was hoping that the friend (Walt from the other class) would get the bowl in the end, shame he did not. Be happy my boy. <<less

I started reading this cause of the translator and as expected, I was not disappointed by their comments. They very much resonated with my heart.

About this novel, it's good. Pretty nice and fluffy. Characters are cute and adorable. But, there's a twist!

f*ckING HELL!! They're yandere and obsessive yandere at that. Well, I guess poison beats poison cause both of them like it. But the great thing about this is that they have a healthy yandere relationship. They know they're weird and they ask for each others permission (well, most of the time) before acting out. So, it creeps me out sometimes but since it's consensual (?) I'll stay quiet.


Everything is nice. They're no obvious problem there so I recommend it. There might be some small issues if you nitpick about it but I didn't really notice any. Anyway, it's just 25 chapters, read it, have fun and, uh, clear your throat from time to time I guess. Good read! ^^

Translator deserves a 10 for translation and commentary.
(Comments are also at end of chapter and non intrusive.)

Relatively quick read. Characters have their flaws and the author didn't gloss over them but acknowledged their faults. The main characters have obsessive traits but they are probably still redeemable (bc consensual) ? Story is pretty straightforward, no need to think too deeply about background info, as there is close to no world building or in depth supporting characters.

There is a manga, but no one seems to have picked it up... more>> yet (that I could tell). <<less

Give this 5 star for the translator. This is a story about an unhealthy but happy relationship, I hope no immature couple would follow their lead because it's too dangerous.

No world building, unclear plot and background story, 2D characters (or even 1D?) etc. But this is such a short story, what else could I expect? Just read it for the sake of TL comments there, hehe..
