Everyone Thinks that I Like Him


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

From infancy to maturity, what Ye Zhou dislikes the most was “two”.

The reasons were: he was ranked second at home, he had been forever ranked second at school, no matter how diligently he worked and tried, he couldn’t shake off that “second” curse. What was more exasperating was that, at University, not only was he ranked second, but even his appearance that he was proud of had to be classified as second best!

Why can’t I obtain the first place!

The eternal second will rise!

Then, Ye Zhou, after his vigorous efforts finally rises and the result was… the first became his boyfriend.

This is the story of a man who has been forced to be “second” and how he became the first, most popular.

The story is so adorable! I don't have much to say except that there is a lot of fluff and is quite realistic. His interactions with his family and friends aren't overly exaggerated and reflects some things that happen in real life which I find to be either relatable or understandable. And it's also so cute with how MC reacts to the ML! They're such a cute couple :)

So... I finished this story already. I can't write a helping review for you to decide whether to read this or not. But I can help to write my own opinion while I read it?

At first, I was just trying to read anything that could take my interest — because I'll probably drop it after a few chapters, anyway. Too much damsel-in-distress or dependent shou in Chinese BL novels. And it drop a lot of stories from my list. I desided to reading some chapters and somehow hooked by the... more>> way the author writen the friendship between the ML and MC. It's really sweet, I can imagine how their relationship will be going even if it become platonic later — which of course, make me a little bit sour remembering that this is a BL story (because I rather it become platonic than destroying my expectation, really). But, fortunately, the way their relationship progressing did not dissapoint me. It's really balance, between the missunderstanding, the way each characters coped with their feeling, everything flow nicely.


A little bit dissapointed though that it still ending with a little bit depending shou and too superior gong. But at least it's not really severe. So I still can accept it.



And about the ending, if you count it from the 4th extra, it's already quite satisfactory, actually, eventhough it feel a little bit bland. You already got response from all the significant people about their relationship. There is no questions left. So you can rest assure.



Just... why there is only one smut scene!? Like... I know the story want to give me a domestic feeling. But if you only want to give me once, then don't bother give me anything, ah!

Uhuk, sorry. My bad.

This story is great!

I read the two reviews giving it three stars and thought the novel would be average. But in the end, it was a pleasant surprise.

The light and fluent prose and vivid ambiance make the read as easy as breathing while the intelligent and sharp humor brings out smiles to the readers' lips at every few lines.

... more>> However, the most remarkable merit of the novel is the impressive ability of the author to create and depict vivid characters.

The author took the two most classic gong and shou personalities in Danmei and turned them into real people to the point where you feel you could eventually meet them on the streets. Which is quite different from the utopic characters that are frequently present in novels and that could never exist outside of the fictional universe.

The powerful and indifferent male God became someone that actually has personal feelings and thoughts under the aloofness while the whimsical MC is not excessively naive and unreasonable.

Both are intelligent and smart and can hold a conversation while exchanging light jabs with each other, which makes watching their interaction very fun and pleasant.

It is true that their schoolmates are nosy and make a mess out of the misunderstanding at the beginning, but they rarely cross the line to a real invasion of personal space so it doesn't turn unpleasant or aggravating. It is, otherwise, realistic.

Furthermore, they are clearly not being mean or intruding only for their own amusement. They are truly trying to give a hand even if it is not needed or requested.

But, above all, the MC is someone with a strong mentality that can healthily and reasonably deal with their interference.

And, as a plus, the ML is not one of the arrogant kind that treats the MC harshly because he thinks the other is trying to curry favors. He observes and understands the situation and is mature enough to not make a mountain out of a molehill.

All in all, it is a great read that is perfectly capable of providing plenty of enjoyable moments.

Also, before I forget, the translation is top quality. :) <<less

This is such a cute story!

Our MC is so hilarious, a natural airhead and our ML is a god sent gorgeous iceberg and together they make a very funny combi!

But the most funny part is how their surrounding (the whole school actually) misunderstood them and always tried hard to create opportunities for them omg I can't stop laughing reading this one 😂😂😂

The translator did a very good job delivering this story too, congratulations!

Ahh, this is like balm for the soul~

Tired of revenge/face-slapping novels?

Tired of yandere/possessive/controlling/self-centered MLs?

This is a humorous and fluffy slice-of-life college romance that starts from a misunderstanding between the MC and ML who are both outstanding, handsome and intelligent students. The story takes us through the university life of the two students, to moving-out and coming-out, and attending grad school. The side characters (dorm mates) are absolutely precious and hilarious. ... more>>

It's so cute that despite the MC being forever 'second place' in terms of studies/competitions, he's actually extremely friendly/outgoing/valued by his community, so his interpersonal skills can be said to definitely outshine the ML.


The relationship progression is a sweet slow-burn. The author builds up a true friendship and trust between the main characters, so it avoids over-used tropes like "the vinegar-bucket ML can't stand other people appreciating the MC." This is one of the few really positive relationships I've seen in CNovels where the two people in a relationship not only bring out the best in each other and wholeheartedly support each other, but also give each other space and mutual trust.


It's unfortunate but most CN books completely romanticize rape/obsession/stalking/stockholm syndrome/dependent personality disorder/possessiveness etc. So the romantic relationships portrayed tend to be extremely unrealistic as well as unhealthy.


Fantastic translation, the humor comes across on point. I would re-read! <<less

It's a cute fluffy school romance comedy akin to Hana Kimi or any typical shoujo. It's full of misunderstandings that eventually brings the main protagonists together. The entire story is comfortable and well paced. The side characters are funny and full of personality. The ending is especially satisfying since it neatly wraps up all the storylines. The last 20 chapters is essentially an extended "happily ever after".

I rated this novel 4 stars instead of 5 since there's nothing new or unique about this novel. It's your classic story with all... more>> the tropes and stereotypes, but packaged nicely. The MC is insecure and tsun, the ML is confident and perfect. As usually, the ML is much smarter and better than the MC in almost every way (except the MC is better at cleaning?). The plot progresses as expected after the first chapter.

While this is not a must read, I would recommend reading this novel if you have the time. It's fluffy and cute but also easy to read. Oftentimes, the downside of reading BL novels is the poor writing, but this novel is entirely translated and of high quality. <<less

If you're looking for a good light-hearted read, mixed with a bit of angst here and thereㅡ or just something to make you smile and giggle, then I recommend this book to you!

I wish there were more novels like this, it helps me be at ease and think about my terrible life choices. Both ML and the MC are intelligent, but they're both kinda clueless about their feelings. They trust and love each other a loooot that it hurts my teeth. Their friends are so cute too, though they often... more>> misunderstood those two, they're still very very supportive of their relationshipㅡ not only them actually, but the entire school! The fact that every students worship accepts their relationship regardless of their gender gave this easy and nice atmosphere that made it even 🌻🌼🌸🍀🍂🍀🌺🍁🌲🌴 to read. I don't know how to explain that, let's just say you feel more "flowery" when reading it. Like that shiny flower BG effect in mangas lol

Definitely one of my favorite novel in 2018, and probably in my top 5! Thank you so much to the translators for doing such a great job! &Gt;ㅁ<) 99 <<less

fun and more humorous than I expected, especially after the rough start at the beginning. I wish i, too could worship at the Shang Ye alter before finals/ presentations/ dissertation. The test gods are something I could actually get behind.

as for the story, I love the friendship that develops between the two and the fact that both are fairly equal, though this being Chinese, they aren't presented as a reversible couple (I've never seen a reversible couple in Chinese BL so if you know of any, please recommend). As someone... more>> who very much dislikes when the MC is presented as a girl in everything but physical gender, (especially the stupid, need to be rescued all the time types), I am grateful for stories like this where the MC is smart and retains his normal brain function even after getting together with the ML. It's also nice not to see an abusive, obsessive, domineering ML for a change. There is a little bit of angsty parent stuff but it was handled very well and I thought in the end it was fairly realistic because


my cousin is gay and his parents reacted like YZs and haven't spoken to him in five years while his husbands parents accepted them, so their situation was very similar to the MC and ML

I've never wrote a review yet I'm so annoyed by this story extras and ending I feel I have to vent.

I was going to give it 3 stars thinking I shouldn't be strict because it's a slice of life and I shouldn't be harsh just because I don't like the genre but srsly just because it's a slice of life does it have to be SO VERY BORING !!!

its supposed to be the easy going kind of plot with no real conflict and overdose of drama and believe me I've... more>> read a lot great novels with no real complicated plot so it can be done. This one is just too boring with no passion except for the passion of defending gays right, and not even that was done nicely.

ppl keep saying it's fluffy but it's not really every single event that should have been romantic was written dryly


when confessing boy was that boring there wasn't much giving of the ML feelings before it. MC had the most stupid reason for not understanding his feelings towards ml, and when they finally got together there wasn't that fluffy or passionate reaction I don't think it was realistic either

The event in which their friend kept misunderstanding their relationship was funny and realistic at first but afterward it just got stupid I mean who would think he's smashing a car with a duster and who the h*ll cleans a car roof with a duster!! These are students of a high level university not KG kids.

their first time the fudge is with this sho he just had his first kiss recently and most likely was a top since his first love was apparently a bottom yet he was so accepting and fast to ask foe a second just cause he was loose and it's a waste just to do it once, , even if you want to think well yeah there are ppl like that but This is a novel couldn't the author just this once in this major event add little fluff and romantic feeling to it just leave realism to the family issues and the being gay thing, , humph

and finally when the ML proposed, , if that was even a proposal I mean what does the author want, , srsly I only got the feeling that they are way too serious and boring "sigh"


the extra were no extra it was the author making up for the loose end in the plot and not even a satisfying one, the last extra just made me explode that I took the time to write this review


the lady was starting to appeal to us when the author decided to show her as a proud b*ch only to afterward only confirm that she's going to be the sister in low to the brother who is a nice character, , ahdifjfiendk 😤


htis is only talking about the romantic side didn't get to the writing style, , 1 star it is but if you like slice of life yaoi, , this might be to your liking <<less

(The rating is my genuine score, I never up- or down- score based on others' scores - everyone's perspective is valid, so it's OK if the overall score doesn't match my personal evaluation.)

I have issues with the start of this story, but it was worth bearing with. The rest of it is exactly what I wish more translated RomCom novels (and BL in particular) were like.


So, the first 10-15 chapters feature everyone around the MC misunderstanding him, misinterpreting everything he says according to their own ideas and deciding... more>> everything for him. It's supposed to be humourous and I think many people enjoy this kind of humour. For me, stories like this are nothing more than frustrating, irritating, painful and infuriating. I really hate it when the highlight of the story is supposed to be that nothing goes right for the MC and nobody takes what he says seriously. It's the humour of "Love Stops Rumours", which I had to drop, but others loved. If you are not like me and enjoy that kind of thing, then you will find the beginning really funny instead of excruciating.


However, if you are like me, don't be put off by the beginning. Once I waded through that, this completely became the kind of BL RomCom I was hoping for.

The MC and ML's relationship develops naturally and comfortably in an everyday way. It's written with a gentle, humourous, lighthearted but sensible tone. There are no overdramatic problems, but instead issues arise and are dealt with promptly and reasonably (which is like a breath of fresh air).

The writing of this story is fairly simple, easy-to-read and never boring, but I felt secure and relaxed and enjoyed the ride. This is a story where you enjoy the humourous tone and thoughtfulness and in the end feel like there's a sincere and satisfying relationship built.

I LOVE that this isn't the typical OP/overbearing ML x innocent and boyish/girlish MC I find in too many Chinese RomComs, especially the currently translated danmei/BL. The ML does initially appear to fit the stereotype of the too-smart, too-rich, too-handsome, cold-to-everyone-else Chinese ML, but the story instead shows him as a very normal human (well, a very handsome, very intelligent, normal human) and is able to show more of a balance between the main couple - which I've felt starved for recently.

A small nod for the other characters, too. It's not a deep or serious story, but it shows not only lively fellow students (although they are initially infuriating), but also the positives and negatives of the main couple's family members, which in turn makes the main couple have slightly more depth.

The translation is very good and the story is highly readable and enjoyable. I was really glad I'd persisted through the excruciating beginning. <<less

Two guys get harassed because guy A took a picture of guy B so he can exchange the photo for one of guy C. A likes C, but everyone is convinced that he likes B and they keep forcing them together.

They moved A's stuff into B's room. B was okay with it, but still.


Over time, the two do seem to become more comfortable with each other, but I can't bring myself to like it. Especially because of the cringeworthy comments you can find. It just isn't for me.

Very funny and heartwarming! I liked that MC and ML are equal, unlike in most other stories I've read. The whole university was hilarious. I laughed a lot.

The story is well written and the translation is very good too.

If I had to be picky, my only "complaint" is that there really isn't a physical description of the main characters other than the fact that they are tall and handsome, so I couldn't really pictured them in my head when I wanted to.

If anyone can recommend other stories where the main... more>> couple are in such equal terms, please do so :-) <<less

Their relationship progression is both hilarious and realistically portrayed!! I really love their relationship with each other, as well as both characters individually. MC is funny and cute, ML is aloof and smart, very classic. But the way they bicker and interact with each other is adorable, and coupled with how their entire university is shipping them harder than they're shipping each other, it's just too funny HAHAHA I wish at the end it was exposed to everyone that they actually WEREN'T going out when... more>> everyone thought they were, that'd definitely be hilarious, although they'd probably not believe it.

I love all of the side characters too. Tbh the friends don't really have specific personalities, but there's so many of them it wouldn't make sense for them to do so haha. The exploration of familial ties is also really great. I really love Ye Heng, and how much he really treasures MC (that's why I'm so sad about that last side story; what the heck, is she a good girl or not?????). Although he subconsciously rejects gays, for the sake of his brother he makes himself understand. The Shang family as a whole though is more lovable, especially Shang Youyou, and hehe Shang Qingping that tsundere.

The pacing is also perfect; it's definitely a slice of life story, not very dramatic but a heartwarming read. Those that enjoy this genre, would definitely enjoy this story. Characters are great, plot is great, translation is great, no real complaints. Also, there's only one PG-13+ scene, which can easily be skipped.


But DAMN I really wanted a change of pace thus for Shang Jin to be the shou hahahaha


Definitely a recommend!!!!! <<less

So, I guess I will just write down my review since this story is kind of interesting. *Warning, probably spoiler*

Overall the drama, the silliness of the MC & ML's friends what made this is funny and interesting, but at the end, when they finally admitted their feeling, I think it was going too smoothly (*spoiler* aside from their family disapproval), if you compared it with how awkward the first time they started to get closer.

But yeah, if you are looking for a simple and refreshing story, I recommended this one... more>> since I actually kind of enjoy the drama in this story, so start read it now, lol. <<less

Nice story, it tells you the development from the beginning of MC & ML.

The development is pretty slow but it's fun to read. (So if you're not into this, it's either you persevere to read it or drop it entirely)

ML is laid back with straight forward attitude. MC is slightly reserved but aware with his own preference. Their funny/sarcastic interaction made me laugh every now and then.

... more>>

there was this part where MC's bestfriend came and sleep in the same bed with MC that caused ML anger


Both MC & ML were worshipped by their friends and peers


yes, there's smut.... but mentioned only once😅

the freaking shangye number really really made me laugh. It's basically the 3rd main character. Funny and heartwarming, this is a great story that starts off comedic and slowly ensnares you with feelings. At the end, the main couple have built a life together and are looking forward to a lifetime's worth of love in their future.

has an almost wistful tone that gave off the feel of a manga done in watercolors. Recommended for a feelgood read~

This was wholesome, cute, and funny. The plot isn’t anything deep, nor is the character development compelling, but it’s a light-hearted romantic comedy or a misunderstanding that causes two strangers to become friends, and eventually lovers. If you’re looking for something to warm your heart and make you giggle and squeal like a high schooler, for something to make you single dog club members eat that damn dog food, then this story is for you! It’s a different dynamic to the typical Danmei novel in that I feel the two... more>> parties are much more equal. It’s less about an overbearing gong and weak shou, and more of an equal relationship in which the Shang Jin and Ye Zhou are both each other’s best friends, life partners, and devoted lovers. They’re both comfortable with their sexuality and what they want out of life. There isn’t any dog blood drama (though I do occasionally adore that) and it’s anoverall great time.

Although this story takes a long time to get to their romance, the romance is so sweet. It's not like other bl novels which have weird and dirty abusive romances. The main characters love to tease each other and are most comfortable when they aren't being too grim. Its an angst-free and light hearted, funny read. I strongly recommend it. And thank you to Mosstree for translating it <3
