One day, two forum posts titled “I Seem Unsuited for Dating” appeared on Promontory Forum’s Feelings board nearly at the same time.

User A: 「I have a severe case of mysophobia and possessiveness. I cannot accept it if my girlfriend has had relationship experience. I went to see a psychiatrist, but I haven’t improved. I might truly be unsuited for dating.」

User B: 「I think I might be unsuited for dating. I very much enjoy the ambiguous phase of sounding out each other’s feelings, but after becoming official, if they want to hug me, or perhaps kiss me, I will immediately feel nauseous.」

Internet User: 「I beseech that the two of you be together. Don’t go and harm anyone else.」

A cliffhanger ending saved by a sweet epilogue 🫶

Our Chef's possessive character, but really he's not that 'black', I can even say that he's one of the sweet possessive characters 🥹

Our Xia Wei, I don't know, she's not annoying, but she's not fun either, maybe because Zhi Zou's character is too memorable, so Xia Wei seems ordinary (?).

But still, another refreshingly light story from Chesnut worth reading 🫶

Thanks to the translator for her hard work in completing this piece 🫶

My prev review was written in April 2017 when I'd only read chapter 5. Now Jan 2019, after 1.5 years, I finally picked up this series again after accumulating the chapters.

I usually don't read much rom-com, I favour heavier/ darker story plots. But at times, I wanna take a break and just relax with some light hearted read!

I've liked this story the moment I'd read the synopsis. It's the classic enemies turned lovers trope but it's done well and v enjoyable to read! Bonus- No annoying side characters!... more>>

The dialogues are sooo witty and relatable, I find myself laughing at times. Also, the description of food had me salivating and made me hungry.

-Translations are great and concise. I'm praying for fixed schedule releases. But at this rate.... the story might take another 1.5 years to complete or worst still, left incomplete. Please continue translating this story! I will wait patiently! Thanks! ? <<less

The characters are actually quite realistic in the sense that they have a lot of flaws. The story itself is nice and well written and also translated.


sorry but it was manipulative of the ML to get her drunk so he could have s*x with her, and when they actually did... idk its common in chinese novels that the FL resists but it didnt feel consensual and more just him getting what he wanted and her just accepting ?

This novel's flow (reading wise and plotwise) is pretty good. Translators are doing a great job. Story is really quickly paced, so you don't have chapters and chapters trying to build up a slow burn/development of a dynamic. (Not that it's a bad thing, just that sometimes it feels the author doesn't really know what they're going for, but this one sure does.) Things happen pretty quickly but develop naturally (which I like), and not too dramatic.

MC and ML are both interesting in their dynamic, and kind of cute, actually.... more>> They both bump heads at first, but it's interesting to see how that develops. It also makes me want to read more and see how they actually get together. Because

For example, the MC doesn't spend 2342340 chapters being ignorant of her feelings towards the ML, but realistically acts about it. (Which is, passive aggression, lol.) Also her friends teasing her constantly about Mr. Jiang from downstairs lololol it's pretty fun.


Another one of the great graces of this novel is the chatroom conversations with her friends (def an entertaining read for that) and the small plots with the cat. <<less

I'm giving this a 3-star rating. I find the FL very annoying. She's not likeable at all. It's like the author was going for cutesy and feisty, but she just ends up being annoying and bratty. Also, the characters are a bit flat. I'm close to dropping this, but since I seem to be almost there, I guess I'll persevere...

One commentor said that the FL is disgusting. She easily falls for guys and that she even thought that if her letter reached her high school crush at that time in the past they would have already had a baby.

I tell you... That commentor was saying 6ullsh!t. S/he did not tell you the whole truth!

First off, she's easily swayed by guys, only because she is hopeful that she would be comfortable with someone. But she was never swayed after she likes the ML. Her like for ML is not the... more>> same as her previous bfs, wherein those guys outright chased her. In fact, they were enemies to friends to lovers.

About that "if her letter reached her high school crush at that time in the past they would have already had a baby". The scene was:

FL's highschool crush, which is also her first love, confessed to her. At that time, she already don't love the guy and she already likes ML. She immediately, without a second thought, REJECTED HIM. After the rejection, she hypothesize that if he had confessed 10 years ago, or that if he received her love letter, there would be a possibility they are already married and have a child that can already buy soy souce. This is only said to emphasize how long 10 years is.

She thought of this WITHOUT any regret or feelings, just a thought. Because, let's face it, she liked the guy back then, so it was an obvious thought, duh. Her friends also said the same thing about her and her first love, that if they confessed they would already been married, but she was the one who told her friends to stop thinking about the past bc its already in the past. Also, she only had that thought bcs, at that time, she is in unrequited love with the ML. She never has a chance with ML (she had ex bfs). They were only friends.

She is not disgusting. She knows what she likes. A little immature, but it was only because she is comfortable with the ML that she can joke around with him.


It is good. Really recommended. Don't listen to the bad reviews. <<less

This is another light, sweet, and funny novel that's perfect for a quick read. There is no drama or misunderstanding and the ending is very satisfying.


... more>>

No matter what, I can't help my self to hate FL's behaviour. She's so childish even after she becomes a mother. It's okay if she feels like 18 yo in her heart but to actually acts like one? Uh, I don't think so.

And that time when her friend ridicules an autistic person in group chat and FL gets along with the topic, I almost drop this novel. But I endure it because I want to see how this novel is gonna end.

I actually like ML. He learns so hard to be the best boyfriend and later husband with almost zero experience. I can see his growth thorough the story. On the other hand, FL who is more experienced that ML, get worse everytime and I seriously think that ML deserves better.

The romance is so cute, but the MC is kinda annoying~

It is another light hearted romance from Chesnut, except that this time the MC is some kind of... weird girl. And the ML is an ass. In a way...

The ML has interest in her from the begining, except with some misunderstanding. When it was cleared, the ML is much more likeable.

disgusting nauseating shit, mainly due to fl., I don't like her character, you should not just like anyone, and carefully choose then invest feelings and only show love if only the other person is also willing to do the same. But here its like she just loves any random guy, I don't get her point. Looking at this at first and when this FL finally falls in love with the male lead here, it feels utterly disgusting. Look she already starts loving male lead and then thinks if her letter... more>> reached her high school crush at that time in the past they would have already had a baby. It just feels nauseating reading this, when she thinks how she would have had a baby already with someone else when she is already in love with another person. It would make sense if the male lead also had this kind of thought process because it can justify their negatives as dogs love dogs. But here ML is a proper man and deserves someone better than that shitty fl. My thoughts on relationships and not related to the novel specifically:


i dont think there is anything wrong with wanting a pure partner without experience if you yourself are the same, as it signifies the importance you give and the commitment to your partner, . True love comes with intense possessiveness and wanting to know everything about the significant other and it should be something that both should reciprocate. People say that, mostly in western countries that you should have your own private life and the partner should not question, if you feel that way then you do not love your partner truly and such relationships can break any time if a situation pops up, and as seen in surveys many married couples tend to cheat and divorce, f*ck some people even tolerate cheating, well they are obviously not people in love.

if you are really in love, that only happens when the other person is also really in love with you, this comes with unconditional trust and security in your relationship and lasts a lifetime with sweetness. Thats why it really rare, and its not applicable to most couples. People nowadays are selfish and their sense of morals is getting twisted, well more so than in the past, finally f*cking up any away to build harmonious relationships with others.


tch.. I shouldn't have read this, why do authors even make these kind of characters in romance novels, if they put this kind of character in some hentai ntr sh*t it would make more sense.

this is the second worst FL I have seen in chestnut novels that I have read so far, worst being the FL in "Sonata: Fleeing to Avoid an Arranged Marriage".

finally I would like to say, you can like many people many, but love only one person when the other is willing to do the same, with commitment.

I hope I find a better novel to read. <<less

I read this because I have a severe case like ML (T﹏T)
It's not like this when I was a teenager, but when I turn 20 my possessiveness turned extremely violent (T﹏T)

What should I do, I seem unsuited for dating..... Reading this didn't help me a bit.

I will still give this novel 5 stars for being hilarious, fluffy, and just f*cking funny. The ML is a neat freak and doesn't like his future GF to previously have BFs. FL thinks she's still 18 y.o despite almost being 30. Love the FLs girl friends. They love, roast, and support her with her decisions.

Btw, can someone tell me if Xia Wei's BFFs get their own novels too? I'd love to read what happens to them. Thanks!

It's been some time since I've read this, but the only thing I can remember is that the FL is really annoying. It doesn't seem so at first, but the more you read the more insufferable she becomes. I almost dropped this because I couldn't stand her anymore.

As for why... She's dumb, childish, coward and doesn't have a backbone. If the ML says go east, she wouldn't go west. And I hate her joke about being 18yo, who even says that??

I just think there's only reviews about the fluffiness and... more>> nothing about her brattiness, so there. <<less

The novel is very funny and little by little the protagonists help each other overcome their deficiencies, I love their interactions and as they gradually begin to attract. Very highly recommended, besides it is short.♥

As expected... Chestnut doesn't disappoint ^.^ I laughed a lot a few times because of this story and altho the fluff maybe slower than her other works, it doesn't make it less enjoyable. Really satisfying endings, as usual with the abundance of side stories :)

I hereby agreed to Dr Zhang, the psychiatrist that help Ceo Yu quoted; Love is cure to all disease. ✧◝ (⁰▿⁰) ◜✧ The story is so fluffy and funny. I love how they interacted in daily life. But still, when exactly did Mr Jiang propose to our Xia Wei Wei?!!!♡ (> ਊ <) ♡

You see those genre and tags up there?

That's exactly what you get.

It's just a light hearted romcom novel to read when you have some time, or to read to warm up your heart a little bit when you feel down.

Not the best out there but far from being a tr*sh novel.

It's just light hearted and fun

I think it´s a good light read with sweet and unique characters, lots of fluff, and plenty of pet loving moments. I recommend it, specially for those who need a break from the plot-heavy and dramatic novels or are looking for a simple but fun love story.

This is overwhelmingly cute and I love how realistic the friend conversations are. I was tearing up from laughing so hard as the FL's friends roasted her and each other in the chat in good fun, it's exactly how I talk with my friends.
