One of the best stories I've read in a while.

I'll be honest, I have a thing for short stories anyway, but this really is a warmhearted masterpiece. It's a typical case of "I wish there was a continuation".

It follows the tropes of the MC posting about his love life/blind date online. But even through that, you get to feel the connection between the two leads. There's not much drama, but in a way that makes it so much more realistic. The story is very straight to the point with only... more>> minor misunderstandings between the characters. Together with the superb translation from the translater, it's a very good read.


I especially love the end part, where the ML posts about his POV, it's really sweet.


The story is short and written in a way that before you even realise it, you're already at the end of it. So I very much recommend that you read it. <<less

Short. Sweet. Fluffy. Direct to the point.

It's a forum post style story-telling. The first-person perspective is enough to tell everything there is to it. In such short chapters, I was able to feel the connection and chemistry between the two characters.

Just a short read, but it's worth it.

don't look at the buttheads who put it at two or three stars. Actually, don't even look at the people who placed it at four! This is a five star story!!! A five star story!!!!!!

it's sweet soft fluff with an equally sweet and soft ending. Story is excellent. Characters are excellent. Translation is excellent. Like I said: five stars!!!

Cute and fluffy. I wish there was more to it. Everyone in the story was so understanding about the LGBTQ community (regardless of their own sexuality), that I felt my heart melting. I liked how the MC realized his feelings slowly.

RECOMMENDED for a light read.

Short. Cute. Kinda confusing to read.

It a mix of reading MC's forum post and narration. There no indication of which is MC's forum post and which is narration and the sudden "goodbye guys" always makes me confuse for a few seconds before I realized that is MC's post. Also the sudden POV change in half of chapter 4 confuse me a lots. I didnt even realize it was ML POV until the 2nd paragraph

Overall the translation is very good (especially the foot notes because boy there lots and lots... more>> of pop culture reference there), the story is simple and cute. If you are looking for light read this is definitely a good choice to go <<less

This was so cuteeee, the friend really had a good eye for matchmaking ❤️

Also the way I squeeled in this scene👇


She laughed, looked Shen up and down, and said “You’re not going to introduce me to your friend?” I quickly said, “This is my friend. His name is Shen.” I then turned to Shen and said, “This is my friend, Li. She just came back from abroad.”

She extended her hand toward Shen as she corrected me, “Ex-girlfriend.”

I looked at Shen, who smiled and grabbed her hand. “Current boyfriend.”

Cute little short story that's exactly what it says on the tin. Slightly jarring POV jump partway through the final chapter, but overall a nice bit of fluff.

I’m sorry I’m really sorry. I know it’s a very short story but somehow the ending lost me. I have no idea what happened. It just suddenly voila, they were together.

It was quite disappointing to me cause the first 3 chapters are cute and fluffy but the last one just like the author decided to end everything. I mean, they could add a part (not even an entire chapter) just so the plot is smoother. But I guess it’s not for me and I have to click the rating 😢

Beautiful amazing brilliant story. It's nothing extraordinary. Such a simple story. I related so much with MC. Oh MC, I'd have loved to be your friend. We both love Cigarettes After Sex's Sweet. Man. I truly wish I had a friend like the MC IRL. I hope someone can inreoduce me to a guy the way ML gets MC. The way they share common interests. Ah, I'm a girl who only likes guys tho (most probably?) Such a wonderful story. Do read it.

I really loved this short but beautiful story.

It's really quite short but trust me it's a very stunning one.

Idk why but this story felt too real to me as if it's the writer's own love life story. It's a just a guess though.

I enjoyed reading it very much, it's same as the story title implied, not much.

"Finally, I hope everyone can love what they love, be loved, wait patiently, be comforted in times of loneliness, have courage in times of cowardice, and have a lover to be happy with.

I hope you can all stay healthy and safe."
Thanku Author❤

I would highly recommend it to all.

Thanku author and translators for the story.
