* DoubleStandard: Gage's continued pursuit of Diana following their night together (something that was ''contractually agreed on'' to be one night and no more)--showing up at her job uninvited and unannounced, manipulating situations to bring them together--is presented as adorable and playful, despite the fact that she's clearly not interested and finds his behavior upsetting. When she gets fed up and shows up at ''his'' workplace uninvited and unannounced to tell him off and demand that he leave her alone, ''her'' behavior is presented as alarming and disruptive. So a woman acting like a crazy stalker is. . .a crazy stalker. A man acting like a crazy stalker is in love.

Added DiffLines:

* LadykillerInLove: It's implied that Gage was quite the womanizer, but falls for Diana precisely ''because'' she isn't impressed by his wealth--indeed, she's quite offended by his "money for sex" offer and blasts him for thinking that she or her affection is something that he can buy.


Added DiffLines:

* MillionairePlayboy: Gage, again, though it's "billionaire, rather..


Added DiffLines:

* RejectionAffection: Gage continues pursuing Diana even though she clearly finds his behavior upsetting, even flat-out telling him "I hate you" at one point. He completely dismisses this much as he's dismissed all her other rejections, telling her, "You ''wish'' you hated me." and trying to kiss her even as she's pulling away.

* StalkingIsLove[=/=]StalkerWithACrush: As stated above, Gage's behavior towards Diana can come across like this.
* UnfortunateImplications: After Diana first declines Gage's advances (in the boutique), he later goes to her husband and makes his million-dollar offer. As if Diana is her husband's property and her lack of consent is immaterial to either man. Despite Diana's obvious outrage at this, as well as at Gage's continued pursuit of her--she repeatedly declines his advances to the point of screaming, "I hate you" at him, she eventually leaves her husband to be with him, ultimately making the whole thing seem sexy and romantic rather than downright creepy and offensive.
