Go To

Of all the hopeless objects on which I might target my sincerest feelings, I had to pick him! I may as well ordain as a nun. Nuns are supposed to be wed to Christ, or God, or some such, aren't they? That's more than I'm ever likely to experience.

Men just aren't smart to recognize when they're being hit on. We're kind of dumb that way. If a woman's not interested, that's the one we go for, but if a woman is interested, we're blindly naive to it for some reason. If a female boss is hitting on a male worker, he's not gonna catch onto it any time soon.
The Nostalgia Critic, regarding a commercial in which a male boss hits on a female worker and ponders the reason why the reverse case is never addressed.

Tomorrow's just another day, with stupid old Yosuke and Yukiko being pretty, as always, and Kanji and Naoto still not realizing that they like each other, and Souji, my boyfriend

''You have all the makings of a great scholar, Cyrus. But allow me to offer you a word of warning: For all your intellect, you have always been clumsy in the matters of the heart. I know that your research is more important to you than anything. But you would do well to give some thought to how you treat the fairer sex. You are more handsome than you give yourself credit for. If you are not careful, you might find your words and actions... misconstrued... by those around you."
Odette, writing to Cyrus Albright, Octopath Traveler
