Would you date this character?
If this character asked you out, would you be fangirl-squealing for joy? (Or fanboy-squealing? Is there such a thing as a fanboy, and would he be squealing? I don't even want to know.) Would you faint out of sheer excitement? Would you make plans for that date to happen, oh, five minutes from now?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, there is an issue. A serious issue. As in, get professional help immediately.
Okay, maybe you don't need a therapist. But do you need to read this post? Yes, you do.
Here's the thing: if you are this excited about dating your novel's love interest, you might have overlooked a major part of character development. Character flaws.
If you would love to date your love interest, then you might have subconsciously made this character into your ideal, perfect-world boyfriend/girlfriend. Instead of writing about a realistic person, you might've created someone so perfect and idealistic that it simply isn't possible to be like them in real life. You didn't create a real-life character--you created the kind of impossible, flawless human being that you'd love to date but doesn't exist.
So please, when writing romance into your novel, consider your feelings towards the love interest. Make sure you haven't abandoned character development.
