If they can force an unwanted romance on us because they assume that's what we want, then they should be able to easily allow a female/female or heck, even male/male relationship.

My female toons are sick of getting hit on by the guys on my ship. Even on my bounty hunter, i get these creepy come-ons from out of nowhere from guys who have like 10 affection when my female companion is maxed out affection (with not even a flirt option).

Check out this completely unwanted dialogue:

Torian: You know... I've been watching you in action for a while now. And what a nice sight it is.

Whether or not they open same sex relationships is a completely different issue and does not remotely address the problem you describe. Why does it matter why you don't want to pursue a romance with someone? Likewise, how exactly does opening up additional avenues of unwanted advances (that might get me stuck in a romance I don't want) solve the problem that I don't want to be involved in any pretend romances, let alone one-night stands, but cannot always avoid them? Just because I don't want my male character to get involved in a fake relationship with a female character does not mean that I want to now have to avoid getting involved in a fake relationship with another male.

In other words, the problem is that the dialog options don't give you the choice to shut down a dialog path without being a complete jerk about it, not that there are not enough people to be jerks to.
