Yep it's weird.
I rushed through my first romance (trooper fem) cause I wanted to see how it turned out. Loved it. And then........... That was months and months and months ago. Aric goes with me everywhere and says nothing
Now, when I level a new character, I draw it out, don't finish the romance till after the story's done, cause I know there's nothing more after that. Those last few convos are sad actually, when they should be happy, cause I know I won't hear from them again. Sucks.
