Isn't the Male JC's romance option obtained in Chapter 3? I have two JCs, both on different servers, neither that high, but I was pretty sure you don't even get Nadia untill Chapter 3 and she warms up to the male JC.
Yeah, they're both late in the game, the latest acquisition of LIs in the game, lol. Iresso is on Hoth and Nadia on Belsavis. Both of their characters are...warmer? I guess is the right word...than someone like Scourge or Zenith, who are both expressly distrusting sorts. The JC romances (at least for fem!JC, haven't run a male) feel rushed a bit, but not entirely out of the realm of reasonablness.
Edited cause Hoth is end ch2.
