Childhood friend all the way. It's just sweet. But in case the protagonist in the manga doesn't have a childhood friend, I'd probably go for best friend or rival, because in many cases the latter are tsundere.

Who says nothing is impossible? I've been doing nothing for years.

Rival!! Mainly 'cause you get to see the characters as individuals rather than what they're like when they're in love. I'm not a big fan of romance as the main plot point. Long time secret crushes infuriate me mad Just TELLL THEMMMMMMM!!!!

I'm sorry. D: I considered that, but I wanted one clear cut answer from people. So if they had to pick one.. >.>; Plus if I put something like all of them people might assume I meant a harem end. Dx

I'm so sorry! D: I didn't think it'd be this hard for people to chose. Not that I can chose, because..

Quote from leloMew
Doesn't matter - they're pretty much on equal ground to me. All of them have been done to death so it depends on whether the mangaka can put a fresh spin on things. It would have been easier for me to answer my least favourite kind of romance.

Back to the poll, I voted someone new.

That. Er.. Specifically the part I put in bold. It depends on the mangaka and their writing skills. But all the same I put someone new since that was the most recent romance that I read that I liked. xP

Rivals is best. I like the idea of people on opposite sides realizing they actually get along and eventually fall for each other. It's that sort of "love conquers all" theme that I personally believe makes the best romance in any form of entertainment, not just manga.

Long time (secret?) crush or as I like to think of as Unrequited love
I like a little bit of bittersweetness and tragedy in romances or less its tooo sweet/corny lol
I also think itd make the plot more realistic cause come on everyone had one of these right?
...or is it just me-_-

I really like the forbidden love between siblings. It's far more awesome than any kind of love relationship two people can share.

Childhood friend. There is something to be said for the non-sleazy dedication they always have for their love interest.

it was a hard choice between best friend and rival for me. In the end i chose best friend because i has more depth and i like the personal crisis and anxiety of "I don't want to ruin what we have, but i never knew i could love them this much."

They are really similar, sides of the same coin if you will. w/ rival, you know everything you hate most about the other, but you overcome that/accept their faults to find romance. w/ BFFs you still know his/her Pros and Cons, but you know you get along. smile

childhood friend is too easy of a plot, you know you can spend your life w/ them, it's just realizing they are adults now. same w/ sibling, but the taboos are fun to see how they handle them. Idol and crush are basically the same, but different plot elements can be used. I guess my number 3 would be someone new(?)

I hate Hwang Mi-Ri so much. She is a greedy author that chose to sell out quantity over quality. Just try looking at her info page. She's like the Stephen King of the manhwa world only with no good works mixed in. I swear I wont be surprised when the story is released about a cute, yet spunky bishoujo LAMP that is in a love triangle w/ the sofa and the tv, and the problem can only be solved by the couch pouch trying to kidnap the lamp and stab the ceiling fan.

long time secret crush.
because its really relatable, dont we all have that long time secret crush that we fantasize having a serious relationship with? i know i do and theres something so sweet about it.. as long its not in the psychological genre and not too obsessed and twisted.
