I was really enjoying this right up until the last couple chapters. I feel like the author completely bailed on their last 40 chapters of slow character development with chapter 45, and it was super disappointing.

Well it was like a stretching story where you are always waiting for something to happen but nothing happens. Do hee is an insecure hardworking protoganist whereas Hae kyung is a laid back nonchalant womanizer. The story pacing is very slow and its all about the food sometimes.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
By showing Do hee just wearing a short skirt should we believe that she had grown in character and came over her insecurities? Hae kyung was also a weak indecisive lead as every past girlfriend wanted him to chase them to see if he's also invested in the relationship. It was like he was ghosting them. It didnt came to any conclusion also in the end as what will happen if Do hee met his past girlfriends and did he had genuine feelings for Do hee or he just wanted to fill the space!!! This story should've better with bittersweet ending rather than HEA of meeting in the end by chance.

This webtoon really touches to the "lonely" society, which I think most young adults face nowadays IMO (I know because I can relate!). Realistically speaking, it's kind of impossible to be so well-off like the two main leads, but this premise is important as it allows the story to focus on the two main characters and their experiences (albeit more on Doe Hee, but oh well).

That's the whole point of this webtoon: relationship building, or learning to find yourself with respect to your relationships with others. The pace is really slow because we're exploring character development here, so there aren't any crazy plot twists or anything of that sort. This webtoon is nice and slow.

You'll find that the overall tone feels kind of melancholic and depressing. I realize it's because both characters are "flawed" -- and it's nice the characters figure it out themselves too. I also was worried because it seemed like Hae Kyung was a super flat character and that he won't change, but the ending was satisfying enough.

I really appreciate the maturity of this story and its progression. It really makes you think about yourself and your relationships. If you're a "lonely person" like me, you might end up feeling kind of melancholic by reading this too. But the takeaway that I got from this is that you shouldn't be afraid of yourself or others (wondering if others will love you for who you are, or if you'll love others for who they are). Just eat the food with no regrets.

I had an issue with one plot point.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
In the second last chapter when they meet up again, Doe Hee's outburst was completely unwarranted and really random. It was never shown that she wanted him to call first, so this part made zero sense. Whatever though, they just needed a reason to come back together after their break from each other. I just think it could've been... different...

Shout out to us single mid-20 year olds with no friends. Subtle Asian Leftovers, anyone? We're in this together!

The first thing you need to know about SWHDT is that it is, hands-down, the most realistic portrayal of life and love during all stages of relationships (and past them, too) that I've come across so far in manga/manwha/webtoons. For one, the protagonists are older, have gone through many experiences and events, and have responsibilities - and this all shows. They are at the point in their lives where the people around them are starting to close off their worlds to just them and their SOs/families, and it's in this midst that they're trying to figure out what they want from life.

Doe-Hee (the female lead) having just come out of a long term relationship, and Hae-Kyung, having broken up with yet another woman, meet accidentally and decide to have dinner together. And unlike in other works, there's not really instant chemistry (though there is some) - there's awkwardness, there's stilted short talk, and they don't really know what to say until it comes to the topic of their past relationships. Finding common ground, they relive their memories and tell tales, and they decide to meet weekly in order to just have someone to talk to about this. That's it. The webtoon is a romance, yes, but it's one that focuses heavily on not just their romance but the theme of relationships (good, bad, romantic, platonic) overall. It lets both the reader and the characters come to understand relationships better.

I won't delve into the progression of Doe-Hee and Hae-Kyung's relationship, but their talks and the topics and content of them are relatable in so many ways. It's also extremely refreshing to see two people who clearly have no regrets over their past loves, who learn and cherish from the memories they made with those people, and who also reflect on their own selves, their flaws in relationships and in life, and their desire to become a better person. Unlike your typical romance protagonists, having been through their experiences make them know what truly does make or break relationships.

Honestly, though it's behind a paywall, it's worth paying for (or waiting for). SWHDT is one of those down to earth, realistic webtoons that painstakingly devotes its time not to futile drama or crazy love triangles, but to just letting the reader see how the protagonists grow and reflect. It's a gem amongst not-so-well-known works online, but you'd be (and I was) lucky to find it.
