Anon, if that's your point, you need to understand that many people are just not as romantically invested on every character like that on a personal level and can prefer to just enjoy the romance instead. I don't need a thousand seasonal waifus for example, one is enough fort me. You can enjoy a nice love story, yuri or not, without having to self-insert into everything, you know.
You can have characters you want to fuck, characters you want to ship, and characters you simply like in different ways.
