Only main characters suffer when in love with each others, crush or romance.
Crushing on your best friend: Just a crush, your ex went 10 times better and dances with magic.
Realized your feeling too late: Stay by her side because you love her that much if nothing will change.
Feelings still holding you down: just be a breakup buddy with a secondary character, not actually dating so nothing to break.
You kissed each others: nah not real, it was a curse you just learned about, and to break it you have to permanently lose the memory you actually fell in love, and everything is fine.
Can't just wait for the day they DO get together, suddenly every relationship problem will pop up on them.
It's depressing that a lot are willing to write everything they did together from the beginning as "strictly friends","brother and sister","the curse did everything".
True love isn't that worth it if it ends up never returned or acted upon.
