My heart is melting, this is so cute and sad at the same time! “How To Love You” was not what I expected, but it was so much better than I thought.

Summary of How To Love You:

Only after you’re friends with someone you like, do you realize that a confession is something that requires courage.

Compared to having you, I’m more afraid of losing you. So in this lesson of loving you, I can only be an underachieving student.

How To Love You
5/5 The Plot

This story is really pulling my heartstrings. It’s both a love story but also quite sad, due to the affection being unrequited. At least that’s what we’re lead to believe.

I was really not expecting the end to be so uplifting, but it only goes to show that we change. As we grow, we may come to realize our loved ones happiness is more important than our own. I find that a beautiful message, especially in a world where everything is about “me, me, me”.

Our hearts broke alongside our male lead’s heart.

5/5 Characters

I do find our female lead to be pretty and our main male lead to be pretty decent. He respected her wishes and never once forced himself on her.  Yet, I suppose he wasn’t clear in his affections to her. It seems that when one door closes, another one opens. 

Unless we dare to take hold of our affection for someone, we might end up losing them in the process. Our female character Qiao Shan is very adorable and pretty. She starts out shy and develops into a more confident woman. I think the fact she had good friends such as Da Ye/Li An Yang, our male protagonist, helped quite a bit.

Da Ye seemed to be the typical guy but he was always looking out for Da Ye. It’s clear for us looking into the story that he loves her, yet I guess she couldn’t believe he would actually fall in love with her.

4/5 Art

The art is pretty decent and I like how we see the characters develop over 10 years. Now, the art may not be super flashy but I liked how the characters are drawn and how we can see they’re growing older.

14/15 – Almost perfection

I really liked this story. It was heart-warming, beautiful, sad and it opened for new beginnings. I highly recommend you check this one out. It’s well-worth it, especially if you like unrequited love.
