Is everyone in this story insane?
I mean, seriously: the MC is a deranged obsessive. The subject of his obsession either doesn't know what she wants or messes him about on purpose - who can say? His "friends" are happy to lie left right and centre even tho it is apparent that there is something seriously wrong. And the MC's antagonist went to threaten our deranged MC with a gun (which did not end well...).
