I'm at a point in my WIR where it'd be useful for my male main character to find out more about my female main character and to show his feelings towards her developing (whether he realizes it or not). Theoretically he only wants to know from professional interest, but as his informant goes on he gets more info of a personal nature. Nothing intimate, just college-years scuttlebutt on who she used to date and what the former boyfriends were like. The fact that my MMC keeps listening is intended as a clue that he's getting more romantically interested in her, as is the fact that he feels twinges of jealousy, concern, etc., hearing about the previous guys. Something tells me it's not the most honorable thing my MCC could do, and he's a guy who prides himself on his honor. But that shouldn't stop me from having him do it, I don't think . . . We all have blind spots and little hypocrisies and I don't want to paint him as perfect. But--! But--! do guys ever talk about girls like this? Does it make a difference that one of the old boyfriends is the kind of off-the-wall guy anyone would tell stories about, and the other one is a little weird, too?
