Yeah, that just happened to me. Out of the cast of small characters, the one whom the main character (we'll call her Jane) falls for is the most boring. That's my fault. I only created him (Jack) for that purpose. It's a dramedy and the theme of the story is about selfishness vs selflessness, altruism, helping others, helping yourself, blah, blah, blah. The thing about Jane is she takes it upon herself (rather unwittingly, at first) to "help" these other people (and in the process helps herself, who saw that one coming? Anyone? Anyone?) So each person has a little tic or issue that Jane helps them resolve...but this is really just the subtext of the story, the B plots. Like she helps one guy get over his pill-addiction. She helps one guy's marriage. She helps one girl control her temper. But what does she help Jack do? That's where I'm stuck. Jack is supposed to be the Jane-immediately-likes-him, wishes-to-start-wooing-him character. But he's got history with Jill (Jane's foil) and she gets caught up in a love triangle. I can't think of anything concrete that Jane could help Jack overcome. The only idea I had was maybe Jack has commitment issues and as his relationship with Jill develops, Jane (against her own feelings) helps him become more committed (perhaps proposing? and/or going through with the wedding? something along those lines). But I need something else. Jack is too Fred-from-Scooby-Doo right now. He needs depth. But not something too serious (see the 'medy' part of dramedy), I don't want him to be a secret-murderer or have been molested as a child or anything like that. What in the hell does he need help with?
