For those of you that do not know what a love interests is or are taking this the wrong way. In entertainment and creative writing a love interest is a romantic subplot its not a full on relationship. Its just someone a character finds interest in. A simple crush. It can be the thing that motivates the character to do something good or bad.
Do you think Clem should have a love interest?
If so what would he be like?
Kids can have crushes to before you start arguing. If you don't have a soul then haven't you watched "the wonder years"?
Edit: And no a love interest does not have to be sexual. As a kid it can be just someone you really like. Like a crush.
