I really hate it when people ship Gwen with Duncan in Total Drama Series just because they are similar.
In the show they may have had a lot in common and fun together, however they never showed any attributes of true love.
They were never supposed to hook up; but a network request from TV networks and immature fans made it canon for seasons 3 and 4, until the 5th season where Gwen discovered Duncan was a jerk.
This pairing was all a deception which was never true love.
The reason why Gwuncan (the shipping of Gwen and Duncan) was a fake love fantasy is because it was deceptive, inconsiderate, disloyal, shallow, and really rushed. If you watched the show, you would notice how the two of them jumped into relationship right away without thinking, did not see the deeper side of each other’s personalities or truly understand one another, didn’t give respect, and they only cared about what was in common and having fun.
Also, did anyone ever see how Duncan did not treat Gwen with kindness? He made fun of her friends, tricked her into doing certain things, and still had feelings for Courtney.
According to psychology, compatibility and love is not about what you have in common or having fun. Real love is about treating your partner with honesty, respect, trust, displaying deep feelings, accepting personalities, understanding each other, and is never rushed because real relationships take time to develop.
I tried to explain this to people many times, but it seems like they don’t understand what love is really about; or in another case, they appear to like fake love.
Why do people even like it, or post fanart of this fake love pairing?
