I didn't have a problem with the romance category. I though this was about the romance of Nicole and Dick. And I think romantic (rather than realistic) is how I would label the construction of their relationship.
But I agree that this is the darker side of romance - when a relationship disintegrates along with the people involved. Of course Nicole seemed to get gradually stronger, but Dick was a mess.
