The basic story problem seems to be how to justify what the female lead does -- he's a directionless slacker and she's got a career, fiance, and lives by the rules.

Exactly. As a woman who fits into this category, all a man like that would be good for is sex.

The writer does not seem to know his or her characters, and that's a bad sign. He or she might stick to writing a plot-driven story (ie: events push them together rather than them being drawn to each other). Character-driven stories require an intimate knowledge of the psyche of individuals and how they work, which is harder than using events to lead to romance.

Literature adds to reality, it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives have already become. CS Lewis.
