This sums up my own thoughts almost perfectly. As an M, and more specifically a purely straight M, I'm perfectly fine playing either an M or an F, but I'm considerably more interested in experimenting with MF or FF relationships than I am with FM options.
Romances with unstable bad boys like Mesphit don't interest me in the least. I didn't care for Amukiki's hyper-competitive desire to prove his Alphaness either. My gal didn't have a phallis and thus wasn't the least bit interested in finding out whose was bigger. The only FM romance I enjoyed fully playing out in Loren was the one with Rae, and that was because I very quickly recognized that his shield of arrogance stemmed from fear, a fear that if he were to give his heart away it would get cut to pieces. Over time Rei demonstrated his feelings towards my elven gal in ways that were both fun and useful when words got him into trouble. So I was able to warm up to him. And once he grew relaxed enough to let go of his fears, his arrogant act disappeared, making for a quality relationship all around.
Since Draco and Riley of SOTW have been mentioned as well, I'll say that I'd probably have gone for Riley had he been a FM option for Althea, but Draco was too much of an irresponsible child. As Elenor I wanted to mother him, not romance him.
Thus I suspect that men when they play as women often look at male romance prospects differently than women do when they play women. Inversely, I suspect that women who play men often look at female romance prospects differently than men who play men. And this explains why FM isn't very popular among men and MF isn't very popular among women. Those romances are usually written with the other sex's perspective in mind, and if you're straight tend to cause you to switch your identification from the protagonist to the love interest for the romance.
I have nothing against any of the other nontraditional relationship types presented in the poll, and I consider diversity a good thing overall, but it is highly unlikely that I will play them. I'm wired the way I'm wired and I have no motivation to try anything that doesn't align with my wiring.

i agree from the poll i see that G x G is quite popular i don't mind it either but i'm happy that the straight B x G is the second most popular
the thing is i play as a male and i only care for girls so it pains me to see that i can't romance with some like (chassala in SOTW - karen in loren - lafleur in PS) it's okay in some games cuz u have more to choose from but not in SOTW for example cuz if u r a male the only girl available is grimme
but i'm not really complainig i'm just saying my point of view and i saw the romance graph in both loren2 and PS2 and they r both perfect
i just hope the DLC of PSCD comes out already
