Meet Cute or Meet Ugly?

Friday February 27, 2015

I saw a post on tumblr the other day saying that instead of meet cutes, there should be more meet uglies: I accidently hit you with my car. I left an angry note because your parking was bad. I slammed the door in your face or knocked you over and didn't apologise. The idea has stuck with me since I read it. Are meet cutes overdone? Would readers prefer meet uglies? I for one think the latter might provide a new element of entertainment and tension. What do you think?
