    Are there visual graphic novels where you do not romance or get a BF/GF?

    I am working on a non-romanced visual graphics novel. A problem is that most stories revolve around getting laid OR getting a partner, followed by "happily ever after".

    What games can I look to for inspiration?

    Tomb Raider, she's always single, that way guys are more interested, if she got pregnant, fat and, spoken for, she'd drop off the radar . .

    You could make it about a detective, who solves cases, and is a bit broken, or wants to be alone . .

    You could make it about some hackers, or a gang, where there aren't many girls, like bank-robbers, something where they are on a mission, that requires focus, no time for romance, too important . .

    I was going to talk about Tomb Raider too, it's the most suitable for your research.
