Any good romance story that doesn't cater to forgiving females for doing whatever the fuck they want?

Just read Dance of a Lifetime, Paul's Redemption, and a few others where it's ALWAYS the guys that have to forgive his gf's promiscuity and beg for the girl to get back together. Kinda tired of that. Any romance stories with the roles reserved? It's kinda stupid where the girls cheats, betrays the guy AND THEN the author writes a story as if it's the guy's fault and the guy BEGS her back. like wtf, especially after the main FA does that a second time...

Also, I'm looking to read time travel or do-overs where the main character isn't a pathetic social wreck but just a normal person who isn't smart or dumb or too sex-craved (ie I hate harems). There's just so many do-overs where the guy travels back and have to live a promiscuous or male slut life. I swear it's like a formula for these do-over stories to include high school male slut phase.

If you accept a temporary period of, er, high school sexual activity, there are a few good ones where the character settles down around the end of high school: A New Past by Charlie Foxtrot, A Fresh Start by rlfj, and Doing it All Over by Al Steiner.

Once More With Feelings by Night Hawk -- the do-over protagnist is definitely not a male slut! Remix by Detroitmechworks is probably in the same subgenre.

A Fresh Start was my first do-over reading and I thought it was fine to when he slept around in high school since I sorta understood the protag's mentality of "oh shit, I get to be young and can sleep with as many young babes as possible." However, it was pretty stupid to sleep around and possibly fuck up his 'possible future' with his destined wife. That made me think of his male slut phase was really fucking dumb when he knew his actions were potentially dangerous.

Then, I read A New Past and was quite disappointed in this story too. I mean, the guy was picked his gf, and then starts fucking around with her sisters because of libido. Then, add in the whole premise and focus was him trying to change the world with technology made the slut-phase completely unnecessary. The story didn't focus on the psychology or the romance of sex, so including the male slut phase was just pointless.

I really liked Doing it All Over. Didn't add in slut phase for no reason. This story had a clear focus and didn't cater to the popular/generic formula.

Also, Building A Better Past was done really well for including the male slutty activity. This story actually explained the dilemmas, complications, and consequences of sleeping around with as many girls as possible! For once, it actually fits with the theme of the do-over and time travel dilemmas.

Once More With Feelings seems interesting. I'll try that one out. Remix is too short and the premise seems boring.

Do not dismiss "Remix" - it really "have it" - something that could force you to read it till the end.
I'm not saying it's perfect, because it has some flaws, but it's worth of reading.

Thuantang, in the early days, many authors included the 'slut phase' because it was felt (though it wasn't true) that SOL was a "sex site". Thus many stories included harem/sleeping-around scenes for no particular reason to the plot. That happens more rarely now, though it's still a component of many stories (since, again, many seek out SOL looking for a 'sex story' site), but dislike posting on ASSTR.
