Excerpt: 

This game is designed for two players, called the Partners, and emulates the romance genre where two mismatched leads find themselves thrown together by fate; they butt heads to begin with, but then fall in love!

Meet Cute: to start the game, choose a sheet and answer some questions about them, incorporating those into a shared intro scene; once both Partners have introduced themselves, have their worlds collide!

Scenes: the rest of the game involves taking turns to be Lead; as Lead, you frame a scene using the prompts for your character; these scenes can be Duo, in which the Partners heavily interact, or Solo, which focuses on just the Lead. In a Solo scene, the other Partner plays the NPCs the Lead has to deal with and provides antagonism.
