However until this happens, Kogorou is single and can date any woman he wants, and like I said it is none of Ran's business. This is a yet another reason why I don't like her - she even isn't in a formal relationship with Shinichi, but she keeps calling him or asks for explanations as if she were his wife. She really should start to look at men a little bit differently... Same for Kogorou, he isn't even in a formal relationship with Eri anymore, so is there a single reason why shouldn't he date other women? I don't think so...
Anyway, I should stop now, or Kor again will be mad =P.
Ok, I will stop too, will just give the last explanation. I try to be an "idealist" in romantic stories, so if Eri and Kogoro are destined to reunite by the author, it's better imo if Kogoro stays faithful to the former love that will also be his future one. If he has relationship with somebody else now, the "forever faithful" ideal will be screwed in this case. I am a sucker for romantic books/ childhood sweetheart stories, have browsed through many, and you can't imagine how many ones I have discarded because of characters not being faithful to each other during conflicts or separation. It's not like they "have no right", they do, but this kills the "touching" element in romance imo. It's not so innocent anymore after that.
Please, let's talk through PM about this if you're interested. If not, it's ok too
As for Ran acting like she were Shinichi's wife and being "obsessed" with him, maybe it's kind of grotesque sometimes, but they have grown up together, have already become almost inseparable parts of each other's lives. It's not easy to just cut off from your life somebody with whom you have been together forever and on good terms, whether the relationship is romantic or not
