This game is a super duper toolkit, which means that the advice here and there are namely about two things, helping you hit your stride.
Presuming your britishness hasn't gotten in the way of your other roleplaying, there are two problems.
A> Playing a different gender then yourself.
B> Playing romantic situations with others.
Because the game is a super duper toolkit, there are some options to avoid A> (Butlers, come to mind) and some options to avoid B> (put the focus on something else except the true love scenario that the book recommends at time.)
The Game is ridiculsy easy to drift over to whatever style of play you want that revolves arround a strong (or not so strong) authority figure and just as strong subordinates. Chances are I think B> is actually the problem, but is also the source of many lolz in the game, so I hope it works out for you.
