Help me understand Steffy (General Discussion)

You know I’m not a fan of this character, but I’m really trying to figure out what the writers are saying. It makes me cringe to watch her listen to Liam plead with Hope. Is that really OK for a contemporary, beautiful, rich business woman? Why does the show write Steffy as if she’s Liam second choice after Hope throws him away? I stopped rooting for Lope after Italian fiasco. Never rooted for Steam. Now, I hate all the couplings, but what I dislike more is watching a woman so desperate for a man. Why are they painting Steffy as so desperate?

Steffy is a much more interesting character when she's a bad girl. IMO, they dulled her character down in order to pair her up with Liam. She was a bad a$$, edgy, take no prisoners type of character before she met him. The kind of character that viewers loved to hate. Scheming, manipulating, blackmailing, man stealing. You name it. Then suddenly she was married and watching Bob Hope movies.

And recently it's been even worse. For the last year or so she's done nothing but fold laundry and listen in on the baby monitor. Literally. That's been her story.

Good Steffy is boring. This show needs bad Steffy.

I never saw what made this character strong.
Steffy has always been weak, riddled with with insecurities and fear of abandonment.
All of her efforts to be agressive and go after what she wants was just a way to disguise it.
This girl had an epic meltdown because Ridge left Taylor at the altar and went back to Brooke.
She was begging like a child for Ridge to stay with them. I see nothing strong about that.
Hope didn’t cry when Ridge or Nick left her mom and she was way younger than Steffy.

That being said, she was less boring then.
