Kate does not pine after men who hurt her family or who have no interest in her. To write her in any other way indicates that Tomlin and Co. do not understand the character or simply don't care. She has never been written worse than she has been under Tomlin's regime.

The character of Kate has had poor writing for her for eons.
As bad as the writing for Kate has been in the past, at least she was never written as being pathetic like she is now. That's one thing that Kate Roberts is NOT.
The fact that she has done pretty much nothing else for the past decade but interfere in her childrens' lives is not pathetic? Ok...
Even her romance with Roman was flawed because they chose to slide all of her crimes under the rug. All Kate is to every writer since Langan is a meddling mother and maybe once in awhile she gets tossed a romance bone but usually that doesn't last long. The writing for her has been pathetic before this regime and has been since JER left the first time pretty much. I will give Langan and Tomlin/Whitesell credit. They at least make it about more then just her doing this for her children. They make it personal for her too.
It's no coincidence, also, that the two times Kate has resorted to extreme measures like murder it's been under Whitesell's pen. He wrote in 2001 when she went vengeful psycho the first time and here he is writing now.
