I love the character Ollie McBride. Yes, her main storyline in Love For Dunces is she wants to meet her soulmate, but on this journey she rises to her greatness.
She doesn't realize she is as strong as she is. She's always looking for support. But when her back is against the wall, her job is on the line, and her favorite band is in jeopardy of having their concert date cancelled she rises to the challange all on her own. Sure, she's looking for love in all the wrong places, but in the end she is the underdog turned heroine that saves the people she loves.
