Romance of the week is a sucky concept - we've talked about it a lot already in this thread. I'm just not sure why Jadzia would fall in love with that boring guy so quickly, and also be willing to trap her symbiant in that sucky existence for the rest of its life.
I thought a way to salvage the episode would be to suggest that the Dax symbiont was tired of living and overpowered the will of Jadzia to go somewhere where it could eventually die. I mean, we never really know how the symbionts feel about living so long, maybe they have a 'curse of the immortals' thing going on.
