She doesn't tell Peter she got fired and then gets all upset when she claims he doesn't understand how she feels.

You've used this as damning evidence of how awful MJ was before.Having watched the film again recently,I can't see this "hateful jealous" look you describe.Disappointed,frustrated,dejected-OK."Hateful"? I'm guessing you haven't seen the film since the theater,and if that's the case,you ought to at least check out the scene again.

Again,as I said before MJ was testing her feelings for JJ against her kiss with SPIDER-MAN-NOT PETER.It's not like she was dating/semi-engaged to Peter like they were in SM 3.How you can not see a difference is beyond me,but far be it from me to try continually to convince you.

Instead of just telling Peter what Harry is doing she breaks Peter's heart instead. What's even worse is that Harry can still try and kill Peter after this anyway.

She kisses Harry when she's with Peter. She's finally with the guy she's supposed to love and she still ends up kissing another guy anyway.

Again,it's more a story contrivance.Not a particularly effective one to be sure,but it's not beyond the realm of plausibility that she believed she was protecting Peter.There should've been a scene to cement that fact.

She ends up kissing Harry due to a little thing called "drama" that writers like to introduce into stories every so often.
