Then you fell for the narrative tricks ND did. You make Ellie do certain things when you play as her. Now compare to what you do as Abby when you played as her. It comes across very one sided. ND wants you to like her despite her past.
(was this vague enough not to do a spoiler tag? I hope so)
Just compare how you treat the dogs between both narratives. Subtle but they tried.
Well at least the lesbian love scenes are much better than the "hetero" scene.
