While I found Faulkland to be funny in Act II, I found him to be completely unreasonable in Act III. He even acknowledges this: "to this one subject, whom I think I love beyond my life, I am ever ungenerously fretful and madly capricious! I am conscious of it - yet I cannot correct myself!"
Faulkland wants Julia to love him because she's been struck by the love god - not because of his character or his looks or because her father arranged the betrothal or because he saved her life. He is a complete pill, and I don't blame Julia for being mad and washing her hands of him. In fact, I'm wondering what she sees in him at all.
What was your reaction to him in this Act? What the heck is going on with him?
