How about a friendly tip? Aside from the obvious “don’t be desperate for fictional romance”, don’t try to change someone else’s character, especially when they put in so much thought into making them the way they are.
PEople do that?
Yes they do.
People also go “You’re character is (insert sexuality here, be it gay or bi or pan or whatever)? MY CHARACTER CAN MAKE YOURS FALL IN LOVE WITH HIM/HER/OTHER GENDER EVEN THOUGH THEY SHOULDN’T BE ANYWAY!”
And then I grin because that means that it is on like Dixie Kong. “O Rly? Show me.” They will never show you. What will happen is that after a few months, they realize that when you said your character’s sexuality is X, you mean it. Thus begins a period in time when you start to grin and will not stop for the rest of the year.
i hate when you’re not in the same mood as your friend like when you want to slay your enemies and feast on their flesh and your friend wants to dance in a field of daisies and sing for the sake of singing like no stop that grab a pitchfork
