I'm confident my daughter can tie you down *noms popcorn*
*eats the popcorn in your hand*
Mmmm . . . it's more delicious because it came from the hand of a charming woman.
Damn, in front of me?
Guess you weren’t worth much after all~
*throws @Wobbly away*
Better disinfect your hands, mum~ Something dirty touched you!
I think she already has a husband if she has a daughter so it's just a waste if you flirt with her
ain't working on me, darling. *pats you* Now, I shall go back to sleep
..husband? I have a father?!?!
wait @Msmarl do you have a husband?
Wait wait wait
@Stopitgetaway come back, I was just trying to compliment your mother so she doesn't hate me . . . I would never want you to be conflicted when it came to your own decision versus the decisions of your family. If I earn their affection, all the smoother sailing from thereon, right? Darling, come back.
Darling? Didn’t I just throw you away? Tsk tsk, you sure are ungrateful for the chance I gave you, @Wobbly
It's a misunderstanding! I just wanted to get to know your family! If I wanted to know know more about you, I'd have to ask the people closest to you, right? Everything I do is for you, darling.
@Chilling Mist I know you like this stuff, come say something
Hook line and sinker~
Heh, I guess I *did* have the ability to tie you down~
You’re good with words *cough* a huge liar- but baiting your kind is easy~
@Kalto , you twinkling star in the sky, we meet once again.
Of course we do, I am everywhere and nowhere, I see lots of things, for I am a lurker
*sigh* I change my mind, he is a lost cause... Don’t want him anymore
Since it’s 5am, I’ll go back to my own profile now~
Oh my . . . you mean to tell me you've been watching me? I'm flattered, the feeling is mutual.
@Stopitgetaway Darling, come back. I was only greeting a friend I haven't seen in a while. We have mutual friendly feelings towards each other, just like any other ordinary pair of friends. My affections for you have shifted none, and I only want you to pay more attention to me.
Mutual? I doubt that, for instance, you said you are blind and shoot arrows so you don't see who you are after, second I lurk and you chat, there is a difference
Our comradeship goes beyond physical differences, for we are connected through things more than that.
Uh huh, doesn’t sound very friendly if you ask me
I know he hates me so; I need your comfort. Will you hold me?
I told you that you live in fantasy, you need to come back to reality
I agree with Kalto on this one, what makes you think I’ll be comforting you after you flirted with others right in front of me?
I never flirted with others! I was just trying to ease into conversation with compliments. My hands are for holding yours, my eyes are for looking into yours, and my heart beats only for you.
Actually, I am not seeing why would someone ask someone else to hold them just because someone hates them (the logic behind this whole line puzzles me a little, I see stuff somewhat like this in drama and romance stories, and I keep asking myself, why? the characters using such cringy pick up lines and the characters falling for them, just puzzles me)
Can someone explain to me the logic behind this, please? this is really interesting in a sense but not in a romantic way as I see it (ー_ーゞ
Because when you're sad, you want to not feel sad. And one of the simplest and fastest way to not feel as sad is by being held by a loved one. Because when you are held by a loved one, which is equivalent to positive emotions, a little bit of your negative emotions get cancelled out.
A hug certainly feels good but I don't think it actually helps in such situations, especially in a similar situation where someone is trying to use it in their pick up (I mean they barely know each other), because the reason behind the hug here becomes a pretext and not the character here isn't actually aiming to sooth their pain but seeking to 'catch' a target,
But a hug can be 'proof' when it comes to affection. Just as much as words can declare emotion, so can actions.
That is why when I see stories using such stuff as romance it feels sort of idiotic to me, am I only one who feels like that when I see such stuff in novels or other adaptations?
Yeah but, how can you be sure about your emotions are real towards someone else just by that, I mean pretty much anyone can do a hug, so why should it be romance, best bros can hug, siblings can hug, people who had somesort of conflict can come to truce and hug each other
I really don't see, why a hug is used for romance? again, I agree, it helps in a certain sense but I really don't see why it is used in romance stories
Yes. But jokes aside, it can be corny because it IS overused. But if you were to apply real life to such situations I guarantee most will follow the stereotype because what else can be done? Even if there is something else, do you realistically think you can think of something in that specific moment?
Maybe, maybe not, I did some embarrassing stuff in the past after all, but I really just can't accept reading stuff like that in novels, it is like an alert or alarm starts in my head and repeatedly keeps warning "beware stupid characters, unnecessary drama ahead, leave now"
I can't help you with that. All I can say about those things is that once you read enough, you'll grow numb to it. I can't even count the number of stereotypes I've read. So many of them are cringey, to say the least, but I'm not bothered by them anymore.
I gave up most romance and drama novels/stories now, unless, they got a really interesting plot then any work categorized in romance or/and drama is a no for me
