I NEED A MAN GUYS.

I haven't roleplayed a relationship since V4, and I've decided that my next character is going to be pretty gay, so I'm looking for potential boyfriend material. Actual boyfriend with thread(s) 'n' stuff, not just 'these two are dating but never actually bump into each other'.

I'm still in the initial stages of concept so you will have to bear with me, but the alpha version is that he's a pretty emotional and affectionate guy who wants to be a chef, but also has some self-esteem and negative thought pattern issues.

If you think you'd be interested in something like this as a starting point, do drop me a shout here or by PM or whichever.

Hey there, Slam! I'm tumbling through some of the relationship threads and thought I'd stop by here; I can see possibly relationships between our characters. Hear me out and see what you think ^.^

Nate: Both of my kids would know Nate XD

In terms of Lani, she'd most notably know him through classes (because they're in the same grade) and through swim team. Lani would be able to sympathise and empathise with Nate on his feelings of anxiety and insecurities, for Lani was initially outcast by her pairs because she wasn't exactly like they were. I feel like this has the potential to pull the pair close, and his clinginess wouldn't deter him from her, she'd read it as Nate allowing himself to show his vulnerability. I reckon there's potential here.

As for Juniper, her and Nate share a mutual interest in theatre. She's a friendly and relatively kind soul, and I don't see her disliking Nate. Juniper herself can have quite a clingy nature, so his clinginess wouldn't irritate her.

Vanessa: Lani probably wouldn't know Vanessa, unless she ran into her at a party (which Lani doesn't really frequent because of her experiences with alcohol), so even then, it mightn't be very well. Lani might get irritated by her entitled nature, and may even be jealous of her ability to hold a less than positive reputation but still mesh well with others. I think there could be a neutral acknowledgement here, or dislike if Vanessa's disposition would generally oppose Lani's.

I don't think there's much interaction going on between Vanessa and Juniper. Might she purchase body cosmetics from the store that Juniper works at? Aside from that...they're in the same grade.

Howdy, Corey.

Had a looky over Lani and Juniper. I agree that Nate would know Lani and Juniper through mutual interests, and I see no reason they couldn't be buddy buddies with each other.

Vanessa would probably not find Lani that interesting, and Juniper's personality quirks might actually make Vanessa think she's too much of an oddball to like her. So indifference towards the former and being put off by the latter is the vibe I'm getting.

These are just surface reactions based off your tl;dr friendship thread summaries mind, so I might be missing some of the finer details.

I think those sound great as you've described them in all honesty (I'm also hunting for more people put off by Juniper).

Yay, more friends! :D

Hi Slam! I'm just going through the relationship threads, to see who my kids might be friends/enemies/lovers/something else with!
I think that Jane would probably encounter Vanessa a lot at parties, and they could possibly know each other from that. I think that Candice would know Nate from theater, although Candice may talk incessantly about the Kardashians.
here's my v7 planning thread or whatever

I concur that Jane and Vanessa could've crossed paths at parties, though I don't think they really have much in common outside of that, and their shared desire for everything to go their way may lead to actually not getting along. Hard to say right now, really. I agree that Nate and Candice would know each other from theatre, though Nate knows jack all about the Kardashians and would most likely politely smile and nod.

IN THE MEANTIME I feel like I need someone to actively pick on Nate soon. Everyone's so damn polite and friendly with him in his threads so far.

AlvaroI see Alvaro and Nate being pretty good friends! Their interests line up fairly well; both are in the soccer team, they both like to cook, and they both have anxiety disorders that Alvaro can emphasise with! My biggest question is if he'd be part of Alvaro's cafe crowd, but I see them being pretty good friends even if he doesn't go there!I don't see anything that'd correlate Alvaro and Vanessa; none of their interests line up and she wouldn't be someone that'd trigger him.
JeremyI could see a one-sided dislike of Jeremy on Nate's part. Jeremy could have made fun of Nate's height at some point as a joke which could lead to stuff!They're both gamers who are super into music so they correlate fairly well with each other. He'd be likely to catch onto Vanessa's self-centeredness pretty quick and he'd be okay with riding the backseat if he needed to.
BenNate's in the drama club and he doesn't seem to be gay or a bully so I think they correlate fairly well! Ben's also a pretty cool/calm guy who doesn't like bullies so I think he'd be a pretty good friend/influence outside of the club?Same here for the most part. They don't do the same sport but the sports are super similar and games are held at the same place so they could have interacted when games intersected and then became friends at school?

Yugi I didn't forget to reply to you I swear.

Alvaro and Nate can certainly be buds! He probably doesn't have much time to be a café regular, but everything else sounds kosher. Vanessa and Alvaro have little reason to know each other, I agree.

Nate is happy to dislike Jeremy if he takes the piss out of his height, you bastard. Vanessa is cool with Jeremy's mutual interests if he's willing to let her take the spotlight.

Nate is happy to be friends with someone who doesn't like bullies like Ben. Vanessa and Ben could totally have bumped into each other over ball a few times.


And now that we have a new character, it's time to request new friends!

Sandy Bricks
Keep in mind that, as Sandy is in the critique phase, elements are still subject to change.

So Sandy's a fairly to-himself kind of guy who's big on art, but he still wants to connect with other people and has sporadic attendance of the art, newspaper and yearbook clubs. Would like to find some people for him to be buds who can deal with his low moods with, but any ideas for relationships are always appreciated. He's also into dudes, so if you're a dude who is also into dudes then perhaps there's some spark there when he's up for being around other people. Go forth and suggest stuff~

Hey, I noticed that Nate and Noah might know each other from Drama Club. Sandy and Nadia might also get along due to their shared interest in photography.

Greetings, good Slam.

As far as I can see, Sandy and Maxim would probably go along rather well, as you might know since you critiqued him. Both are rather introverted, but try to socialize with people, at least occasionally. They also seem to have quite similiar childhoods, at least in some regards, as well as a shared fondness for fiction/reading. I could see them sort of connecting over their reclusive natures, as well as Maxim being drawn to people who are somewhat similiar to himself.

He would also have an understanding for Sandy's occasional "low moods", as you put it, since he tends to be in similiar moods himself.

Lastly, even though Maxim hasn't outed himself as gay yet and probably has no knowledge of Sandy being homosexual either, I could see this shared aspect of their characters leading to an interesting dynamic.

Hello frands.

Nate and Noah should definitely know each other from drama club. Depending on whether or not Nate's familiar with Noah's drag act (I haven't read in the profile in a while, you'll have to forgive me) he may find it a bit odd and perhaps a tad confusing, but the guy's not that judgemental. I also agree that Nadia and Sandy could get along relatively well, if being introduced through the photography then leads to a general amicability.

I must admit Maxim and Sandy doesn't immediately jump off the page at me as a dynamic duo; if anything their lack of shared interests and mutually reserved nature makes me think they wouldn't have much reason to strike up a huge conversation. That said, there's no reason that it has to be completely off the table, and perhaps if the two interacted we might see something more apparent. Hard to say at this stage.

(Damn I am late to all of this...)

Seems me like Maria and Nate would be friends. Both of them are cooking enthusiasts, and whilst she's no sportswoman, she can keep pace. Considering she's Italian, she's probably gonna be more catholic leaning, buuuuut whatever.
Let them be friends!

Oh, and Maria and Vanessa should be party bros. (Bro-ettes?)
