'Kay, so, if I've understood correctly, to fall for someone, you have to really know them. More than that - they have to really know you. And, because you're naturally quite reserved - you've 'never felt the need to share any of [your] likes or dislikes' and you're 'quite easy to embarrass' - you've so far managed to avoid tripping headfirst into any romantic puddles. Heh, I kind of wish I was more like you... if I'd gotten to know some of my crushes really well *before* falling for them, I could've worked out how incompatible we actually were. Ah, well. You live and learn, or some other empty cliché that provides NO COMFORT and leaves me SOBBING OVER MY LAPTOP. *bzzzzt*

(Though I have to ask - what interests could you have that would be so embarrassing? Gaming = awesome, Pokémon = awesome, pizza = awesome, Voldemort = if not stereotypically awesome, really ***ing hot, especially as played by Joe Walker. I can't see why anyone would react with much other than 'OMG YOU LIKE PS3/POTTER/PIZZA/POKÉMON/THE LETTER P, APPARENTLY? ME TOO! SQUEEEEE!', and that could be the start of something beautiful. )
Hahaha, it's Gyarados (I made this account in 2005 when I was like 10 and spelled 'Gyarados' wrong (>.> lol). You can call me Ant, though. :]

I'm kinda the same way as Miss Buzz. I'm very introverted and find it difficult to try and relate to others and visa versa. I'm not a hermit or anything, but I'd just rather keep to myself to save from possible embarrassment. I'd rather have others tell me what they like first, and if we like the same thing or things, then I'll start opening up. I know the feeling, Buzzy. :[ Luckily, we both don't like any type of weird things, haha.

& yes, I agree that everything BB likes is seriously awesome! I'd really be interested in someone who liked all of those things. :p That would definitely be the start of something beautiful, lmao. xD

I just have to say, I love that about this game.

Are there any other games with such open sexuality?

Dragon Age: Origins has two bi characters (Zevran and Leliana), and all of the companions in 2 save for one are bi.
That's an interesting find, U_F & Phantom. After reading both your posts, something sparked in me to search for other games with LGBT characters, and my Google search led to this Wiki page. It's interesting to see that there are actually quite a large number of games with non-heterosexual characters or actions implemented within them.

Here are some popular ones that caught my eye:

  • Super Mario Bros. 2 for the NES. Birdo is referred to as a male who believes he is female and would rather be called "Birdetta." The character was the first transgender for Nintendo.
  • The Final Fantasy games seem to have a large number of LGBT characters and features.
  • Fable's 2008 sequel, Fable II retains its ability for players to choose their player character's sexuality. The game also includes more lesbian, gay, and bisexual NPC townspeople to court and marry.
  • Abu'l Nuquod, one of the assassination targets in the historically-based game released in 2007, Assassin's Creed, is strongly implied to be gay. He believes the people hate him because he is "different", is shown caressing the cheek of one of his male guards during his angry tirade, and claims that he cannot serve the cause of a god who calls him an abomination.
  • In the 2009 game Dragon Age: Origins. the player may choose a male or female character from the start of the game. The main character has an opportunity to have sexual encounters with one party member of the same sex.
  • In the 2012 adventure game, My Ex-Boyfriend the Space Tyrant, the majority of characters, including Tycho Minogue, the main character controlled by the player, are gay. (Although not necessarily popular, the game is apparently entirely gay-themed).
There are so many listed, and it's quite refreshing to see. :D

Welcome to all the new people, and sorry I haven't been around more. I try my hardest but life sucks sometimes in its ability to pull one away from one's computer, kicking and screaming
Come back soon! We all miss juuuuu. x)

this was followed by many OMMGGGGs on her part.

Unfortunately, she is dating someone (as I mentioned...some time ago), and even if she wasn't, I'm in a strange place right now as far as romance and relationships go, so it'd be bad of me to go out with her right now. I'd rather try and deal with my current romantic situation before dating anyone else, otherwise it'd probably be an emotional disaster.

But I did do it!
Ahhh, congrats! :3 At least you got your feelings out. It sucks she was joking, but nevertheless, you said she was in a relationship so she probably wasn't thinking about being with another person for the moment (although maybe in the future she will be available, haha :p).

What's your current romantic situation if you don't mind sharing? *hugs*
