i like how when people say “i love couples with size difference” they mean tiny girls with waists so thin the large men they are dating can put their entire hand around them and by love i mean where the FUCK are my tiny vain princes and their huge muscular knight women who don’t put up with any of their shit and hoist them over their shoulders and walk off when they’re having a princely temper tantrum your all WEAK
also something that’s been bothering me for a while
It’s okay to date someone that you don’t love, or don’t think you’ll ever love. It’s okay to date someone and have absolutely no intentions of marrying them ever. It’s okay to have a relationship with someone that’s not serious.
All of these things are fine as long as everyone in the relationship understands these things and is fine with them.
I keep seeing all these fics where the main character’s love interest is dating someone (usually the situation is a guy dating a girl) and the girl is portrayed as being a terrible awful person for not “really loving” him or “being serious” about the relationship which strikes me as ridiculous considering most of these characters are college age or younger!
(It’s also worth noting that guys who are serial daters in canon are usually excused for this behavior in fic; he just went from girl to girl because those girls weren’t just as “special” as MC.)
Conversely, you don’t have to have never loved anyone before in order for your relationship to be valid. You see a lot of fics where the OTP disavow all their previous relationships, which are sometimes written as totally dysfunctional just in case we forget who we’re supposed to be rooting for.
