Okay, shoot me. I’m a guy who REALLY likes his ships. And so does my partner. We RP great, he’s actually probably the best partner I ever had. And the sheer mass of things we’ve RP’d in the years we’ve known eachother is considerable.
I love him but he is just never interested in RPing the same thing as me anymore. Even things that he proposes, and I wasn’t into but I did for him. I eventually get into it, and he loses interest in the day and is on to the next thing.
I’ll be like, “Oh well x was really cute let’s do more of that…” which is inevitably replied to with “Ehh, not really feeling that one. Oh, but I had an idea for another RP…”
It’s frustrating because, I can’t make him do what I want to do. I know that . But meanwhile, every time he’s sick or tired or bummed out, I ask him “Which account should I get on?" and I do. When he’s got an itch for an RP, I always RP it. Because if I’m not in the mood for something at first, I will get into the mood for it.
But God forbid I wanna follow up on or even conclude that one RP we started and did for like 2 days, because 9 times out of 10 he’s not into it.
There are times, like on my birthday, or when I’m kinda in a mood that he’ll RP it with me. But I know when he’s not in the mood for it, he makes it pretty evident. 10 minute oneliners, non-productive responses, or he’ll go and launch a game under the guise of “Oh, I’ll tab out when I need to reply…”
I know this and yet, I always start whatever idea he has in his mind up, I fall in love with it, and I think “Ooooh. This is the one we’re gonna stick to.”
