I find the ones about jealous rp partners really obnoxious and makes me just go “STOP BEING POSSESIVE LET YOUR FRIEND RP WITH WHO THEY WANT!” it isn’t like they are going to abandon you 5ever.
Yeah, but I call everyone I rp with an rp partner. Its just a blanket term for someone I rp with. So I disagree about it being a stupid concept. Also, some people are very uncomfortable rping with everyone they meet and prefer to rp with just one person. For them it is (or was, in some cases) fun. Who are you to tell people how to rp?
yo homeskillet you’re missin the point (I think)
which is “being possessive over RPers is rly dumb grow up”. semantics over the wording of the post aside, i think we can all agree on that notion.
*shrug* Possessiveness over an rp partner I feel is as natural as possessiveness over a friend or a romantic partner. This is someone you spend a lot of time with. Obviously it’s bad if you let it take over and make what you’re doing not fun anymore. But a little bit of it? Normal.
Hey… Try not to police how other people think or feel, okay? I get that you disagree with the drama associated with excessive possessiveness, but telling someone that they’re not allowed to feel one way or another is also bad.
Are we seriously trying to argue that it’s okay to feel possessive over someone who shares a hobby with you? It may be a natural reaction, but it’s not a good reaction and it shouldn’t be encouraged. We shouldn’t try to make people feel bad for calling it for what it is: bad behavior. You may feel naturally inclined towards possessiveness, but you don’t own anybody, and you certainly have no right to act out on it.
I agree with OP: it is tiring to see all these posts about people being possessive over their RP partners. You don’t own anyone, and they don’t owe that much to you.
I agree with OP, and while I understand what the person a few posts above was trying to say (that it’s like being jealous if a friend is always hanging out with someone else and not you I??? think???) you should definitely grow up. Your RP partner (just like an IRL friend or ANYONE ELSE YOU KNOW) can do whatever the hell they want.
What ace said ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
It is not okay. On ANY LEVEL. To be possessive of a friend. Even if it’s “”“”“”“”“”“”“”NORMAL”“”“”“”“”“”“”“”” it doesn’t fucking make it okay, JFC. In Nazi Germany it was normal to throw people alive into incinerators. DID THAT MAKE IT MORALLY OKAY?
The point is, when you feel possessive? That is your brain telling you that your friend somehow, some way, belongs to you. And your brain is telling you that you don’t want to share that friend with someone else. NOT. FUCKING. OKAY. Own your goddam suckiness, realize it’s on YOU and not your poor friend, AND GET THE HELL OVER IT AND GROW UP. You aren’t two anymore, it’s not cute.
OP is saying the concept BEHIND RP Partner and being creepy possessive is not okay (it isn’t) not the term itself is stupid.
