Okay, but what if Merle from TWD had a s/o who was way younger than him (over 18 of course) and people are all confused to why she would want to be with him, but he has a inner sweetness. Like maybe everyone's siting around a campfire eating and Merle takes half of his food and scrapes it onto her plate and people are like wtf? Why is Merle sharing? I think his s/o would smile. He wouldn't return it in front of the others. But later he would tell her "can't have my girl wastin away"
