For Bowser and Mario, I have a friend who's girlfriend is a lot bigger than her and she's constantly in fear of accidentally hurting my friend. Do you guys have that problem? Or to be more specific: Bowser- are you scared of accidentally hurting Mario? If so, Mario- how do you calm him down/reassure him that it's fine?
“Oh sure, I worry about that all the time. I worry about squishing him, if my arms are too big, if I’ll crush him if I roll in my sleep, if I’ll step on him with my big feet, and even if I’ll hurt him with my big mouth or nails. It’s a lot to think about constantly, so I try not to dwell on it. But, the longer that I date him, the more solutions we come up with, and the easier it is.”
“Most people mistake that bigger figures are usually more menacing. Bowser’s actually a lot more of a softie than he lets on.”
“Sure, of course not. Anyway, I can usually calm Bowser down about this stuff by reminding him that we take things slow. He’s got big lips, but if we start our kisses gently, then I won’t have my face in his mouth. We hold hands and watch where we step so we don’t step on one another. Though I wear gloves a lot of times, Bowser’s usually good at watching his claws, so scratching isn’t an issue. His big frame might be something to worry about when we sleep, but he can usually give me enough space when need be, or we make sure that we’re in a good position before we rest.”
“Picking him up is always fun, if you’re able to do it. It’s actually really cute to have him rest in my lap too! …Uh, you didn’t hear that from me!”
“It’s something different at first, but as long as the couple goes slow with their movements and they’re careful, there’s no reason to be afraid of one another. Just take it easy, and enjoy getting to know each other. And be thankful that your partner is likely not a spiky, fire-breathing turtle-dragon.”
“Hey! That’s…I mean, ok, valid, but come on!”
“Don’t worry, I still love you, and wouldn’t want you any other way.”
