Hey :) Do you have many friends that don't really understand what RPing is? I really want to start but either my friends aren't into the same fandoms as I am or they just don't like something enough to get that involved. So because of that when I try to explain what this is they just kind of give me an odd look hah :') I'm feeling a bit self conscious about trying it out because of that :/ Would love to hear your experience on this please?
(( OOC: I do understand how you feel, as I had similar reservations when first starting to rp online. I’ve never told my friends about this blog, but it was less to do with feeling self-conscious and more that they honestly wouldn’t be interested, and I quite like having this little corner of the internet to myself.
However, I would definitely advise that if rp-ing is something you want to start doing, do it! And if you feel self-conscious about sharing it with your friends (which you shouldn’t do, but I do understand why you might) then you don’t necessarily have to tell them.
I can guarantee that if you do start rp-ing, you will make plenty of new friends who will share similar interests to you. Never let the opinions of other people prevent you from trying something new or doing something you enjoy. You will be much happier for it, I promise. ))
