Neither am I, honestly . As I said before, it just feels far too awkward to be romancing any of the Gods as the Bearer in their current form. In a past life, I wouldn’t have as many qualms about it, but not as the current Bearer themselves. I’d sooner have preferred to hear that Psyche was a available romance now; at least in her case, it doesn’t feel so odd and it feels like something far more plausible than the Bearer (in their current form) entering a relationship with one of the Gods.
You know, to be perfectly honest, I get the feelings that most of the ROs do experience a small bit of attraction toward the Bearer when first meeting them. A tiny seed of interest in that only really gets nurtured when the Bearer shows a form of interest in them as well and they get a chance to really know what the Bearer is like, yet also a attraction that simply blows off after a while if the Bearer doesn’t seem interested in them that way.
Heck, as crazy as this may sound (and you are all free to call me crazy for saying this), I think even Sage had a momentary interest in the Bearer when she first meets them in her new intro (when she wasn’t aware of who they were). Her actions didn’t really come off as hostile; intense and blunt with a hint of suspicion for sure (I can see why people may have been a little too scared to ask her out in the past ), but it felt like she was more curious about the new Demigod before her than anything else. And when the Bearer chooses to be charming with her, she starts playing with her hair a bit while continuing the more friendly turn in the conversation; some people with long hair tend to play with when getting a little shy/nervous (sometimes even when they’re being a little flirty, if a good deal of eye contact is made with the other person while they’re doing the action). I fully believe her when she said to the Bearer that she she did enjoy meeting them and think she would’ve genuinely have continued to have a conversation with them (or attempted to one if the Bearer wasn’t as keen on talking with her) had Hermes not come along.
I have to say, Calypso and Sage seem to have been given some new interesting moments. For Sage, we actually get a chance to meet her when she’s at her friendliest with the Bearer, a nice littler tease for what a bond with the girl could be like before the inevitable rage we will be confronted with the day after. For Calypso, we now have Athena arranging this daughter of Ares to give the Bearer chance to use this to have some type of footing against Ares (something Evander is certainly not going to be doing; if he’s going to interact with the girl, it’s going to be for more genuine reasons) and @Rohie has stated that Calypso will likely display a stronger reluctance to admit that she has feelings for the Bearer until her relationship reaches a certain point (well, that she’ll be pretty stubborn about it for a while).
