    No Love for Straight Women

    I can't recognize this problem. I play a straight midlander, and her relationship has happened organically without me even putting thought as to specifically looking for romance for her. She has had multiple people, even women, advance on her over time - and of course, because she's a healer, she gets a lot of the "Ohi sexy nurse rawrrrrr " comments. I have to assume that the people making them are either straight or bisexual/other sexuality that makes them consider a straight woman as a potential. As others have suggested, I think there's more to it and uh, I don't know, maybe don't focus on it too much? Just like with popularity, the illuminati and "Oh my god EVERYONE has my hairstyle all of a sudden???", you will see a lot more of the things you are focusing on. I know some like to have romance as a central focus-point for their characters but yeah, I just don't think that's entirely healthy. If anything I've noticed that people turn on their heels and run as soon as someone mentions they're specifically looking for romance for their character, because it can be a bit of a red flag that warns of potential IC/OOC bleeding down the line, or at least it would be much more risky than in other areas of roleplay. Two gil in a box.

    Balmung RP, is it dying? Has it changed?

    I just don't think it's reasonable to whip up an atmosphere that there is a "trend" on the go, for the whole server, based on one own's individual experiences. You mention you're not good at finding new groups, so that must be what plays in more-so than a big server with 800+ roleplayers clamming themselves up in cliques and refusing to be open and welcoming of new players? I'm not saying that your experiences aren't what they are, but I just don't think it's a trend, or in any way a sign that Balmung is keeling over. If I were you I'd; - Browse the available listings in the FC/LS halls here on the site, tumblr and also in-game by inspecting any FC that ends in -RP. The Quicksand, even though it's questionable for RP at times, is a great place to find RP FC's because people just stand around like silent advertising beams. - Take contact to any/all that you find interesting, invite yourself to some RP and see what you think. You wont get anywhere if you're not proactive, and this process takes time. People can't invite you into plots that go beyond slice-and-life if they don't know who you are, and there's plenty of that to be found. Actually, on that note right now, there's a big open plotline/storyarch called "The Faceless" going on which seems to be something people can readily jump into. I've already assisted in getting people involved just by facilitating a place for players to meet each other. - Consider creating a "Looking For Connections" post, both here and on tumblr if you have that - Participate/show up to public events, if you don't like tavern events then wait for the one-off-events or consider the fighting tournaments (even as a spectator). There are also some initiatives that pop up now and again which deliberately tries to pair people off for roleplay. But don't sit down and wait for things to come to you. I have never seen a roleplay community, in ffxiv or other games, where waiting for things to happen is a strategy that pays off. I can understand feeling reluctant, but making all of these assumptions is only going to make it all the more difficult for you to find what you want to find.
