Collected here are dating sims with the courage - and moreover the - to shatter all barriers with the power of pure love (and raging hormones).

And when it comes to, shall we say, couples, no one tops the open-minded pairings found in dating sims.

Jumping race or social castes is just the beginning; no line is too sacred for these poignant tales of romance.

That just says you don't even remotely give a shit.2.

Either commit to text flirting or don't do it at all.

The game is "a heart-felt blend of bomb-defusing action and death-defying romance" with puzzles to solve and people to date, all very typical of the genre. In his stead, Sweet Fuse has a stable of hunky dudes to fill the game designer's shoes, including fighting game champ Kouta Meoshi and Ryuusei Mitarashi, male gigolo.

Then you hit this line, "Saki Inafune, niece to legendary game developer Keiji Inafune, cant wait to visit her uncles new theme park." Wait, hold on, hold the phone, is this Mega-Man-and-Resident-Evil Keiji Inafune? Bomb defusing-antics are what await as you travel the park searching for your uncle and trying to rescue the other captured attendants.Look, a little bit of gamesmanship in dating is fun. Maybe you've been guilty of behaving this way, or maybe you've been on the receiving end of it. It's understandable that you want to play it cool when you first start chatting.In any case, I feel like we can all take a lesson in dialing back the game playing a little. I for one would be a little wary if my texts were replied to instantaneously, right from the get-go.I personally am a fan of a little text flirting, but I know it's not to everyone's taste.The problem, though, is when the person you are chatting with sends one flirty message and then immediately follows it up with the text equivalent of a police dispatch.If you're going to go on a date with someone, just give that person your full attention for the duration of that date. And who knows, you might even find out you're attracted to him or her.4.
