    Post I've Decided to Become an Otome Game Writer

    I really didn't know where best to place this thread, so I hope that here is okay.

    I've been playing a lot of Otome games in the last year and while I'm having fun, I am also becoming a bit frustrated with being painted 90% of the time as a woman with 0% past experience with men, as well as the classic modest Japanese stereotype. The Yamato Nadeshiko.
    If I'm going to play one of these games, then I want to convey the personality I choose. So I've decided to make my own.

    Actually, I have three plots written down as to otome games that I would like to make.
    Here's the thing : I need YOUR (the community's) help.

    In what way can I gain help from you?
    Well, everyone has their own tastes in men that they like, right? I would normally avoid stereotypes, but being an otome game, women (or men) want what they want. There's no way around that.
    Still, I want to be able to cover many different women's preferences, while still creating an interesting character.
    I'm currently writing up a rough draft on the types of men that you might encounter, but I would love to hear your opinions on what kind of men I should include.
    I know that I have my own likes and dislikes, but that does not mean the story should be rendered to only my taste. I really want to write something with a route that everyone can enjoy.

    So, please tell me.

    (You may mention more than one)

    1 ) What type of personality/traits do you prefer in men?
    2 ) What physical appearance do you like in men?
    3 ) If you were playing an otome game, what kind of woman would you want to give a voice to (confidence and personality wise)?
    4 ) <Please mention anything else you think might be of help>

    As a little background, most games tend to have you assume the role of a woman in her mid 20s. This seems like a safe and flexible age.
    I will probably also set it in Japan. There are admittedly many Japanese women who eat up these kinds of games, so it would only make sense.

    Here are a few examples of the types of men you might consider :
    *The Younger Guy
    *The Older Guy
    *The Shota-esque Guy
    *The Tease
    *The Cool Guy
    *The Cold Guy
    *The Reticent Guy

    ....and for those of you wondering what an "otome" game is.... yeah. It's basically a visual novel-style game in which a woman wins a man's affection. So, the reverse of most visual novels, basically. Though they don't really follow a harem theme, and more of a route that you select.
    They can be subtle in their storytelling, or a little more.... revealing.
