Yesterday's post regarding what we'd do if Transformers were real prompted a few people who mentioned pairing with one. It's a very thought provoking subject that brings up many what ifs. So, let's look at this from a very realistic standpoint here. Assume a relationship is desired enough to take some risks and strong feelings are shared between you and a TF. Now the dilemma: If you actually go through with a relationship you'd likely always be in danger. Your TF would want to keep you as far away from this danger as possible. I imagine you wouldn't be fighting alongside them much, if at all since they care about you. You'd feel so much anxiety waiting for your TF to return from battle not knowing if he/she is still alive or hurt. We know how hard they fight. What about our short lives? Chances are if human/robot relations become common they'll seek ways to prolong longevity. They may turn us into robots like them. Would you be okay with that? Both sides would quickly learn of your relationship. You could be captured by the enemy. If you choose an Autobot, the Decepticons would probably target you to lure the Autobots in. If you're captured, they may torture you or just kill you to get even. Your Autobot may not reach you in time or even find you. If you choose a Decepticon, you'd worry about the Autobots finding you. You may have to fight alongside your Decepticon never knowing if it will be your last battle. So much turmoil involved. So, if you knew all of this up front would you still consider it or would you walk away? Would it be worth the risk? Just a thought.
