I really, really enjoy roleplaying. It’s one of the biggest ways that I enjoy a game. I like coming up with elaborate character backstories and living the lives of these people, which invariably turns into some combination of mundane drama spiced up with the supernatural. Yes, my main character in Final Fantasy XIV is an assassin with magical knowledge who had her entire body reconstructed at one point, but a good portion of her life is still having tea and enjoying a night out with friends and family.
But not everyone roleplays, and even those of us who do sometimes find something holding us back (lack of available partners, for example). So what keeps you from roleplaying? Is it a lack of desire, a complex schedule of availability, fear, or something else altogether?
