in the social situation i am right now and my anxieties i would prefer rei over asuka because asuka would just tell me to stop being a bitch, instead of trying to understand and help and better myself.
if i was more successful in life i would probably prefer asuka. i like her character design a lot more and im into redheads anyway. plus she would have nothing to bitch about and i would be more self-confident,.. so she couldn't bring me down. instead i could be the helping hand she needs.
