Romance is for Other People Tidbit #20 (Chris Character Profile)

Hello Everyone!  Here are the revised Romance is for Other People Tidbits!

Here is the twentieth tidbit:

20.  Chris Character Profile:  
Chris Howard is 14 years old.  He maintains a B+ average.  He has no siblings.  He is quiet and reserved.  He is loyal to his best friend Lydia.  He has a good relationship with his parents.  He would, however, avoid his cousin Jeremy at all costs; and struggles to stand up to him.  He played basketball until age 11.  He turned his attention to plays and acted in Music Man, Robin Hood and Romeo and Juliet with Lydia after age 11.  He does not have any close friends outside of Lydia but doesn’t care.  He likes things the way they are and does not want to upset the status quo.  He is compassionate towards others, though sometimes doesn’t know how to respond.  He is not a fan of romantic movies but will watch them because he knows it’s what Lydia likes.  He is partly or acutely uncomfortable with physical affection.  Negative generalizations about guys annoy him.  And finally, he is afraid that his best friend Lydia wants more than just a friendship.  A typical day for Chris would be going to school, eating lunch with Lydia, going home and doing homework in his kitchen, also with Lydia.
