I’d like to report a crime…
this man has a face like sunshine and a torso like hellfire
this is poetry
don’t lie we all do this with our friends when we see someone attractive
do you ever see your face from a different angle and have a mental breakdown
Oh look at them being happy. The good old days. Will Athelstan ever smile again now?
When he sees Ragnar again, he’ll smile.
And they’ll be this big slow motion run towards each, and they’ll land in each others arms and…wait….no that was a dream…..
no that’s totally what’s going to happen ._.
Natasha is incredibly perceptive, and no doubt understands that Steve’s problems are less to do with his fish-out-of-water situation of being in the 21st century, and more to do with his crushing loneliness. Steve gives every impression of genuinely liking people, but he’s lost everyone he ever knew and grew up with, and is surrounded by people that he doesn’t really trust. He’s so lonely that he’s literally at the point of having intensely emotional conversations with a guy he met while jogging at the park, so Natasha is making the effort to help him improve his social life.
All of those girlfriend recommendations also come with a subtextual hint that she doesn’t want to date him, to discourage off the possibility of him getting too attached because she’s his only friend. She’s purposefully putting herself in the role of “bantery team member” rather than potential love interest, and as a result they seem to have a pretty close relationship already — or as close as you can ever get to Black Widow, anyway.
