Being friends with Remi is probably quite easy; just don't expect any intense emotions or strong initiative. He's easy-going, easy to please and rather absent-minded. If he needs to take control of a conversation or situation, things get rather slow and quiet. That is, if you don't get into dry cleaning or textiles or anything in that genre. That is his one source of genuine inspiration.
To be honest, I don't know if Remi will end up having any rivals. I mean, he embodies the exact opposite of 'conflict'. He is extremely difficult to frustrate, is generally a nice guy and is quite careless. Of course he has some pride, it's just that it's virtually impenetrable. Any case where he would try to somehow disagree with anyone would be in self-defense.
Remi is a heterosexual, male individual - and it shows. Obviously he is interested in affection; physical or psychological. However, being in an actual relationship with the guy could be quite difficult seeing as he's not exactly a romantic. You would have to accept the simple gestures if you per chance would end up falling in love with him.
