You said you don't like being the center of attention, and I can totally see that with Leo since he himself avoids camera time usually at all costs !
He would enjoy the fact that you are Multilingual , and he'd find that such a turn on!
He'd also enjoy the height difference, oh yes, that height!
You two would be hella cute trust me !
plus he'd accept your cooking because he enjoys the little things and appreciates them. <3
my precious kitten
