I've dealt with people like this before, in fact I still do...
What happens in situations like this is, that most people like that put WAAAAAAY too much of themselves into that character, and when they post they're basically putting themselves out there to be judged...but in cartoon form, and they become oversensitive.

I know someone who's dating a character just like her, that she made up. But she's dating him ''in real life'' in her head. Heaven help you if you say one thing bad about him too, or give advice on how to fix him...

It's best to stay away from things like that and let them do what they want to do right? I don't really know how to handle people like that. What should I do and why are they doing this?

Usually I just apologize, and say I mean no disrespect so my plate is clean at least.
If they do NOT accept your apology well that's their problem.

Thanks. I'll make sure to remember that for the next time.
