Rorys are extremely attractive, with a really hot body and a massive dick. Usually hanging out with his guy friends, he'll completely cut them off no matter what just so he can be with a girl. A lot of girls fall for Rory, but only every blue moon does he keep one, cause he's extremely picky about his women. He's also very smart, sensitive and supportive, but can be lazy, easily angered, unmotivated and shy. Rory's usually have high intellect for their age, and can be very creative.
Some blonde: Oh my god did you hear about Hayley? She hooked up with Rory last night
Other chick: Hah, yeah, I did a week ago, he's got the biggest cock.
Another Chick: are you guys talking about that shy guy over there?
Some Blonde: yeah
Another Chick: I thought he was a Rory, I mean just look at that ass!

A smart, charming individual with a unique charisma that causes all the girls within the building to be unnaturally attracted to him, but not in a romantic way. All relationships end in the friend zone and there are no escapes.

IF a hot girl likes a Rory, she will not admit it because, despite said charisma and charm, she would feel embarrassed to associate herself with him in public/around close family due to his being a little husky. Hence, Rory will stay in the Friend Zone regarding that person until Rory dies.
Sources: personal experience(s)
Other notes: Despite constantly being friend-zoned, Rory does truly care but feels sad that he will be Forever Alone forever.
"Hey, who is that guy? I feel strangely attracted to him and ashamed of it at the same time!"
"Oh... that's Rory. We're......friends."
