Hardening alistair

I am torn here. I have completed 3 characters so far (2 good, 1 bad) and I am on my 4th character (good). I haven't hardened Alistair yet in any of my playthroughs, and I am planning on doing that in this one. However, I feel bad, since it is a pretty jerk thing to say to him (and then you have to insult him again at camp), and although I want to see the "better leader" Alistair, I feel like I am going to miss out on the fun, cool Alistair.

What do you think I should do?

*end game spoilers*

Also, on my last character, (female human noble) I did the Alistair romance and became queen. I did not harden Alistair. Just out of curiosity, how is the ending different if you marry Alistair AND harden him?

Wow, yeah that's great.

If you actually read my post, I am not asking HOW to harden him. I am simply asking whether I should or not.

show him something sexy
If you want a storyline, go read a book. If you want to watch graphics, watch a movie. If you wanna have fun, play a game

You are the one with three playthroughs already. I say go for it, see what it's like. Personally, I would have loved a 'harder' alistair along with me in my game. It's your game.
DA:O! ^_^

I was weary about it too, but ultimately he thanks you and is better for it. His main problem is he's so afraid of letting people down that he won't take command or make decisions easily. Even though it's a jerk thing to say (I wish they'd come up with better dialogue there) it basically just injects him with the confidence he desperately needs.

He remains the cute, bubbly, funny, light-hearted guy he always was, just with a little more confidence in his abilities. Don't worry.

Well I think that him marrying anora is required for one of the endings and he needs to be hardened for that. Or am I wrong? I am trying to go that route this playthrough.

you DON'T need to harden him for him to marry Anora...just maxed out coercion, i think.
