Nami soon came to respect Luffy's qualities as a leader, but often gets angry at his irrational thinking and short attention span. In such situations. Luffy and Nami have a relationship much like a boss and an employee. . along the line into Sanji giving Chopper sage advice in Water 7.
After the two year timeskip, she does not over-react, scold, or hit the crew as often for their rash actions anymore, like when she decides to take part in activities such as demanding money when the crew holds Ryugu Kingdom "hostage". In fact she now appears quite calm in the most daunting of situations, most notably when Fake Nami held a gun to her head, implying she has become fairly confident in her abilities. It seems this confidence is paradoxical however, as Nami herself states she isn't weak but she is a "scaredy-cat".
True to her word she and Usopp became extremely confident they could take down Baby 5 and Buffalo, once the threat of their retaliation was no longer a factor. Nami is still prone to panic in the face of imminent danger shown during the descent to Fish-Man Island and Sanji's declaration that he would counterattack the Big Mom shipand her love of money causes her to resort to her old antics of hitting the male crew members.
She still has an extremely high tolerance of alcohol during celebrations. As shown in JayaNami appears to be terrified of bugs and spiders. She screamed and panicked when Usopp pointed out a tarantula crawling up her back and remained scared for the rest of the hunt for the South Bird as more insects emerged. While the rest of the team fought the creatures, Nami elected to just run away from them, saying she could not stand it.
Nami relaxing in a deck chair. From time to time, Nami enjoys casual and leisurely activities, and the most common of these is reclining in a deck chair, often to sunbathe, read, or relax under the shade of a parasol umbrella. During her moments of leisure in her chair, she likes being barefoot, and will often ditch her shoes to lounge more contentedly in her bare feet, to the extent that there have been times where she doesn't even have shoes with her while she relaxes in her chair.
In fact, her first wanted poster picture was taken while she reclined in a deck chair at a pool party in the Post-Enies Lobby Arc. While she is in her deck chair, she may be accompanied by Robin or presented a refreshing snack or drink by Sanji, but she doesn't take kindly to the rest of the crew's rambunctious antics on the ship, which tend to disturb her as she relaxes.
She at first held a lot of tension with herself and the rest of the Straw Hat Pirates before she officially joined.
After the Arlong Park ArcNami finally began to loosen up and started wearing more stylish and revealing clothing instead of the simple and modest clothes and boots that she used as a burglar. She began to favor open-toed shoes, as sandals were the norm in her homeland, the Conomi Islandsand started using sleeveless shirts, since she no longer had to hide her Arlong Pirates tattoo and now had a new one that she could display on her arm with pride.
After the timeskip, she began to wear Criminal brand clothing as well due to it being a popular and particularly stylish brand created by Pappagone of her friends. However, her clothing has sometimes gained unwanted attention, as Sanji has shown delight at seeing her in more provocative outfits, and throughout the Water 7 SagaPaulie consistently scolded Nami in a prudish manner, going as far as calling her a harlot. Nami also liked the beautiful wedding dress that was put on her in Thriller Barkdespite being opposed to the idea of marriage, especially with her "would-be" groom Absalom.
Nami has shown dismay at clothes she is particularly fond of being ruined, angrily striking Luffy when she saw her jacket torn up when she lent it to him in the Drum Island Arc. Likewise, she will even tear apart someone else's clothes if she has to, not hesitating to shred an unconscious Kalifa 's clothes after their battle to find a potential key to Robin's seastone cuffs in the Enies Lobby Arc.
In Whole Cake Island Arcwhen her clothes were burned off by JinbeNami wasted no time stripping a nearby prisoner of his clothes.

Nami is also willing to politely borrow other peoples clothes, such as borrowing Sanji's jacket to wear at the end of the Little Garden Arc after Usopp's plan to save her, Vivi, and Zoro had burned her shirt, leaving her with a black bra on, until she could get a replacement shirt after returning to the Going Merry.
Nami even expressed shock at a talking, clothed crocodile, despite traveling around with Chopper and Carrot from the Mink Tribe as Luffy pointed out and said she should be used to things by now. Nami is greedy and will do anything for money and treasureaccepting any challenge that comes along. Her love of money stems from her childhood, where she lived a poor life and was often upset at having little wealth despite the love of her adopted mother.
While she will send in Luffy and the rest of the crew to meet the demand, the one thing she will not do is sell out a comrade, no matter what the sum. She has several times put her own crewmates in debt over trivial matters like Luffy for tearing her coat and Zoro for borrowingonly not to spend it and return it later. She takes control of the amount of money the crew spends, ever aware of the crew's spending habits such as Luffy's desire to spend all they have on meat and tries her hardest to avoid it getting spent all at once.
To this end, she is in complete horror whenever the rest of the crew wastes money or passes up an opportunity to get it. Bravery Edit She has been known to stand her ground against anyone hurting her comrades, abandoning her otherwise normal routine of trying to stay out of harm's way.
In the Thriller Bark Arconce again Nami refused to run away, and stood her ground when Absalom attacked Lola,  then again when Kuma confronted the crew. She agreed to board his ship and go to his promised land out of fear after seeing all the strong fighters lose the game, but later after hearing his plans that would forsake the sky islandshe soon turns on him.
She is easily one of the Straw Hat's most emotional members, showing much understanding of and insight into feelings. There could be no better proof of his child like mind than this scene This is a guy with no shame!
This is not to say he can't be mature and responsible. Remember when Usopp fought him over the Going Merry. Luffy had to put his foot down because he understood that the ship was a danger to the crew and held fast when Usopp threw accusations at him, because that's what a captain should do. This was one of those things that brought out the leader in him, but his default state is still that of a child.
So how does this relate to why Nami x Luffy won't work? Let's look at a hypothetical situation where Nami falls in love with Luffy and see how these Traits keep the relationship from developing. In most old stories, the heroine falls in love with the hero when he comes to her rescue. Luffy was Nami's knight in shining armor when he gave her his hat and walked away to obliterate Arlong. If Nami already had a crush on this amazing captain, it would be full blown now.
But Nami decides to hold on to her feelings and doesn't make any advances. Luffy, on the other hand, is completely clueless to her feelings see Traits 1 and 3. So they adventure on. As time passes, Nami starts to take note of Trait 3, but dismisses it, thinking that he will grow up soon enough. But she also starts noticing his tendency for Trait 2 when he invites Brook to the crew.
When he destroys Crocodile to save Alabasta for Vivi's sake. When he declares war on the World Government for Robin's sake. When he punches a Celestial Dragon despite all warnings, for Hatchan's sake. When he claims Fishman Island as his territory for Shirahoshi and the merfolk's sake.
Any other author would have turned this into a harem by this point, given the number of girls who owe their lives to him thank heavens for that!
This list goes on and on. Nami realizes that he didn't free her home from Arlong's clutches because of any special feelings for her.
He did it because he was her friend. And this is what Luffy does for his friends. Extraordinary deeds without batting an eye, because in his mind, that's what friends do.
And she also starts giving Trait 1 serious consideration. She comes to realize that despite everything he'd done, he only cares about being the Pirate King and nothing else. And all the while, Luffy never realized a thing see Trait 1 and 3.
Now of course, this never happened. Nami never developed feelings for Luffy or for anyone. But this is what I assume would happen if Nami found herself falling for Luffy.
